2018 Audi A3 Release Date, Price and Review

Sponsored Links

The latest-generation A3 debuted in 2015 and marked a departure from the generation it replaced, eschewing the hatchback body style for sedan and convertible body styles. It then received a modest face-lift in 2017. The A3 debuted just one year after the debut of the Mercedes CLA-Class, marking the dawn of a new entry-level era among German automakers. BMW has yet to introduce a sedan in the vein of the others, instead doing battle with its rear-wheel-drive 2 Series coupe.The A3 Cabriolet models lose the roof but gain reinforcements elsewhere to shore up the structure. In the bargain they gained about 250 pounds compared to their sedan counterparts. The power-folding top is fully lined, but its narrow rear window and large, unbroken swaths of fabric obscure visibility.Under the skin, the A3 is closely related to the Volkswagen Golf. That’s no bad thing, as both are quite accomplished compact cars. Be aware that it’s possible to option up an A3 to an eye-watering degree. At some point, buyers might consider an A4 over a heavily optioned A3. 2018 Audi A3

what’s new

For 2018 Audi A3 receives only minor changes to equipment availability. Two USB ports and heated front seats are now standard on all A3s, and blind-spot monitoring is standard on the Premium Plus trim levels.

we recommend 2018 Audi A3

While the A3 Cabriolet is an eye-catcher, many buyers will be well-served by the A3 sedan. We recommend the Quattro variant not solely for its all-wheel drive but for the nice bump in power it delivers over the front-wheel-drive version. Keep it simple, staying with the base Premium trim, to prevent the price from creeping up to A4 levels. The Convenience package has a lot of bang for the buck, and the Sport package’s upgraded seats and selectable drive modes make it a worthwhile choice, too.

trim levels & features

The 2018 Audi A3 is offered in four-door sedan and two-door convertible (Cabriolet) body styles. Both are available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The trim levels are named PremiumPremium Plus and Prestige in Audi speak, which are listed in order of increasing content.

NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current A3 has received some revisions, including a host of new driver assistance and cabin features. Our findings remain applicable to this year’s A3, however.
