Last year’s most powerful engine option is now standard across the board. Every A3 carries a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out a healthy 220 horsepower. Front-drive models run with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, while Quattro all-wheel drive models retain a six-speed unit. The A3 returns an impressive 29 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving, or 27 mpg with the Quattro system.
Audi also offers a soft-top convertible version known as the Cabriolet, which offers the same equipment and options as the sedan.
Comes fully equipped with leather upholstery, power driver seat, panoramic sunroof (sedan), a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, heated mirrors and washer nozzles, 17-inch wheels (18-inch available), and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite and HD radio. The available Convenience Package tacks on keyless ignition and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility. Heated front seats are a standalone options.
