    2015 Audi A3 or 2012 Audi A6??

    Hello, I just found out after two months at the repair shop my 2013 Audi A4 has been totaled.. it was a very long and BS process. But the good thing is i just got paid for my car and am now looking to get into something new. Iíve been looking at 2012+ Audi A6ís with the 3.0 V6, but have recently been looking at 2015 Audi A3ís with the 2.0 with far less miles or would it be beat to hop back into another A4? I am getting married next year and the car could very well end up being hers ( Iíd be stuck with the ole 99 Honda Accord) . Needing a little feedback on what your suggestions would be or what other car options. I am currently in the 17-20k range. Hope to hear back from a few of you.

    Two totally different cars. Especially from a size standpoint. Apples and oranges. Drive both and see what you prefer.

    do not get the Audi A3 without the quattro - bonus is you get the higher output motor with it

    Sorry to hear about your car.

    I second that they are two very different cars. I used to have a B5 S4, which is nearly the same interior dimensions as the new A3, but now own a 6. The rear seat of the B5 was tight for adults, but the 6 is much more spacious. On the other hand, smaller cars are more fun for spirited driving. Go test drive them both and sit in the back seat (if you plan on ever having adults back there).

    The a6 would have a bit more luxury feel to it, while the 3.0t will feel smoother and more refined. Also you can beat a lot more power out of the 3.0t for pretty cheap.

    The A3 would be a bit more fun to drive, but most likely a bit less soft and refined than something like an A6 would be. Also better fuel economy rating depending on what you want.

    Much appreciated guys for the replies. Ill keep doing my research and check them both out. I have owned two B5 S4ís and a B7 A4. But Iím still fresh to the newer Audiís. A1dan thatís where Iím running into conflict is luxury vs. newer with less miles etc.. I will be living about 45 minutes away from work when married so Iím just trying to do the responsible thing and be smart with my next big purchase!:)
