    "The new A3 sedan adopts Audi's signature design language" which hasnt changed for at least a decade

    by the appearance of knobs- it doesn't have climate control? Ugh. It's amazing how spoiled I've gotten.

    Same boring design, hard to tell whether its a 4 or a 8, except for size. Interior looks cheap. Probably available in a host of exciting gray colors. One good thing about this car. It will motivate Mercedes Benz to up the horse power on the base CLA. If BMW and Ford are reliably getting 240hp out of their 2 liter engines why is MB settling for 208?

    I sat in one of these at the Auto show and it's a nice-high quality sedan. Plastics were very good quality and the structural quality felt typical VAG-solid. At 6'2" it was comfortable, but my seating position seriously encroached on the rear seat room to the point where it wouldn't be practical for me. Still it felt like a well-made and designed product with better apparent quality than the Mercedes CLA, which felt even more confined and impractical, with lower quality plastics and blatant cost-cutting strewn throughout it's cabin. IMO

    Sure it does morey. Turn the knob one way the interior climate gets warmer, turn it the other the climate gets cooler. How much more control do you need?

    @Edmunds-- You state the A3 2.0T Quattro is your "top pick among entry-level luxury sport sedans" but how do you rate it against the current coupe models of the BMW 128 and 135?

    For a 2.0T Quattro Premium optioned with MMI, Cold Weather package, Aluminum Style package and metallic paint to run up to 37,200 but still miss things like individual map lights, ambient cabin illumination, automatic dimming mirrors, automatic climate control, HomeLink and even an electronic key is kind of sad.

    Luxury brands are going to start making the air in the tires and power windows and locks extra-cost options. How can you feel pampered when you're being nicked-and-dimed for things that are standard on practically the most entry-level Fiat?

    I can't believe it doesn't at least have Climatic, the mostly manual climate control that at least holds the set temperature.
