The Audi A3 is completely redesigned for 2015. Unlike previous model years, with the A3 positioned as a 4-door hatchback, the new A3 is instead a small sedan. The premium sedan is offered in three different trims, with either turbocharged 1.8L or 2.0L power mated to a 6-speed Audi S tronic dual-clutch transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with Audi's excellent quattro all-wheel drive available, and Audi claims the 2.0 is capable of 0-60 mph is 5.8 seconds. Arriving later in 2014 will be an A3 cabriolet, an A3 TDI clean diesel, and a potent S3, with a gasoline-electric hybrid A3 e-tron coming in 2015. Pricing for the new A3 sedan starts at $29,900.
