In my real life driving of this A3 for a few days, I averaged 27 MPG -- just as predicted. I'm a fan of diesels, but this little gasoline engine was peppy and fun to drive. When I can pass other cars going 65 MPH uphill, I'm a happy girl.
I stand by my recommendation: the Audi A3 is a great car for small families, commuters, couples, dog lovers, and for anyone who needs a small wagon with loads of pep. Zipping around the city in this would be a pleasure.
