Guess which compact Mercedes costs the same price?
First revealed back in March, Audi has today announced the 2015 A3 Sedan will be priced from $29,000 (+ $895 for shipping) when it hits showrooms early next spring. Serving as the entry point model in the US, the A3 Sedan will be followed by the pricier A3 Sportback, the S3 variant, and recently unveiled A3 Cabriolet. Priced almost identically to its key rival the Mercedes-Benz CLA250, the 2015 A3 offers plenty of style and value for money, as well as some decent features including a panoramic glass sunroof, bi-xenon headlights, LED DRLs, leather seats and Bluetooth connectivity.
A six-speed S tronic transmission with paddle shifters comes as standard, while options include Quattro all-wheel drive, a Bang & Olufsen stereo, and an MMI infotainment system with 4G LTE connectivity. Engine options include a 170-hp 1.8-liter TFSI, an unspecified 2.0-liter unit, and a 150-hp 2.0-liter TDI. The S3 will come with a 300-hp 2.0-liter TFSI engine.
