Special features for 2016

The Audi A3 competes against other compact premium cars such as the BMW 2-Series, the Mercedes CLA and, to a lesser extent, the MINI Cooper. In past decades, owning a small car meant dealing with little more than bare bones transportation. These days though, owners of small cars need not be deprived of anything, and the A3 looks to continue that trend by offering a vehicle with a small footprint but with luxury-car performance and amenities. The A3 starts under $31,000.
The A3 by Audi offers seating for four and luxurious appointments you won’t find in many other vehicles, available in several trim levels with plenty of addable options. Standard equipment gets you 17” alloy wheels, xenon headlamps (automated), LED daytime running lights, heated/powered side mirrors, remote entry, heated wiper nozzles, front/rear parking sensors, automated windshield wipers, powered front seating, leather upholstery, 60/40 splitting and folding rear seating, Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration, the MMI interface with touchscreen console, two-zone climate control, and 10-speaker audio system with HD radio. Options and upgrades can add larger wheels, larger touchscreen console, remote start, GPS, LED interior lights, rolling Wi-Fi, voice command, upgraded Bang & Olufsen audio system, collision mitigation system, heated front seating, paddle shifters, sport-tuned suspension and more. This sedan features an upgradable and turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 170 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque.
