Top-10-Things-You-Need-To-Know-About-the-2015-Audi-A3-Sedan-Main-Art

Everyone knows “bigger is better,” especially in America. It’s practically our national slogan; the founding fathers should have included it in the Bill of Rights as the 10.5th Amendment. Here in the land of the free and the home of the brave there may be a compelling case for all things large and in charge, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for small.

There’s nothing wrong with going compact, especially when it comes to cars. With high fuel prices and environmental concerns on the minds of more drivers than ever, people are looking to downsize, but they don’t necessarily want to sacrifice luxury accoutrements. Luckily the industry is responding to this demand, particularly high-end German brands.

BMW has offered its 1 Series in the U.S. for a few years now, Mercedes-Benz is poised to introduce its much-anticipated CLA-Class compact sedan in September and Audi is cooking up a brand-new version of its popular A3. This 2015 model promises drivers a mountain of premium features in a deliciously right-sized package. Here’s everything you need to know about this new product from Ingolstadt.

Top 10 Automotive Stories of 2012


With a heavy heart the staff of AutoGuide.com say goodbye to 2012, along with its triumphs and tragedies. We await the New Year with open arms, and welcome its promise of a better world.

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 was a year of the dragon, and it proved to be the stuff of legend, but thankfully it wasn’t a fire-breather. The Mayans were flat-out wrong; their doomsday prophecy was about as accurate as Bernie Madoff’s promise of a sound investment opportunity.

Still, the year brought other significant stories. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland discovered a subatomic particle consistent with the legendary Higgs boson. Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon, passed away, and in a brutal political battle Barack Obama won a second term as president of the United States.

Of course the automotive industry made its share of headlines throughout the year. Here’s a rundown of the Top 10 stories from the past 12 months.
