Honestly, this Audi A3 TDI is fun to drive. Something interesting to note is that none of my friends have any idea that it is a diesel. No one on the street can smell or hear anything different. But is the difference in price worth it?

There’s no doubt that the A3 TDI stacks up as a premium compact wagon. But there’s a big question, in our minds at least, as to whether this or any other premium compact stacks up high enough to justify the price.

We came into this review hoping to be blown away by the Audi A3 TDI, but that just didn’t happen. Although it offers good utility and is fun to drive, we were expecting a lot more luxury. And it’s not like Audi discounts the A3 TDI to make up for its shortfalls.

If you can find an A3 with no noises, don’t need the latest-greatest interior and perhaps actually like the MMI control system, you are dead meat. You will find it pretty close to impossible to leave the Audi store without buying one.
