Audi improves upon its capable entry-level A3 sedan with an all-new 2022 model featuring sleek exterior styling, a more refined, driver-focused interior, and technology upgrades that are already standard on larger and more expensive Audis.
Among them are an optional configurable 12.3-inch instrument cluster--known in Audi parlance as the "virtual cockpit"--and active driver assistance features.
The new-for-2022 A3 and its sporty S3 counterpart have larger interior and exterior dimensions than the previous iteration.
The S3 augments its more staid A3 sibling with a lower stance, a more powerful engine, bigger, vented front brakes and vented rear brakes, and Audi’s adaptive sport suspension system.
Both the A3 and S3 will come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and will be available in the U.S.
only as a four-door sedan.
