OREANDA-NEWS Two versions will be updated this year: the A3 Sport with front-wheel drive and the A3 S with all-wheel drive. Changes in the Premium trim for these models are being postponed, but an anti-theft system with a new motion sensor has been installed. The innovations in the Premium Plus option are more extensive, because it includes a Bang & Olufsen audio system, high beam support system and a hidden panel of USB ports for charging.

With the new generation of the A3 model, which will be presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi has installed the new Final Edition package for the current model. This package includes leather front sports seats with contrasting stitching and a flat steering wheel with switches. The package also includes Audi Beam Ring taillights.

The changes are completed by the A3 Cabriolet and the sporty A3 S line quattro, which is equipped with the S line body kit, aluminum door sills and 18-inch wheels. The S3 gets new premium trim levels starting at $43,000. Premium Plus returns to the lineup and includes high beam support, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, and auto-dimming side mirrors.
