The 2015 Audi  A3 has finally arrived at Audi of Tucson and the vehicle offers the perfect balance between luxury and technology. The four-door vehicle includes a two-door cabriolet, a Q3 crossover, and for the 2015 model, Audi has included an A3 e-tron five-door plug-in hybrid version. This e-tron version will only be available in the U.S.

The A3’s front seats allow passengers to comfortably stretch out, while the back seat is spacious enough to fit three. The driver’s seat, however, was definitely made to give the driver the feeling of command and control. It features 12-way power adjustments and four-way power lumbar adjustment.  For an even more over-the-top experience, the sport package includes shift paddles, sport seats, the Audi Drive select system and throttle mapping.

If you like your music large and loud then you’re in luck, because Audi  gives customers the option of upgrading to the Bang & Olufsen surround-sound audio system. This sound system has 14 speakers and 705 watts, which is 200 more watts than the previous model.

The car is also a tech-lovers dream.  Audi, already famous for innovative headlight design, has built the A3 with full-LED headlamps. Other tech includes LED interior lighting, 4G LTE connectivity for Google Maps integration and anything else that can be paired with your smart phone.

The leather upholstery is standard on all A3 models and as are the rain-sensing wipers and sunroof. Audi has also added what they call a “phone box” that allows you to drop your phone in to the center bin under the armrest. Dropping your phone into the box will boost your cell signal by using an antenna inserted in the rear glass.

The base model for the A3 has a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and more than 180 lb-ft of torque. Also, there is the option in the new 2015 Audi A3 for the latest Volkswagen-family 2.0-liter diesel four that delivers about 150 horsepower. Both the 1.8-liter engine and the 2.0-liter diesel are paired with all-wheel drive. The transmission for all models is the same six-speed dual-clutch automatic.
