The 2010 Audi A3 is a sporty, compact wagon that seats five passengers and offers entry-level luxury amenities. New for 2010 is the available 2.0L turbo diesel engine which generates 140 hp and is capable of 30 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway. The only transmission for the TDI engine is the S-Tronic automatic with manual shift mode. The other engine for the 2010 Audi A3 is a 200 hp 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder. This engine is available with the S-tronic or a six-speed manual transmission. For 2010, the S-line appearance package is now standard equipment.
For drivers wanting utility and luxury in a smaller, greener package, the A3 fits the bill. The 'Sportback' 5-door body style offers the spaciousness of an SUV on a platform shared with its Volkswagen cousins the Golf and Jetta. The TDI clean diesel engine is capable of 42 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA, but the direct-inject gasoline engine gets a none-too-shabby 28 mpg on the highway itself. High-end touches such as leather seating and a 10-speaker stereo are standard equipment on both trim levels.
The biggest news for this year's A3 is the fact that the 3.2-liter V6 was dropped from the lineup and a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder clean diesel engine was added. This reflects the shifting needs of American consumers from powerful engines to fuel economy and cleaner emissions. Trim levels have been simplified to Premium and Premium Plus.
There are two Audi A3 engines available for 2010. Both are 2.0-liter 4-cylinders, but one is a TDI clean diesel engine, while the other is a direct-inject gasoline engine. The diesel engine can make 140 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, plus a 30 mpg city/42 mpg highway fuel rating. The turbo-charged gasoline engine trades some of that green credibility for performance, with 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. It still manages 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive.
