Fuel consumption 6.8 – 12.4 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 80%(view ratings)
The A3 is the most affordable model in Audi's lineup. It’s offered as a sedan and a cabriolet for 2019, the Sportback e-tron variant having been retired. The sedan is available with front-wheel and all-wheel drivetrains, while the latter is standard in the cabriolet. A turbocharged, 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine equips the A3 as well as the sporty S3, and the RS 3 benefits from a five-cylinder turbo that develops 400 horsepower. The cabriolet’s power top can be lowered in 17 seconds.
