Audi smartphone interface
This feature enables Apple CarPlay® and Google™ Android Auto™ interface, allowing you access to your compatible smartphone. Services such as navigation and select third-party apps can be incorporated and controlled through the MMI® touch interface, voice control system or steering wheel controls.
Audi pre sense® basic and Audi pre sense® front
Audi pre sense® basic is standard on the A3 Cabriolet, and can assist during emergencies by beginning to close the side windows and by tightening the front safety belts. Additionally, Audi pre sense® front – standard on all trims – helps prepare for a front end collision. When a hazard is detected, visual and acoustic warnings are enabled and the brake system is precharged. If a collision is unavoidable, the system can help initiate deceleration.
Audi side assist with Rear cross traffic assist
Standard on Premium Plus and Prestige trims, the available Audi side assist with Rear cross traffic assist helps the driver be more aware of their surroundings. Audi side assist uses LED lighting to alert the driver when a vehicle is in their blind spot, while Rear cross traffic assist uses rear sensors to help scan the area behind and to the rear sides of the vehicle.
Audi active lane assist
Standard on Prestige trims, Audi active lane assist helps the driver stay in their lane. At speeds above 40 mph, the system helps detect when the vehicle begins to leave the lane without signaling. Then, the system can provide gentle, corrective steering and steering wheel vibrations as an additional warning of lane departure.
Audi adaptive cruise control with stop & go
The A3 Cabriolet offers available Audi adaptive cruise control with stop & go which utilizes braking and acceleration to help maintain a set distance from a vehicle in front. The stop & go function allows for the A3 Cabriolet to come to a full stop in traffic and then begin moving again at the driver’s command.
Parking system plus
Parking system plus uses front and rear acoustic sensors to help detect when you are close to another object. The system automatically engages in both “Reverse” and “Drive” within 1 meter of approaching an object, under 6 mph. With the rear view camera, the MMI® display provides a rear view of the parking situation, helping to increase driver comfort when parking or leaving — especially in tight spaces.
