Die feit dat Mercedes-Benz die nuwe Japannese motors onder hulle vleuels geneem het kon moontlik daartoe bygedra het.

Launched: Audi A3 [2012]

The new popularity

I’ve bought quite a few cars over the years and my shortlists usually included some or other derivative of a car which I believe to be a sensible and beautifully engineered hatchback. It’s never been the most affordable and I’m yet to own one so my admiration of the Audi A3 lives on.
