Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2022 Audi A3 Overview

Neil Cumins
Automotive Editor - August 17, 2021

What's New

The Audi A3 compact luxury sedan is all-new for 2022, though its engines are carried over from the old model. The body has been redesigned, interior specifications are improved, and Audi’s flagship infotainment system is standard in every model. There’s also an impressive safety roster across this three-trim range.

Choosing Your Audi A3

Any A3 can be ordered with either front or all-wheel drive, with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system adding $2,000 to the list price of each trim.

In FWD guise, Premium starts at $34,945 including destination, with Premium Plus available from $38,245 and the fully-loaded Prestige starting at $42,245.

Engine Choices

Every A3 is powered by a two-liter turbocharged TFSI engine, branded the "TFSI 40." It generates 201 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque in conjunction with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. This is supplied to either the front or all four wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission.

FWD models return an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 29 miles per gallon city, 38 mpg highway, and 32 combined. In AWD guise, this drops to 28/36/31 MPG.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Cargo capacity for the five-seater Audi A3 has yet to be confirmed at the time of writing (August 2021), but it should be similar to the 12.3 cu ft offered by the outgoing model.


Safety Features

The A3’s cabin is packed with ten airbags and an array of driver aids, though many of these are options rather than standard. Features across the range include pre-collision preparation, with a camera and radar alerting the driver to potential hazards.

There’s lane departure warning and high beam assist, but you’ll need Premium Plus trim to receive adaptive cruise control and active lane assistance. Prestige is unique in receiving a head-up display and traffic sign recognition.

Connectivity

Every A3 comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen incorporating the company’s latest MIB 3 system, with handwriting recognition and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster.

Every model has Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, but features like navigation and wireless charging remain on the options list on Premium Plus, and they aren’t available at all on the entry-level Premium trim. Both are standard on Prestige, as is a head-up display.


A3 Premium – MSRP From $34,945

Despite being the most affordable A3 model, the Premium is well appointed both inside and out. It has leather seats that are heated in the front with eight-way power including four-way lumbar support.

A panoramic sunroof and three-zone climate are also standard, alongside a ten-inch infotainment system with smartphone compatibility. There’s also keyless entry, rain and light sensors, and LED exterior lights.

The Convenience Package is the only option on Premium trim, costing $1,900. It includes auto-dimming and power-folding exterior mirrors, cross-traffic alert and side radar assistance, parking assistance and memory for the driver’s seat, plus an alarm and SiriusXM radio.

A3 Premium Plus – MSRP From $38,245

Significant enhancements on Premium Plus models include adaptive cruise control and a key that can be used from the bottom of a handbag, for fully keyless entry and engine starting.

Wireless device charging and memory for the driver’s seat are other luxuries, while safety is improved during highway drives by active lane assistance.

The $2,250 Technology package combines navigation and Audi’s 12.3-inch virtual cockpit with traffic sign recognition and a 3D Bang & Olufsen stereo system.

A3 Prestige – MSRP From $42,245

Prestige receives the Technology package mentioned above as standard, while adding welcome features like a head-up display and matrix-design LED headlights. There’s also enhanced LED interior lighting with birch wooden inlays.

There are no packages available on the Prestige.

CarsDirect Tip

It’s significantly cheaper to choose a Premium Plus model and add the Technology package, bringing you the key highlights of Prestige trim for almost $2,000 less.
