New Audi A3 in Austin

The 2017 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 sedan is delivering exceptional results without even trying--and producing envy at every step.

Audi has overhauled tech for the 2017 model-year: the new Audi A3 now offers MMI Touch infotainment, as well as Virtual Cockpit, as optional equipment. This is a new addition for the premium compact car. 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 has trimmed down its 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 collection of entry-level luxury cars in Texas is in tough competition--all except the 2017 Audi A3. This small powerhouse stands alone as a refined, quiet premium option among the noise and bluster of other high-performance sedans. Its swift-but-silent personality makes it a uniquely aggressive car for its size, without compromising the sleek softness that's defined the Audi brand as one of the leading German automakers.

With a range of trim levels and package options, the bold and well-equipped Audi A3 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.

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, it's a car for the masses, too.
