2023 Audi A3 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2023 Audi A3?

The Audi A3 is Audi’s smallest and least expensive sedan, but you might not know it from behind the wheel. This little Audi four-door is fun to drive, with sharp steering and an eager 201-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. Front-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission are standard, with all-wheel drive optional (it’s standard on the zestier 306-hp S3 version). If you want even more thrills from Audi’s petite sedan, the RS 3 boasts a 410-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder that rockets from 0-60 mph in roughly 3.6 seconds. Competitors of the A3/S3/RS 3 include the Acura Integra, BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe, Cadillac CT4 and Genesis G70. 

What’s New on the 2023 Audi A3?

After a 2022 redesign, the A3 enters 2023 with only minor updates. Every A3 is now equipped with LED headlights and upgraded armrests, and the range-topping Prestige trim has been dropped. Adaptive cruise control is now a stand-alone option on the base A3 and S3.

What Features in the 2023 Audi A3 Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • 10.1-inch touchscreen
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Tri-zone climate control
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Leather seating surfaces
  • Panoramic moonroof
  • Heated front seats
  • Power-adjustable front seats

Available features include:

  • Wireless smartphone charging
  • Blind spot warning
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Satellite radio
  • Navigation
  • 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster
  • Head-up instrument display
  • Sport exhaust system

Should I Buy the 2023 Audi A3?

The A3 is a small, well-rounded luxury sedan that’s a zippy little runabout — or a pint-sized performance monster if you opt for the RS 3. Keep in mind, though, that version carries a hefty asking price of around $62,000. Space up front is decent, and the dash design is attractive. Adults relegated to the backseat, however, won’t want to be back there for extended voyages. The trunk is also modest, though many car shoppers will appreciate the A3’s city-friendly proportions, as well as the entry-level trim’s fuel-sipping nature.
