Audi A3 Premium

  • Price: $29,900
  • Gas mileage: 23 mpg city/33 mpg highway

A3 reinvented itself as a sedan rather than last year's hatchback, and it's actually listed as a 2015. As Audi's entry-level sedan, it isn't big -- about the size of a Honda Civic sedan inside and out -- but it is every inch an Audi with all the sporty characteristics expected from this premium brand.

This A3 uses a 170-horsepower, 1.8-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine. Two other more expensive engine choices are available. Still, all engines are mated to a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission.

A panoramic sunroof, leather seating, 10-speaker audio system, Bluetooth connectivity and a rain sensor for the wipers and headlights are all standard.
