Audi’s baby sedan just got a sizable update that you’re going to like.

Audi has just introduced the next-gen, 2021 A3 Sedan, and with it comes a new, sporty exterior appearance with a revised grille, new exterior lights, and more aggressive body lines. The interior is now more driver-focused than ever and now features a more angular appearance than ever before. There’s an updated 10.1-inch MMI infotainment system and a revised 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster (Audi digital cockpit) that has three different views to choose from. The interior now features a little extra headroom up front thanks to the lower seat position and Car-to-X services are available in areas adequately equipped. The new A3 is offered with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline or diesel engine. Both engines provide 150 horsepower, but the diesel delivers 265.5 pound-feet while the gasoline puts down just 184.4 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy ranges between 47 and 50 mpg on the gasoline model and 60-65 mpg for the diesel, based on the current European scale, so don’t expect that much in the States. Pricing starts that EUR 27,700 or $30,006 at current exchange rates.
