Exterior

Impeccable Style is in our DNA

Admit it, you've always loved bending the rules. Heck, sometimes you enjoy breaking them. The new Audi A3 is no different, breaking the rules that seem to make all compact cars look the same. From grille to taillights, the Audi A3 features strikingly classic details, such as rich contoured edges, LED headlights and taillights, and meticulous aluminum inlays. Yes, the Audi A3 is compact, but it's big on style.

·       See and be Seen: Confidence is more than meets the eye; it's about ensuring your place on the roadways. The Audi A3 is equipped with both striking and efficient LED headlights, taillights, and turn signals integrated in side mirrors.

·       The Most Powerful Mirrors Yet: While many auto manufacturers are promoting the addition of heated mirrors to their lineup, Audi is taking a step ahead. The Audi A3 provides power-adjustable, power-folding, heated exterior side mirrors with auto-dimming driver's side mirror.

·       Details, Details, Details: The Audi A3 is nothing short of upscale. From the Audi Singleframe® grille, to the dual exhaust outlets, the aluminum trim around exterior windows, to even the integrated trunk spoiler, the Audi A3 is a work of design perfection. Designers have even gone so far as to paint the radiators black in the Audi lineup so they are undetectable from behind the grille.

·       Unstoppable in Any Weather: Maintain visibility in any weather condition. The Audi A3 features heated windshield washer nozzles to instantly clear ice and grime, no matter how cold it may be outside.

·       Take the Top Down in the Audi A3 Cabriolet: Sometimes the open air of Rochester has to be experienced, and the Audi A3 is more than happy to deliver. Simply open or close the retractable acoustic folding roof with the press of a button for immediate access to the outdoors. And, for the ultimate in comfort, the A3 Cabriolet is designed with Thermocool™ leather which reduces the surface temperature of the seats by up to 20 degrees, even in direct sunlight.





Interior

Authentic Audi Style

 

There's a bit of daredevil in all of us, and the new Audi A3 provides the landscape to let your inner daredevil free. Designed to be your own mobile control room, the Audi A3 features a striking wraparound dash design, innovative, three-dimensional decorative inlays and horizontal design lines. Add that to the A3's cockpit-inspired cabin and you've got an interior that is the hallmark of craftsmanship and design ingenuity.

·       Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control: Because two people never can seem to agree on a temperature, the Audi A3 is equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control where each party can program their ideal temperature and relax.

·       Panoramic Sunroof: Enjoy a clear view of the skies with the Audi A3's available panoramic sunroof. Whether you choose to open the sunroof completely with the touch of a button, or if you'd rather let the light in behind closed glass, it's your Audi A3 and your choice. 

·       Ambient LED Interior Lighting: Set the mood in the Audi A3 by choosing between more than a dozen lighting colors. Aside from having an interior customized to your preferences, you can also link the Ambient LED Interior Lighting with blind-spot warning which provides a flash of red light in the event you open a door when an object or vehicle is in the blind spot. 

·       60/40-Split Folding Seat: When it comes to cargo, sometimes a trunk just isn't enough. Make a split decision, and fold a portion or the entire rear seat to open the cabin for additional cargo room.
