Engine

Small and mighty

At the heart of the 2018 Audi A3 Sedan lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® engine that churns out 186 hp of power and 221 lb-ft of torque. An available quattro® all-wheel drive model ups the ante of acceleration, zipping from 0-60 mph in just 5.8 seconds thanks to a more robust 220 hp of power and 258 lb-ft of torque.

Pick your lane

The Audi A3 Sedan has two transmission options to choose from. A seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission with front-wheel drive is standard on the A3 2.0T. An available six-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission with quattro® all-wheel drive is featured on the A3 2.0T quattro® model.

Lighten the load

A weight-saving MacPherson strut front suspension with an aluminum subframe and dynamic axle kinematic frees up unnecessary heft. At the other end, a four-link rear suspension adds balance. Combined, the A3 Sedan provides an exceptional driving experience.

Go the distance

The A3 Sedan is made for road trips. In addition to performance, the engine’s resourcefulness also helps with fuel economy. With an EPA-estimated combined 29 mpg, the A3 Sedan optimizes each ride, whether you’re cruising on the highway or driving stop-and-go in the city.

Go sport

With a three-spoke flat-bottom multifunction steering wheel, Audi drive select and front Sport seats, the available Sport package adds flare to the sporty mid-sized sedan.
