Audi A3
  • Audi A3

  • Starting MSRP: $27,270
  • Engine specs: 2 liters, four cylinders
  • Gas mileage: City - 30 mpg
  • Highway - 42 mpg (TDI model)

The Audi A3 with a diesel engine has exceptional fuel economy, an important feature for a car for commuting. The leather seats also help make for a comfortable ride to the office.

The A3 is another 2012 IIHS Top Safety Pick, and includes standards such as front dual-stage air bags, and thorax side air bags for front and rear passengers. It also has a safety unlock feature if the air bags deploy.

For commuters driving in less-than-optimal conditions, the A3 has antilock brakes with electronic brake-pressure distribution and brake assist.

The sporty A3 comes in nine colors and features a 10-speaker sound system and MP3-compatible CD player.
