My top two choices for next car. It all comes down to how Audi prices the A3. If rumors are true that it comes standard with leather, panoramic sunroof, HID lights, and some nice MMI technology. With the A4 starting at around 32k, I would expect a nicely equipped A3 Quattro to come in around 33-35k.

The CLA however is the better looking car IMO. Though the A3 is not a bad looking car.

Still heavily leaning towrds the CLA. But its always nice to have options.

Quote from the article:
While I have yet to drive either vehicle, which car – at least on paper — is better equipped to warrant your entry-level money?
In other words; this article is nothing more than pure speculation at best. :disappointed:
Has the author even sat inside the vehicles that he's comparing?

8-0 CLA. Lol much different story if this was a audi forum. hehehe.
Well, they'd be e-diots if they didn't vote for the CLA too! :D

The CLA's design/style (namely looks, inside/out) transcends the market-segment in'question (import compact, sporty premium, entry-level luxo' sedans), as it's arguably one of the best looking rides out there regardless of class/size/niche/price/etc.

I haven't owned a car in quite a while now, I have been driving trucks with 4 wheel drive. As far as Mercedes goes with the 4matic is there a significant difference how the front wheel drive and the 4 matic CLA's will handle in snow or wet roads?

I would like to know the answer to that too- I can tell you that my C280 4matic was much better in snow than my C350 RWD.

My thought is this: Audi is not offering Quattro on the A3.....big mistake on their part

This is 100% incorrect. They state it clearly in their own press release they will be releasing a 2.0t quattro. The options are 1.8t w/ FWD only base model, 2.0 TDI, Than a 2.0 tfsi quattro only, and then the higher powered 2.0 S3.

It's a Haldex system just like the CLA. Remember, the A3 is a VW Golf.....
