2016 Audi A3 Buyer's Guide

For the 2016 model year Audi is offering its highly acclaimed and immensely popular compact luxury A3 model in four-door sedan, two-door convertible, and five-door hatchback body styles. You may recall the first A3 model brought to the States employed this design, and many decried its loss with the introduction of the then all-new 2015 model. The smallest Audi model offered in the United States, the A3 displays all of the positive attributes we’ve come to appreciate about its larger siblings. The handsome exterior styling treatment immediately telegraphs its Audi familial association; meanwhile, the model’s world-class interior treatment both delights and coddles occupants. Quattro all-wheel drive, powerful, yet fuel-efficient engines; and a broad array of comfort and convenience equipment further number A3 among the elite.
