2017 Audi A3 quattro

I drive the refreshed 2017 Audi A3 quattro. For 2017, all A3 models now include a 2.0L TFSI motor. There are also several new features ranging from Audi Virtual Cockpit to rear traffic alert and forward emergency braking. Prestige models now come standard with radar cruise control and lane keep assist.

Key differences to note are that the quattro (all-wheel-drive) version of the A3 includes the 6-speed S-tronic transmission and the more powerful 2.0L gasoline engine. The front-wheel-drive (FWD) A3 2.0L includes a 7-speed S-tronic transmission with less power than the quattro, but more power than the terminated 1.8L A3 from 2015-2016.
