The A3 comes equipped with numerous cutting-edge safety features previously unavailable in the entry-level luxury market. The standard Audi pre-sense basic system, which can detect when an emergency maneuver is being made and prepare the vehicle for a collision, is included. Additionally, A3 owners can also opt for an advanced technology package with adaptive cruise control and active lane assist.
“We aren’t just bringing one new car to market, we’re launching an entire new family of cars that will add to our momentum in the U.S. marketplace,” said Scott Keogh, president of Audi of America. “This A3 line-up redefines the standards of the entry premium market in terms of technology, craftsmanship and performance."
