The 2015 Audi A3 2.0T Quattro is rated to return 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

Powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the Audi A3 2.0T packs 220 hp and a six-speed, dual-clutch transmission. While the fuel economy figures aren’t excellent, they are respectable in the category for an all-wheel drive model. The A3 is more fuel efficient than the A4 2.0T Quattro by four mpg, but is short of the Mercedes-Benz’s CLA 250 rating of 26 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. The CLA 250 only powers the front wheels and will suffer a slight fuel mileage penalty when equipped with all-wheel drive.
