2015 Audi A3
2015 Audi A3

Audi will bring its popular A3 to the U.S. market in early 2014. Redesigned for the American market, the 2015 Audi A3 will be offered as a sedan and a five-door Sportback. The sedan model will be available with four engines -- three gasoline power plants, including a high-performance model that will be called the S3, and a clean-diesel engine.

The A3 Sportback will come only as a plug-in gasoline electric hybrid, a first for Audi in the U.S. All engines will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with manual capability.

Like the higher-priced Audis, the new A3 will feature Audi drive select, which allows the driver to select from four settings to customize the overall driving experience, including shift points, steering feel and throttle response. The 2015 Audi A3 will come standard with leather upholstery, Bluetooth hands-free technology, rain-sensing wipers and a panoramic sunroof.
