If you want a nice car with decent performance and high mileage this is it. Everyone is pushing hybrids down our throats when diesel is where its at. You get the best of both worlds, performance and mileage! I drove the Lexus CT200 and it felt like I was driving a go cart, no power at all!! Standard features and tech toys were top notch but it also was VERY small on the interior. Im 6'5" and I have room in the A3. In the Lexus it felt like I was in a soap box car (interior room, fit features were all top notch).
Europe has known and embraced diesels for a while but the US is still behind here. While you dont get sports car performance there is plenty of get up where it really counts in day to day city driving. Torque is plentiful and thats what you use in normal daily driving. Gas mileage is on par with hybrids yet you dont have to sacrifice driving fun/experience to get it. I live in Ca and diesel is about 10 cents more than premium (go figure) but I still come out ahead due to the mileage. I just purchased the car and (without it being broke in yet) I'm getting 500 miles a tank on 13, 14 gallons of diesel!! What other luxury car can you get for 35k that can do that!!! Quality interior (leather standard), high quality materials and fit is top notch. All the normal stuff you'd expect as well (bluetooth, satellite radio, heated seats)
Do yourself a favor, if youre in the market for a small to midsize luxury car, give the Audi A3 TDI a look!!!! I couldnt be happier!!!
