The Audi A3 is an upscale small 4-door sedan powered by either a 170 HP 1.8 liter or 200 HP 2.0 liter turbocharged DOHC 4-cylinder engine. The 170 HP engine is backed by an Audi S Tronic dual clutch transmission that powers the front wheels, while the 200 HP engine gets the same transmission but sends the power to all four wheels through Audi's quattro all wheel drive system. The Premium Package is the entry level version of the A3, and though it comes with manual climate control it does have some other nice touches including a panoramic sunroof, leather seating with 12-way powered driver's seat, Xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights, and an integrated trunk spoiler. You also get a nice compliment of infotainment and electronic features such as a driver information system, SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth audio streaming, and an SD card slot capable of handling 32 GB cards.
Options on the Audi A3 Premium include the Audi MMI Navigation package with Audi MMI touch with handwriting recognition technology, an Aluminum Style package, black cloth headliner, summer performance tires, the Audi music interface with iPod integration, and rear passenger thorax side airbags. For drivers who live in cooler climates a Cold Weather package with heated front seats, heated windshield washer nozzles, and heated side mirrors is also available.
