Performance

Fortunately, a contradiction in terms

Engineering the A3 to be efficient[2] and performance-driven wasn't just a small feat. To us, it was an imperative.

Get a grip on handling

Confidence-inspiring handling is integral to our DNA. Whether you're navigating city streets or back roads, the A3 shows off its German-tuned handling traits everywhere it goes. And with the available quattro® all-wheel drive system, the A3 can help you get a grip in just about any driving situation.[3]

It's light on its feet

Sometimes you have to take things out to put more in. In this case, we took out the weight so we could add in more performance. The A3 employer our ultra® lightweight technology, which uses advanced materials and construction to help improve performance and efficiency[2] without compromising body strength.

Small in size, big on power

As a pioneer in turbocharger technology, Audi can use a smaller engine to help gain the performance benefits of a larger one without compromising fuel efficiency.[2] With your choice of two turbocharged TFSI® engines, the A3 proves the best things do come in smaller packages.

1.8 TFSI®

2.0 TFSI®
