2018 Audi A3 2.0T Premium Plus Convertible


The 2018 Audi A3 has quickly driven itself right to the top of the list as one of the most desirable entry-level luxury compact sedans on the market. And with awards like a perfect five-star overall safety score from the NHTSA, a Top Safety Pick+ rating with IIHS, "Best Luxury Small Car for the Money" by U.S. News & World Report, it's no wonder.

Our 2018 Audi A3 is available in both a four-door sedan and a two-door convertible (Cabriolet), and both body styles are available with front or all-wheel drive. The models with front-wheel-drive are built with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 186 horsepower, while the all-wheel-drive models (the famous Audi quattro System), punch forward with more force at 220 horsepower. Surprisingly though, the extra 200 pounds of weight required for quattro system doesn't impact takeoff at all. In fact, the quattro models out-accelerate the lighter front-wheel-drive models.

So what's all included with the 2018 Audi A3?

The Audi A3 starts at a package called Premium. This well-equipped first level includes all of the standard features, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, backup camera, panoramic sunroof, a 10-speaker sound system, and more.

Moving up a level, we get to Premium Plus. This package includes the standard features while also bringing in 18-inch wheels, an eight-way power seats with lumbar, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, keyless ignition and entry, parking sensors, smartphone integration, revised bumpers, side sill extensions, illuminated aluminum front door sills, and still more.

Once we get to Prestige, things get really fun: power-folding mirrors, LED headlights, an expanded Virtual Cockpit, navigation, a Band & Olufsen premium audio system, adaptive cruise, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, 12 way power front seats including four way power lumbar adjustment- the list goes on and on.

Fortunately for those who want more features without upgrading to an entirely different package, many of the features in Premium Plus and Prestige can be individually obtained.

There truly isn't much to dislike about the Audi A3. It feels fast, it's fun to drive, feels (and is!) safe, looks sporty and aggressive, gets good gas mileage, and has a long list of features that are hard to beat. And, you know, it's an Audi.
