Starting with price, we must say that we’ve got what we predicted. Audi will cost around $28,750 for the base model, while new Volvo C30 is cheaper for about $1,000. We cannot say that this is such a big difference, but it does exist. Now about the engine, and here is where the surprises come… Audi A3 model for year 2012 got for itself just the 2.0L 200hp I4. Not bad, but let’s look at the Volvo C30, the hear of this beasty got 2.5L 227hp I5. Not the difference becomes feasible… for such a money difference.. in the other direction. But in terms of fuel economy both of them are not the best offers. They can go just for 21mpg in city and around 29 on the highway.
