While many luxury automakers offer an introductory model that doesn't hold a lot of appeal for anyone other than someone looking to drive a vehicle bearing a fancy logo, Audi operates in a completely different way. The Audi A3 is anything but basic, loaded as it is with the modern day technologies and safety features that our Jacksonville-area customers treasure.


Available as either a handsome sedan or a sporty convertible, the Audi A3 expresses the unique Audi design aesthetic whether it's at rest or driving down A1A to Ponte Vedra Beach or Palm Valley. In fact, the convertible practically demands to be taken on ocean-side travels, or winding your way around the greater-Jacksonville area on a beautiful sunny day. Designed with a focus on smart, elegant lines, the A3 slips through traffic with an appealing, aerodynamic silhouette that draws envious glances from other drivers.

The interior features a well-appointed cabin, with a serene sense of design and features and controls that are smartly placed within the driver's realm. Drivers and passengers alike will enjoy the premium materials as well as an infotainment system that ranks among the segment's best when it comes to ease-of-use and responsiveness.


Two engines power the Audi A3, with each offering the engaging driving dynamics you want in a smartly-sized sedan or convertible. A 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is standard for many models, while some received an upgrade to a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that offers more horses and torque for San Marco road warriors to take advantage of.

Then there's the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron, which features a plug-in hybrid motor that delivers the best of both worlds when it comes to power. It combines a gas engine with an electric motor, delivering both sporty performance and excellent efficiency.

When it comes to handling, the Audi A3 has earned significant praise from the automotive press for its ability to take on even the most winding of roads. Sharp steering and a responsive suspension help give you a greater sense of control, with the vehicle hugging the road and smoothly transitioning into curves.

Trim Levels

While these can vary by model year, traditionally the Audi A3 has been offered in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Each one is a well-appointed work of art and technology, which we've found makes it even more fun to comparison shop between them.


Obviously, technologies and features change, improve, and update through the years. One thing that remains true? The Audi A3 is equipped with the premium sound and infotainment systems that make driving even more of a pleasure, especially when you're able to connect to your music, contacts, navigation, and more. Add in safety and driver assistance features that help keep you and yours safe and sound, and you can see why the luxurious Audi A3 is so much more than a "starter" car.
