If you want equal parts safety and enjoyment from your car, consider a pre-owned 2016 Audi A3 1.8T Premium.
The turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 170 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. It delivers an impressive fuel economy of 23 mpg city/33 highway. Buckle up, because you’re in for a wild ride. According to Motor Trend, this Audi provides an abundance of amusement and an exceptional performance, due largely to its superior handling. You can also hit the back roads and have some fun tackling windy turns.
For a bit of added security, upgrade to the Advanced Technology package. This tacks on features like adaptive cruise control and active lane assist. It also includes the highly-praised Audi Pre Sense, which fully applies the brakes if the driver doesn’t react to a perceived threat.
The Audi A3 kicked butt in crash tests, receiving an overall five-star rating from the NHTSA. Even the perfectionists at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a Top Pick+. In addition to getting excellent marks in every category, it was also given an “Advanced” score for avoiding a collision while traveling at 12-mph.
