2020 Audi A3

2020 A3 Photos
The Audi A3 is a compact luxury sedan that puts substance over flash. It offers many standard features, including automatic emergency braking. It's been a champ for a long time, and has aged well. The 2020 model is the final year of this generation, with a redesign planned for 2021, so the Cabriolet and top Prestige trims have been cut. That leaves the Premium and Premium Plus trims, although there's a one-time options package called Final Edition, which includes sport seats and some cosmetic bits for $800.

Among other things, the A3 is known for its strong, smooth acceleration from a brilliant 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that comes in two states of tune, for front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The front-drive version deserves raves for its impressive 30-mpg on regular gas, while the all-wheel-drive model earns praise for its excellent balance and grip.

The cabin wears standard leather upholstery and a power moonroof, and it's full of nice touches, including the 8.0-inch infotainment screen. A high-tech digital instrument panel is available. The cabin has a snug rear seat, with a smallish trunk.

With front-wheel drive, the 2020 A3 is rated by the EPA at 27 mpg city, 36 highway, 30 combined. Mileage falls with all-wheel drive to 22/30/25 mpg. Both versions run on regular fuel.

The A3's safety scores are strong. It earns five overall stars from the NHTSA and is designated as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. Automatic emergency braking is standard, while other options are available on the Premium Plus model. Those include blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control.
