2023 Audi A3 Specification: An Overview

If you hope that the 2023 Audi A3 will be an SUV, you are wrong. It remains a sub-compact sedan, which in its 2023 release it is said to not offer a major makeover.

The carmaker itself doesn’t say bluntly about this, but the design, engine, as well as other aspects of this car, are predicted not to change much when compared to the previous release.

However, it doesn’t mean the car has lots of drawbacks. It remains a car with a high-tech interior. It also offers a powerful engine. Yet its compact design, when compared to the competitors, will be a lacking thing even if it is compared to the similar sub-compact sedan.

What’s New from the Car

Wondering what’s new from this car? Well, despite it being a carry-over design from the previous release, the carmaker is said to still offer something new on this car lineup. This will include full LED headlights and taillights, a sportier body, as well as faux leather armrests in the A3 40 model.

While for the A3 Premium Plus trim, offers not only a new LED Lighting Plus package but as well as a cool birch wood inlay.

The Car’s Performance

Talking about the car’s performance, we should not go far from the talk of its engine. The 2023 Audi A3 is using a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-L Volkswagen E888 engine. This is what is used in many cars, including the Volkswagen Passat as well as in a Porsche Macan.

The power plant is capable of producing around 184 HP and the car’s power will be distributed to its front wheels. There is an AWD version of A3, called Quattro trim, which interestingly is equipped with a mild hybrid option. If you choose this trim, then you will be able to get this Audi car to produce around 201 HP with 221 lb.-ft. of torque.

The transmission of all of the car trims will be paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission. This will enable the driver to drive easily while enjoying the lux this carmaker provides.

Interestingly, the 2023 Audi A3 sedan is said to have a better fuel economy in this upcoming release. Depending on the car’s drive type, the 2022-version of this car’s fuel economy is around 28-29/36-38 miles per gallon. For its 2023 version, we believe that the car will offer better fuel economy.

Interior Aspect

The car may be a subcompact sedan, but when compared to its predecessor, the cargo space is notably larger. Unfortunately, this good side doesn’t mean much when you compare the cargo space to the car’s competitors, namely the Mercedes CLA-class or BMW 2 series coupe–all released in 2022.

You may not file your complaint when it comes to the seating materials. Sources mentioned that the car’s interior aspect speaks a lot about class despite the car’s state of being a subcompact sedan. Minimalism can also be seen in the car’s interior, which interestingly comes in the form of fewer buttons used on the car’s dashboard.

The techs related to the infotainment system may not be that much different than any other competitors out there. The car has a large digital gauge system sized 10.3-inch, which is pretty helpful when you drive and this is a standard. The car is also equipped with a 10.1-inch touchscreen which is currently integrated with Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay.

It is said that in 2023, Audi is offering a wireless charging pad in all cars of the carmaker. If this comes as a standard feature for the Audi A3, it makes the interior aspect more interesting as it is not only available in higher trims.

Talking about higher trims of the 2023 Audi A3, you will be able to get a bigger instrument cluster that is digital (sized 12.3-inch), a Wi-Fi hotspot, built-in navigation, and 15-speaker audio system from Bang & Olufsen.
