About Audi A3:
The A3 distinguishes itself as a great-handling, handsome sedan (or convertible!) with an upscale interior and luxury features that set the standard for the segment. Steering is precise, the ride composed; fit and finish are superb. A 170-hp 1.8-liter turbo four with front-wheel drive and a six-speed auto are standard; a manual is not offered. A 220-hp 2.0-liter four with all-wheel drive is optional; 2015 and 2016 TDI diesels have been stop-saled until further notice due to EPA violations.
The key differentiators between the two automobiles are 186 cubic centimeters of displacement, a not-insignificant 50 horsepower and 58 lb-ft of torque, all-wheel traction, and $3000 in price. Both cars were equipped with the Premium Plus package, exactly the same wheels and tires, the sportiest suspension, and Audi’s lovely six-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic.
Along with the stronger engine comes standard Quattro all-wheel drive, and thus equipped, the A3 2.0T cab feels more like a car for a grown-up—less sorority girl and more graduated professional. The sport-tuned suspension (part of the $800 Sport package) is taut and the steering is wonderfully tactile, but 250 pounds of additional weight and all-season tires that felt slippery on the road played a role in reducing grip levels. The 3634-pound 2.0T returned a Toyota Corolla–like cornering figure of 0.82 g (0.04 lower than the 1.8T) before sliding off its line with mild understeer. The car’s braking performance was okay, at 174 feet, but that’s 8 feet longer than its sibling’s.
Although the cabriolet is nearly 300 pounds heavier than the 2015 A3 2.0 T sedan we tested, the droptop’s chassis is set up more or less the same. We think that fitting the A3 sedan’s Continental ContiSportContact summer tires would do wonders to liven up the droptop driving experience—the four-door stopped 18 feet shorter and pulled a seriously impressive 0.94 g on the skidpad.
