About the Audi A3

Featuring a perfected balance of style and practicality, the Audi A3 delivers a combination of invigorating performance and premium design. Few compact luxury sedans can deliver precision handling and efficiency quite like the A3. Standard power comes in the form of a 2.0-liter TFSI® four-cylinder engine along with your choice of front-wheel drive or legendary quattro® all-wheel drive for stability and confidence when the roads are slippery. A standard 48-volt mild hybrid system improves efficiency without sacrificing the sport sedan performance you expect from an Audi.

The luxurious cabin of the A3 impresses with standard heated leather front seats, a standard panoramic sunroof, and an optional Bang & Olufsen® Sound System with 3D Sound for an unparalleled listening experience. Groundbreaking technology features are another core strength of the Audi A3. These include the available Audi virtual cockpit with heads-up display, standard MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology, and a standard Audi smartphone interface with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration.  As a leader in its segment, drivers continue to prefer the sophistication and eye-catching style of the Audi A3.

What the Critics Say

"Looking every bit like an A4 that has shrunk in the wash, the A3 offers everything we love about Audi sports sedans in a compact package. It's a tossable, spry little thing with available Quattro all-wheel drive and a potent optional turbocharged four-cylinder engine." -- Car and Driver

"The A3 wears the same look as the rest of the Audi range, but somehow, this little guy wears it better than most. The look is complemented by shorter overhangs fore and aft, a smallish rear deck, an eye-pleasing treatment between the main and lower grilles, and a stylishly rounded roofline." -- The Car Connection

2022 Audi A3 Exterior

What's New for 2022

For 2022, the A3 was treated to a clean-sheet redesign by the engineers at Audi. Those engineers were careful to preserve the winning character of the A3 while improving in several key areas. Besides the refined exterior styling, you'll find quite a bit more space inside. Headroom, shoulder room, and legroom are all improved over the previous model. In addition, you'll also get some of the same tech found in the flagship Audi models, such as the standard 10.1" center touchscreen.

2022 Audi A3 Exterior Styling

Eye-Catching Styling

The freshly redesigned exterior of the 2022 Audi A3 is poised to make this car an instant classic. You'll find it hard to keep yourself from looking back at your new A3 every time you park it. The new A3 has a muscular, yet subdued design, with its gently flared wheel wells perfectly complementing the sharp angles found elsewhere in the design. It's perfectly balanced highlighting the dual nature of the A3 as a sporting luxury car. Audi designs are never overstated, and the 2022 A3 is no exception. For those who want an even sportier look, the available black optic sport package accentuates the key design elements of the A3 with tasteful black accents, resulting in a purposeful, high-performance look.

Tech-Focused Interior

Cutting-edge tech features found inside the premium interior of the Audi A3 help reimagine your daily commute. Standard on every A3, the 10.1-inch Multi-Media Interface (MMI®) touchscreen interface utilizes handwriting-recognition technology that allows the driver to "write" their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers. Also standard on every A3 is the Audi smartphone interface with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration that lets you seamlessly access your favorite apps and media. You'll also enjoy a complimentary six-month trial of Audi connect PRIME and Wi-Fi hotspot for passengers with Audi connect PLUS online services. The available Audi virtual cockpit features a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument display, allowing you to customize information such as available MMI® Navigation plus and audio as well as access Google Earth™.
