Completely redesigned for 2015, the Audi A3 has been transformed from the previous generation’s 4-door hatchback to an all-new premium compact sedan. Built on a lightweight platform and featuring a sleek, aerodynamic design, the A3 is available with either front-wheel drive or quattro® all-wheel drive. There is also a choice of two different 4-cylinder turbocharged engines: a 170-hp 1.8L model, and a 220-hp 2.0L model. The standard transmission for both engines is a 6-speed dual-clutch automated manual.
The available Audi 4-mode drive select system provides drivers with the ability to choose between 4 driving modes to customize the steering effort, throttle response, and shift characteristics of the 2015 A3.
Available in three trims — Premium, Premium plus, and Prestige — the new Audi 4-door compact is loaded with a wide assortment of comfort, convenience, and tech features, including:
12-way power driver’s seat with 4-way power lumbar support
LED daytime running lights and LED taillights
60/40-split folding rear seats
Bluetooth phone and audio
HD and satellite radio
Upper trim levels add features such as heated front seats, keyless start/stop/entry, automatic dual-zone climate control, and a voice-controlled navigation system.
Lowcountry and coastal Georgia area drivers are going to find a whole lot to like about the 2015 Audi A3. With a base MSRP of $29,900, the A3 is the ideal entry-level compact luxury sedan.
