The Audi A3 and Q3 have been named to the 2015 KBB.com list. Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Best Luxury Cars under $35,000 list recognizes vehicles with exceptional standard equipment, fuel economy and performance.
“The 2015 A3 and Q3 raise the bar for what is to be expected in terms of standard performance and technology in the entry premium market,” said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. “This unwillingness to compromise on the amenities that drivers value most is reflected by the recognition from KBB.”
The 2015 A3 Sedan brings to the entry premium market new innovative technologies and the detailed craftsmanship found in larger flagship Audi sedans. The A3 features standard leather seating surfaces, ultra-thin retractable MMI® display, Panoramic sunroof and bi-xenon headlights. It is joined by the Audi A3 Cabriolet, A3 TDI clean diesel sedan and the high-performance S3 sedan.
The 2015 Q3 is a premium, compact SUV that pairs coupe-like looks with the utility of a SUV. Its quality engineering and advanced features offer strong performance and functionality, but also advanced technology and driving dynamics. Like the A3, the Q3 comes generously appointed with a long list of standard equipment, including a Panoramic sunroof with power retractable sunshade, Audi xenon plus front lighting with LED DRLs and taillights, and heated, 12-way power front seats. Q3 also comes standard with leather seating surfaces and LED interior lighting. Available features include quattro® permanent all-wheel drive, Audi side assist and Audi parking system with rearview camera and the award-winning Audi connect® infotainment system.
