Set to hit showrooms in April 2014, the Audi A3 is already making headlines for it uncompromising features.
The new 2015 Audi A3 is coming to the Audi Santa Barbara showroom this month. Excitement has been building for the debut of this entry-level luxury sedan with a base MSRP of $29,900. The A3 features new and innovative technologies, with the uncompromising craftsmanship that customers know from larger flagship Audi vehicles.
While budget friendly, this sedan does not cut corners and includes many standard features that others consider luxuries. Audi has joined forces with fearless trailblazers that are also refuse to compromise – entertainers, athletes, and Audi engineers all share the same passion for never cutting corners and refusing to settle for less than the best. The Audi A3 was designed on this very concept of this uncompromising nature.
The ever comical entertainer Ricky Gervais demonstrates the 4G LTE connectivity in the vehicle, which turns the A3 into a WiFi hotspot, in his 30-second TV spot. This allows celebrities and college grads to all stay in touch regardless where they are headed on the road.
The A3 marks the first time that an A-segment vehicle will offer MMI® technology. Celebrity chef and founder of Momofuku Restaurant Group David Chang demonstrates how he utilizes the pioneering MMI® touchpad by using his finger to write a letter to quickly find a contact and make a phone call. The innovative touchpad is incorporated into the rotary MMI control wheel yielding intuitive control for users.
Another luxury standard feature on the 2015 A3 is the Audi drive select option which allows you to change the handling and response at the touch of a button to suit how you want to drive. The five modes of Efficiency, Comfort, Dynamic, Auto, and Individual allow you to change your driving preferences from a more economical driving style, to a relaxing ride, or a sportier experience all while still behind the wheel of your A3.
“The A3 sedan doesn’t sacrifice design, technology, or performance while allowing first time luxury buyers to experience Audi craftsmanship” shares Duane Sanders, General Manager of Santa Barbara Auto Group. “The Audi quattro® all-wheel drive technology hugs corners and will surprise new drivers that this type of advanced technology is being offered on an entry-level luxury sedan.”
The Audi A3 is now on sale at Audi Santa Barbara and will be joined this fall by the Audi A3 Cabriolet, A3 TDI clean diesel sedan, the high-performance S3 sedan. Customers can also look forward to the A3 Sportback e-tron® gasoline electric plug-in hybrid (PHEV) which will be available in early 2015.
