    Interior

    Photos and Images of the Audi A3 Interior

    For its generational change the A3 has adopted Audi’s latest interior design and layout, with elements like the air vents inspired by Lamborghini.

    Your eyes are immediately drawn to the beautiful 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster and the 10.1-inch MMI touch infotainment display, both offering the crispest of graphics and buttery smooth animations.

    The inbuilt satellite navigation system offers Google Maps, online traffic updates and hazard alerts, parking information, weather updates and fuel prices, thanks

    Even the base A3 35 TFSI has a creamy leather steering wheel that feels great in the hand, and wheel-mounted paddle shifters are fitted if you want to take control of the transmission yourself. We also appreciate the proper climate controls.

    Comfort up front is good even in the standard, manually-adjustable first-row pews.

    Row two in the regular A3 is slightly more spacious than the performance-oriented S3 as you don’t have the tall S seats with integrated headrests up front. Forward visibility in the rear is also improved as a result.

    Speaking of kids, there’s ISOFIX anchor points on the outboard pews and top-tether points behind all three positions.

    While Australians tend to see SUVs as family cars, Europeans have used cars like the A3 as family runabouts for decades – it’s more than up to the task.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Audi A3 drivability?

    The Audi A3 35 TFSI variants are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with a 48V mild-hybrid system producing total outputs of 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque.

    Audi claims the A3 35 TFSI can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 8.4 seconds.

    The A3 40 TFSI quattro is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 140kW and 320Nm. Audi claims the A3 40 TFSI quattro can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 7.0 seconds.

    The S3 is also powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine but produces 228kW and 400Nm. Audi claims the S3 can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.8 seconds.

    The flagship RS3 is powered by a 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine producing 294kW and 500Nm. Audi claims the RS3 can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 3.8 seconds.

    All Audi A3 variants have a seven-speed dual-clutch transmissions, with all but the entry-level A3 35 TFSI sending drive through an all-wheel drive system. The A3 35 TFSI only sends drive to the front wheels.

    What’s new with the latest A3 is the powertrain.

    This new generation of 48V mild-hybrid technology is possibly the best implementation of the tech I’ve experienced thus far, and it’s genuinely efficient in the real world based on our time with the A3 35 TFSI.

    Audi says the new mild-hybrid system uses vehicle sensors to know when to turn the engine off or on, and it’s now able to coast when you’re creeping in traffic rather than firing up the petrol engine once you lift off the brake pedal.

    It seems to know what you want, when you want it, which in previous cases wasn’t necessarily the case. Seeing the stop/start display in the digital instruments was interesting, and refinement is so good you rarely notice when the engine is off or on.

    While it offers effortless performance, the 35 TFSI’s 110kW and 250Nm mean it’s not quite as fast as the Sportback’s chunky design and 19-inch alloys might suggest.

    Peak torque is on tap from just 1500rpm and sticks around through to 3500rpm, so you have this effortless wave to ride. This car is best driven in a measured manner as designed.

    Speaking of ‘cruise’, the standard cruise control system takes away from the luxury experience. I’d definitely be ticking the box for the Comfort package ($2600) to get the excellent adaptive cruise assist function that basically enables Level 2 semi-autonomous highway driving.

    Ride and handling is pretty well balanced as you’d expect, with a taut chassis bringing tight body control and an almost sporty balance in corners, though a level of give in the suspension that irons out the lumps and bumps of city driving nicely – even on the optional 19-inch wheels seen here.
