Audi A3 2.0 TFSI Quattro 2016 Review | Snapshot


For what seems a more modest jump in price, you can have the same 2.0 TFSI as the sport spec but with Quattro all-wheel drive. Prices start at $49,500 for the Sportback, $51,100 for the Sedan and $58,600 for the Cabriolet.

The Quattro drivetrain knocks about half a second off the front-wheel drive's 0-100km/h time while consumption is up about 0.3L/100km. You also get 18-inch alloys, sport suspension, LED headlights, taillights and daytime running lights; dynamic scrolling indicators, turning lights, motorway light function (it's worth noting that the matrix LED option is $1300 for the Quattro rather than $2800 in lesser version). The S-Line package is also available only on the Quattro.

With all-wheel drive and sport suspension, the Quattro is by far the most fun to drive, with a lot more grip and a sharper front end, without ruining the ride of the softer-sprung lower models.

The 2.0 TFSI Quattro is the fastest and best-equipped A3 beneath the genuinely hot S3 models.
