Are you a luxury car enthusiast? And are you a lover of Audis, in particular? If so, then Christmas may be coming a couple months early this year. It’s just been announced that the 2017 Audi A3 will hit retail in October. You can get all the details from a report over at Audi USA.
How Much Will the New Audi Cost?
While not everything is yet known about the new lineup of Audi vehicles, the company has made a partial pricing structure available. Here’s what we can tell you thus far:
The 2017 Audi A3 sedan with quattro all-wheel-drive will be available for $35,150 if you get the “Premium” model. An all-wheel drive model, with all the bells and whistles, will be available for $44,100.
Are convertibles your thing? Note that the 2017 Audi A3 Cabriolet will sell for $41,250 (starting price) and tops out at $50,200 for the “Prestige” version.
Finally, the 2017 Audi A3 performance sedan will start at $43,850 for the “Premium Plus” version. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line “Prestige” model is priced at $49,350.
For each of these 2017 Audi A3 vehicles, a one-time $950 destination charge will also be required.
More Information About the 2017 Audi A3
There’s more to the A3 lineup then what we’ve mentioned here, though for the additional models, information is a little bit spottier. For example, the A3 with front-wheel drive, as well as the Sportback E-3 model, will also be available in updated forms, though Audi has not yet announced the pricing information for these vehicles.
As for the updates made to the new Audis, they seem tasteful and restrained. Audi isn’t remaking these cars from scratch, but rather is taking everything drivers love about them, refining them a bit, and adding a few new features. All of these new vehicles will include “Audi Pre Sense Front, a radar-based system that provides forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking,” the Edmunds article reports. Smartphone integration, rear cross-traffic assist, Audi virtual cockpit, and MMI touch are among the optional features that consumers can spring for.
Some other features that will be available for all of these models include LED taillights, power sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and beyond. Some minor adjustments to the exterior design of the sedan, convertible, and S3 have also been promised.
A Good Time to Buy a Luxury Vehicle
Audi has long been known for providing a superior luxury experience for an affordable price- and it looks like the revamped A3 lineup fits into this tradition. For those who have always loved Audi, this is a no-brainer. We would add that these new vehicles will also be good options for those buying their very first luxury vehicle. If nothing else, it will be prudent to head to the Audi showroom this fall to check out these promising new offerings.
