Trim level

S3 Black Edition
As well as all the goodies the S3 gets, the S3 Black Edition adds different 19in alloy wheels, a black styling pack, privacy glass, and a Bang &amp; Olufsen premium sound system.
Black Edition
Based on S line with all its features, this adds special 18in alloy wheels, a black styling pack, privacy glass, and the uprated Audi Sound system.
S3
The high-performance S3 is a model in its own right, with a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and acceleration times that wouldn’t disgrace many a supercar. It gets 19in alloy wheels, lowered and stiffened suspension, a revised steering set-up, full-leather upholstery, heated front seats, a bodykit and aluminium-look door mirrors as standard.
S Line
S line trim is focused on sporty looks; you get 18in wheels, a bodykit, xenon headlights and part-leather upholstery. It’s worth noting that you can specify a more comfortable suspension set-up for no extra cost; we’d certainly recommend it.
Our pick
Sport
The A3 Saloon’s entry-level trim has more than enough kit, with dual-zone climate control, 17in alloys, DAB radio, a 5.8in colour screen, Bluetooth, a USB socket and a leather steering wheel complete with audio controls. It’s worth noting that you can specify a more comfortable suspension set-up for no extra cost; we’d certainly recommend it. We’d also pay extra for rear parking sensors.
