Carlos's comments

This car has been one of my favorites since it was introduced in the US in 2005. It's the perfect size, has a great stance on the road and is a very well organized and tidy package. It's difficult to identify a specific attribute that makes this car special because it is just a simply great machine, but some say less is more and it fits this car perfectly. Not "less" lacking, but more knowing when to stop. This is a very "mature" and classic wagon, but with a slight twist that creates it's own footprint. While the A3 has a three-door version in Europe that I prefer, this is as good as it gets in the USA.
