Unchanged for the current model year, the 2013 Audi A3 is a 5-door hatchback available with a standard or diesel engine. The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine delivers 200 hp and 207-lb ft of torque. Fuel mileage falls between an EPA estimated 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, depending on the selection of a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. For those who covet superior gas mileage, Audi offers an optional 2.0-liter 4-cylinder TDI diesel engine that produces 140 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the diesel engine gets an EPA estimated 30 mpg city and 42 mpg highway. Features include LED lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, panorama sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats, sport front seats, power driver seat, navigation, BOSE® sound system, and iPod® interface. Safety is comprised of dual-stage front airbags, side thorax airbags, head curtain airbags, electronic stability control, anti-lock brake system, electronic brake-pressure distribution, and brake assist. The A3 is backed by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
The Audi A3 is unchanged entering the 2013 model year, though a full redesign is expected soon.
Entry-level luxury; efficient diesel available; a small car with lots of utility
For drivers wanting utility and luxury in a smaller, efficient package, the A3 fits the bill. The "Sportback" 5-door body style offers the spaciousness of an SUV on a platform shared with its Volkswagen cousins the Golf and Jetta. The TDI clean diesel engine is capable of 42 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA, and the gasoline engine gets 28 mpg on the highway. High-end touches such as leather seating and a 10-speaker stereo are standard equipment on both Premium and Premium Plus trim levels.
