What's New for 2018?

The Audi A3 boasts a new high-performance model for 2018. The RS 3 version gets an incredible 400 horsepower thanks to its turbocharged five-cylinder engine.

In addition, new features on the base model include dual USB ports and heated front seats.

The Premium Plus trim benefits from additional standard safety tech this year, including blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Trims and Features

The 2018 Audi A3 is appointed with standard leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, and high-quality materials like aluminum trim. Cargo space varies by body style: the sedan has 12.3 cubic feet of cargo space, 13.6 cubic feet for the hatchback, and 10 cubic feet if you either choose the convertible or opt for all-wheel drive in one of the other configurations. The 7-inch infotainment screen is equipped with two USB ports, a rearview camera, and a 10-speaker stereo.

Performance

The 2018 Audi A3 offers drivers several engine options. First, you have the 2.0-liter turbo-four, which provides 186 horses. It's combined with front-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Choose Quattro all-wheel drive to boost the performance rating to 220 hp; this configuration comes with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. The S3 trim has a tuned version of the turbo-four that boosts output to 292 horses. The A3 even comes in a plug-in hybrid version that produces 204 horses and the equivalent of 83 miles per gallon, with a 16-mile range on a single charge. Even the gas engines provide outstanding fuel economy; you'll get an EPA-estimated 26/35 city/highway mpg with the base engine.

Safety

Although crash test data for the 2018 Audi A3 has not yet been released, it is expected to meet or exceed the stellar performance of other models in this generation. The A3 has long been designated as a Top Safety Pick+ of the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety and earned a five-star overall rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration.

All 2018 Audi A3 models are equipped with advanced driver assistance tech including front collision warning and brake assist, a system that prepares the car for an imminent collision, a rearview camera, and automatic rain-sensing wipers and headlights. Additional features are available in specific trims.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of an Audi A3:

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base Audi A3 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)

Note: All Audi A3 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
