PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – In a very crowded field of compact crossovers/station wagons/hatchbacks,  Audi’s A3 stands out in front of the crowd and not just because the test vehicle advertises it is a diesel with big letters that say TDI on the doors.

It’s all of the style, personality and engineering of the bigger Audis in a package that fits in a small garage.

Fun to drive and torquey the Audi A3 TDI is another chapter in Audi’s book of spectacular station wagons that give you a lot of room while never letting you lose interest behind the wheel!

Oh, and did I mention it’s pretty darn green with that TDI  diesel engine that gives you low emissions and 42 mpg highway. Yeah, pretty darn green!
