Complex Says: Some people will tell you that the Audi A3 is just "a VW for cocks who are willing to pay to not be seen behind a VW badge." While this may hold water for some buyers, many are buying the A3 for the optional AWD and the nicer interior. Once you factor in the expense of the leather seating option on the GTI the prices are getting quite close to each other anyway.
