Not everyone has a lifestyle that is suitable for a compact car. For those looking for more room, style, and reliability, the well to draw from may seem plentiful, but you may notice that many of the vehicles boast similar features. Who says that pre-owned sedans have to be boring?
Crossing out the previous hatchback style, this version has been fully redesigned. The 4-door body is smaller, more fuel efficient, and still keeps its performance features high. The Premium Plus provides conveniences such as keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone climate control, and Driver Assistance, which has a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, an automated parking system, and a blind-spot monitoring system to help prevent fender benders.
The infotainment system operates touch-screen navigation with voice controls and also utilizes Audi connect, which can sync up with WiFi hotspots. The A3 has a 1.8 TFSI 4-cylinder engine that produces 170 HP and 200 pounds of torque, making it a powerful force, according to Edmunds.
