It also meets or exceeds all 50 states emissions requirements, producing 30 percent fewer CO2 emissions than a comparable gasoline engine.

The award-winning 2.0 TFSI engine provides 211 hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque and combines Audi valvelift system, variable valve timing and TFSI® direct injection for increased power and efficiency.

In the A3, form and function work seamlessly. Take the exterior for instance. The exhaust tips and surrounding rear diffuser create a sporty look, while the Sportback design with large rear hatch makes loading and unloading virtually effortless.
LED Daytime Running Lights
The signature LED daytime running lights not only add a distinct look to the vehicle, they also improve visibility while using half of the energy of conventional bulbs.
Designed for Versatility
Every aspect of the A3 blends sophisticated refinement with versatile utility. The luxurious interior is spacious enough to accommodate large-capacity loads up to 39 cu. ft., thanks to the 60/40 split-folding rear seats and five-door Sportback design.
Audi Music Interface
This connective technology offers intelligent integration with the iPod®. Any iPod® Generation 4 and higher may be connected through the glove box, providing full iPod® controls on the MMI® screen. This feature allows connection of a USB flash drive or a conventional auxiliary audio input as well.
Six Standard Airbags
The six standard, second-generation airbags provide an additional measure of safety. They include front-impact airbags for the driver and passenger and are designed to help protect the head. Seat-mounted, side-impact airbags for the front seat occupants are designed to help protect the thorax in a collision. And the side-curtain airbags offer front and rear occupants head protection in the event of a side collision or rollover.
