Audi A3 Pricing and Specs

2022 price from
$46,300*

The Audi A3 is available from $46,300 to $56,000 for the 2022 range of models in Sedan and Other body types.

If you had to describe the A3 to someone who knew nothing about Audis you’d probably start by referring to it as being a lot like Volkswagen Golf, which, funnily enough, it is. Audi is part of the giant Volkswagen Group (along with VW itself, plus Porsche, Skoda, Seat, Bentley, Bugatti and Lamborghini) and when it came time for the more premium German passenger car maker to launch a hatch, back in 1996, they had a handy template to start with. To make the A3 seem more sporty than the Golf - seen very much as a 'commoner’s' car in Europe - they initially gave it only three doors, but later versions grew to a more practical five.

With trim levels ranging from the A3 35 Tfsi Mhev to the A3 40 Tfsi Quattro, the Audi is, of course, nicer and plusher, and generally a bit zippier, than a Golf, although the gap has narrowed in recent years as VWs have become classier. Cynical types would point out that you’re buying the same basic product, however, for a much higher price ($46,300-$56,000), mainly for the sake of that four-ringed badge cache.
