The A3 2025 allstreet comes standard with 17-inch wheels, with the option to upgrade to 18-inch and 19-inch wheels for a more personalized look.

Here, Audi went for a warmer and inviting ambiance. For the 2025 Audi A3’s cabin, Audi offers a decorative fabric inlay made from 100% recycled polyester.

Audi has also redesigned the center console of the A3, introducing an adjustable armrest for added comfort during long drives. The relocation of speakers as part of the optional Sonos sound system ensures optimal audio performance. 

New 10.1-inch Infotainment System

One of the standard features of the 2025 Audi A3’s interior is the 10.1-inch infotainment display. It’s not just a fashion piece, though. The infotainment system is one of the latest technology features in the 2025 A3. The A3’s infotainment system provides intuitive access to navigation, entertainment, and connectivity features. And if it’s as good as the one inside the Audi Q3, then it’s user-friendly and feature-rich. As a connectivity hub, the infotainment system comes with four USB-C charging ports. 

Added Convenience Via MyAudi Mobile App

In select markets like the UK, Audi offers additional convenience features through the myAudi app. 

Using the MyAudi App, users can add adaptive cruise control and high-beam assistance via subscription-based services. You can pick the service you want to subscribe to. The choice is yours. 

Good Set of Standard Safety Features

The 2025 Audi A3 offers a diverse range of powertrain options. 

European markets will initially have access to the 35 TFSI variants of the Audi A3 with a 148-horsepower 1.5-liter mild-hybrid petrol engine. This 1.5-liter 35 TFSI engine pairs with a seven-speed S tronic transmission. Buyers can also have the 2025 Audi A3 with a six-speed manual transmission.

The 2025 A3 Vs Competition 

As mentioned, the 2025 Audi A3 goes up against the Mercedes-Benz CLA and BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. 

The Mercedes-Benz CLA, despite its recent face-lift, lags in ride comfort and powertrain efficiency compared to the refined A3.
