A3 is the first in its segment with MMI® technology, Audi drive select, 4G LTE connectivity and Bang & Olufsen® audio. Power for the sedan comes from a 1.8 TFSI®, 2.0 TFSI®, 2.0 TDI® clean diesel, and a high-output 2.0 TFSI® offered in the S3. Audi quattro® all-wheel drive distributes power to the wheels that need it most. Engines are mated to the standard 6-speed S tronic® transmission.
