2011 AUDI A3

In 2011, the choice of a robust 2.0 TFSI engine alongside the remarkably efficient 2.0 TDI continues to cement the class-leading position of the Audi A3.
The turbocharged TDI clean-diesel engine delivers the power and drivability that luxury owners demand while offering unprecedented fuel economy and low emissions, and the gasoline-powered Audi A3 brings a pure, sporting character to the segment.
The 2011 Audi A3 maintains its sporty DNA, with S line exterior upgrades standard on all models and available quattro all-wheel drive.
The 2011 Audi A3’s leaning hood and fenders are expressively styled, and the bumper keeps its large, easily identifiable Singleframe radiator grille. In 2011, two new paint colors make their debut — Scuba Blue and Deep Sea Blue.
Buyers can opt for dark brown walnut wood interior details or the Piano Black motif of the Titanium Package in lieu of the standard Aluminum Medial inlays. Whatever the choice, fine materials abound, giving the Audi A3 an elegant, luxurious feel.
The Audi A3 has easy-to-read instruments with black dials and red needles, and a shift indicator displays the recommended gear in any given circumstance in the driver information system — a nod to the important role of the driver in efficiency.
The 2011 Audi A3 offers a choice of two technologically advanced engines. The first is a 2.0 TFSI engine with 200 hp and 207 lb.-ft. of torque that achieves up to 21/30 mpg (city/hwy) in front-wheel drive configuration.
Audi’s 2.0 TDI clean-diesel engine delivers 140 hp and 236 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2.0 TDI can yield 30 mpg in the city and an unmatched 42 mpg on the highway, while still maintaining a ULEV-II emissions rating.
Base model estimated mpg: 21/30
Estimated starting price: $27,270
