The model that is considered an entry-level is anything but child's play, and the Audi A3 proves that it can run with the big kids. With the choice of two engines, a 1.8 TFSI® engine with 170 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque, and a 2.0 TFSI® engine that offers 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, drivers can also enjoy a Sedan or Cabriolet body style. Either style offers 33 mpg highway and a panoramic sunroof in addition to being offered in Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trim levels. The Prestige trim offers an S Line exterior appearance with front and rear fasciae, side sills, and the S Line fender badges in addition to the typical A3 features.
With quattro all-wheel drive available, heated front seats, HD radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio compatibility with trial subscription, Bang & Olufsen™ Sound System with 14 speakers, leather seating surfaces, and Bluetooth hands-free phone use, the A3 can keep you connected to the outside world and your car at the same time. This can be accomplished through the MMI® navigation and MMI® touch with handwriting recognition that is offered on select trim levels, as well as the parking system with rearview camera, Audi pre sense® basic and Audi Side Assist that uses radar sensors and visual warnings to let you know your blind spot is not clear. The inclusion of these safety features contributed to its earning the 2015 Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, and if these sound like great options, it may be time for a test drive.

This base trim level offers panoramic sunroof, 12-way power driver's seat, parking system with rearview camera, and leather seating surfaces, which tosses out the assumption that a lower trim style doesn't offer great features, including a 90-day trial subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Heated front seats make all the difference in cold New England winters, and with this feature, you can be nice and toasty inside your car on your morning commute. With this feature in addition to the ones offered in the base model, there's no doubt you will be riding in style.
In addition to everything offered in the other trim levels, Prestige offers MMI® navigation with voice control and Audi connect which includes a six-month free trial, color driver information system, HD radio, Audi side assist, and SiriusXM Traffic with four-year subscription.
