New Audi A3 in Austin

The 2018 Audi A3 is the Epitome of Attainable Luxury in Austin

Can you package envy? Serve it up in a delightful wrapping of premium materials and subtle chrome?

Audi thinks yes. And it's why this luxury brand's newest compact car is delivering exceptional results without even trying--and producing envy at every step. Check out the new 2018 Audi A3 sedan, cabriolet, and the 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron here to learn more.

Smarter, Better, Faster

Audi overhauled tech for the last redesign, so the 2018 A3 line remains a well-equipped option for Austin drivers. The new 2018 A3 offers MMI Touch infotainment, as well as Virtual Cockpit, as optional equipment; this is a newer addition for the premium compact car, and makes it a surprisingly connected choice for its class. Safety and driver-assistance systems--like forward-collision warning and rear cross-traffic alert--have also been expanded across the lineup of A3 cars.

But, as you could imagine, comfort is not the only priority on Audi's list. Performance, as always, is a top contender, and the new model does not disappoint. The Audi A3 sedan and cabriolet have trimmed down their engine lineup, now offering only one 2.0-liter turbocharged four that is tuned to one of two levels: 186 horsepower for efficiency, or 220 horsepower for optimal power. While it's no rival for some of Audi's other, more powerful, luxury sedans, it's still peppy, quick, and smooth for any casual driver.

The 2018 Audi Sportback e-tron comes standard with a four-cylinder engine paired to an electric motor, for a combined 204 horsepower and impressive fuel economy.

More Options to Choose From

The modern selection of entry-level luxury cars in Texas are all in tough competition with one another--all except the 2018 Audi A3, of course. This small powerhouse stands alone as a refined, quiet premium option among the noise and bluster of other high-performance compacts. Its swift-but-silent personality makes it a uniquely aggressive car for its size in Austin, without compromising the sleek softness that's defined the Audi brand as one of the leading German automakers.

With a range of body styles, trim levels and package options, the bold and well-equipped 2018 Audi A3 line gives you a variety of choices to deck out your sedan in lavish luxury, or in practicality. The interior has been optimized for comforts both physical and emotional, providing an atmosphere that is at once upscale, inviting, and relaxing. Choose options like the 2018 A3 Premium Sedan, the 2018 A3 Prestige Cabriolet, or the 2018 A3 Sportback e-tron Premium Plus, and you'll love what you get.

The Audi A3 is in the top levels of class, of authority, and of charm--but with a compact body and a starting price that's genuinely attainable for anyone lusting after luxury in Austin, it's a car for the masses, too.
