Introducing the 2025 Audi A3 Sedan: Innovation at its Bes
2025 Audi A3 Sedan – The Audi A3 has been a popular choice among entry-level luxury car enthusiasts for its compact size, premium features, and spry handling. The fourth-generation A3 was introduced in May 2020 and is expected to continue until 2027. However, an updated version of the Audi A3 is already in the works, with prototypes spotted out testing. This updated A3 is anticipated to reach showrooms in 2024 as a 2025 model, with the U.S. market likely only receiving the sedan variant.
The 2025 Audi A3 will be based on an updated version of Volkswagen Group’s front-wheel-drive MQB modular platform, making it a twin under the skin to the latest Volkswagen Golf. The styling tweaks visible on prototypes are subtle, with revisions to the front fascia, new taillight graphics, and a revised design for the rear reflectors. Inside, the A3 will feature a more personality-driven design, with large air vents flanking the gauge display, available sports seats with faux-suede upholstery, and quilted seating surfaces.
Under the hood, the North American A3 is expected to offer a single engine choice: a 201-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a 48-volt hybrid system. Front-wheel drive will come standard, with all-wheel drive as an optional upgrade. A seven-speed automatic transmission will also be common. For those seeking more power, the S3 model will boast 306 horsepower.
Regarding infotainment and connectivity, the 2025 A3 will feature a 10.1-inch touchscreen on all models and a 10.3-inch digital gauge display, which can be upgraded to a larger 12.3-inch unit as part of the Technology package on the Premium Plus trim. This reconfigurable screen can display a large map, vehicle information, and standard gauges for speed and rpm.
Audi also has plans to launch an all-electric vehicle in each core segment by 2027, including an entry-level model positioned below the Q4 e-tron. This new entry-level EV will be similar in size to the Audi A3 compact hatchback and will effectively replace the current A3 as Audi aims to launch only EVs from 2026. By 2025, Audi intends to debut at least ten new electric cars out of 20 new vehicles.
