Premium and classy, the A3 cuts a smart figure. LED headlights come as standard, with sporty bumpers and a stylish profile to turn heads. Inside, a plush cockpit with the Virtual Cockpit and a 10.1” touchscreen awaits.
The A3 is powered by class-leading turbocharged TFSI and TDI engines, with the TFSI available in 110, 150 and 190PS outputs. The 2.0 TDI is offered in 116, 150 and 200PS power outputs, with an S tronic gearbox available across most engines.
The 380-litre boot (Sportback) is plenty for a daily driver and if you fold the rear seats the boot capacity expands to 1,200-litres. The TFSI e model has a 280-litre boot, which is still enough for daily shopping trips. Vorsprung models have a powered tailgate.
Living with it
Smooth, efficient and refined, the A3 makes driving easy. Vorsprung models have several neat features, like a panoramic sunroof, Advanced Key (keyless entry) and the Audi Virtual Cockpit Plus featuring a 12.3" display.
