According to the folks at Business Week, Audi has surpassed BMW as the luxury car dealer of 2015. By introducing 17 either new or revamped models just for 2015, Audi was primed to jump into the #1 spot in luxury sales for the first time this February.
The 2015 Audi A3 compact and Q7 SUV were by far the biggest sellers. Car and Driver magazine describes the Audi A3 as a “great-handling, attractive sedan with an upscale interior and luxury features not generally expected in this segment.” It comes standard with a 170-hp 1.8-liter turbo four with front-wheel drive and six-speed auto. You could opt to upgrade to the 220-hp 2.0-liter four with a six-speed auto and Quattro all-wheel drive.
Car and Driver deems the Audi A3 superior.
“Steering is precise and the ride is composed; fit and finish are superb,” it reports.
Motor Trend magazine finds itself infatuated with this sedan.
“What a cutesy little car!” they reported upon test driving the 2015 Audi A3. “It bewilderingly weighs just 44 pounds less than the biggest and portliest-in-rodeo Regal, but will fly on country back roads with a crisp throttle pedal that could pass muster for a naturally aspirated engine (under load), a happy-to-be-manually shifted transmission, and enthusiastic transient response.”
Consumer automobile research site Edmunds.com praises the Audi A3’s interior as consistent with the Audi brand in looks and feel.
“The cabin’s design and materials are up to the lofty standards Audi has set for the industry, meaning everything fits tightly, moves with precision and looks and feels top-shelf,” it declares.
