Pros
Lively acceleration, especially with upgraded engines
Dynamic handling balanced with a smooth ride
High-tech infotainment system and available virtual cockpit
Spacious front seats

Cons

The 2018 Audi A3 is a well-equipped entry-level luxury sedan with style, performance, and content that make it a logical stepping stone for Volkswagen Golf and GTI buyers.

Pros
Audi Virtual Cockpit
Well-equipped for $40,000
Standard automatic emergency braking
Potent 2.0-liter turbo
Available in three body styles

Cons
Tiny backseat/trunk
Best safety equipment limited to Prestige
Cute looks may limit appeal

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the A3 receives only minor changes to equipment availability. Two USB ports and heated front seats are now standard on all A3s, and blind-spot monitoring is standard on the Premium Plus trim levels.

PROS
Good balance of a comfortable ride and sporty handling
Strong acceleration from the turbocharged engine
Refined and stylish cabin

CONS
Limited backseat space
Small trunk, especially with all-wheel drive

The 2019 Nissan Altima is a sharper sedan now, made better with great active safety features and a newly available turbo-4.

Pros
Better exterior looks
Quieter interior in most trims
Great active safety features
Good 8.0-inch touchscreen
Comfortable seats

Cons
SR trim levels get noisy tires
Some hard plastics to be found
Will sedan buyers opt for all-wheel drive?
Where’s the hybrid?

The 2019 Nissan Altima ranked #4 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Nissan Altima has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Composed handling
Comfortable, roomy cabin
Available all-wheel drive and ProPilot Assist
Long list of standard technology features

Cons
Some low-grade cabin materials
Not as agile as some competitors

By: 
usnews.com

The Nissan Altima is one of those competent and capable family sedans that has nonetheless lived in the shadows of the big sellers from Honda and Toyota. Whether loaded with more standard features than the others or given brawny V6 power, the Altima could never quite outrun its also-ran status. The new 2019 Nissan Altima may change all that.

Pros
New engine promises both power and efficiency
Seats are among the most comfortable of any midsize sedan
Offers full suite of semi-automated driving features

Cons
All-wheel drive only available with less powerful engine
Nice, if bland, interior design
