After launching the A3 last year, the 2016 A3 ups the ante on standard features, adding a rear-view camera and parking sensors, aluminum-look interior trim, and heated mirrors and windshield-washer nozzles.
The Audi A3 and high-performance S3 sedans are all-new for 2015. Joining the lineup are a fuel-efficient diesel engine and a fun-to-drive convertible.
About Audi A3
Introduced last year, the Audi A3 entry-level luxury sedan and convertible (Cabriolet) are popular thanks to combining an entry-level price with an established luxury brand. The A3 variants all come with well-established Audi driving dynamics, meaning a 2016 Audi A3 is a car you actually want to drive. Sporty and welcoming, the new A3 and sportier S3 models don't feel compromised, despite their relatively low price. The standard panoramic sunroof, bi-xenon headlights and leather seating only sweeten the deal against rivals like the Mercedes-Benz CLA, and the less expensive Acura ILX and Buick Verano. Power choices include the standard gasoline engine, a fuel efficient diesel, or a high-performance 4-cylinder in S3 models. All-wheel drive is available, of course, and a hatchback on the way.
