, Automotive Editor -

As Audi’s smallest sedan, the A3 delivers the brand’s trademark refinement and elegance in a tidy package that’s priced within reach of the average new car buyer.

What's New for 2015

The A3 is totally new this year, eschewing last year’s hatchback design for a proper sedan body. A convertible is expected later in the model year.

Choosing Your Audi A3

The front-drive A3 starts out with 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder good for 170 horsepower. Buyers can upgrade to a 220-horsepower 2-liter turbo, which comes paired with all-wheel drive.

There's also a turbo-diesel version of the 2-liter on the way that's expected to return 35 mpg in combined city and highway driving. All engines are hooked to a six-speed automated manual transmission.

No matter which engine you choose, the A3 is available in three trim levels:

CarsDirect Tip

Upgrading to the 2-liter engine with all-wheel drive adds $3,000 to any model, a bargain considering how that setup transforms the A3's performance.
