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 compact Audi S3 adds high-performance muster to a luxury sedan, offered in two trim levels with seating for five. Standard outfitting includes: 18” premium alloy wheels, summer touring tires, remote entry/start, customizable drive settings, automated xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights, LED tail lamps, automated windshield wipers, powered sunroof, two-zone climate control, powered and heated front seating, tilt and telescope steering wheel, leather upholstery, 60/40-split-folding rear seat, Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration, HD radio and a 10-speaker sound system. Upgrade the trim or add-on options and you can get a parking camera with front and rear parking sensors, 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, GPS, collision mitigation system, 18” wheels and more. Driving the A3 is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
