With the rise in demand for entry-level luxury sedans, Audi has decided to come up with better options for the consumers with the all new 2015 Audi A3 1.8T sedan. The car actually rivals other entry-level luxury vehicles like Mercedes Benz CLA250 and BMW 228i. Although, Audi was the first in the market to come up with the entry level luxury cars but the original A3 failed to make an impression. This time with 2015 Audi A3 1.8T the German automaker has decided to offer something better than expected.

The exterior styling of the vehicle is very unique and therefore it looks sporty and at the same time classy to appeal to young buyers. However, under the hood, it is powered by the 1.8 liter turbocharged I4 engine that produces 170 horsepower and 200 lb feet of torque. The engine is mated with six speed dual clutch automatic transmission that ensures superior performance. The sedan accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds which is certainly not the fastest in its class, but it still manages to offer a decent overall package. To make the driving experience better Audi has introduced lighter and more communicative steering wheels that makes handling smoother.

The interior of the car is minimalistic and therefore to many buyers it would look pale and cheap. It comes with the latest version of MMI that ensures smoother performance and navigation. It also offers decent interior space for the driver and the passengers as well making it a competitive vehicle in the near future. 2015 Audi A3 1.8T is available at a base price of $30,795 in the US market.
