Luxury. Compact. The upcoming Audi A3 Sedan 2014 launches Audi into the superhot compact market, with a deluxe entry that goes up against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLA, Acura ILX, Lexus CT200h, Buick Verano. It’s set to appear first in Europe, with choices galore: three four-cylinder engines that top out at close to 150 mph, six-speed manual or automatic transmission, wheels from 16- to 18-inch, an interior selection of fabrics, two types of leather, and Alcantara, the list…goes on and on. Ample rear passenger and trunk space, 3D display, mileage up to 50 mpg (gas), connected car and Internet networking, the features and options keep rolling. The starting price tag should be around $30,000.
