2019 Audi A3 vs. The Competition

The Audi trademark quattro® all-wheel drive technology is available on the A3 Sedan. The system has a variable torque split that can intuitively distribute power to where it's needed, helping to enhance performance and traction as road conditions demand. At the heart of the 2019 Audi A3 Sedan lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® engine that churns out 184 horsepower and 222 lb-ft of torque, going from 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds. An available quattro® all-wheel drive model ups the ante of acceleration, zipping from 0-60 mph in just 5.4 seconds thanks to a more robust 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the A3 family brings added performance to its compact silhouette. See how the 2019 Audi A3 stacks up to the competition.

Secondary Collision Brake Assist

The A3 Sedan has a standard Secondary Collision Brake Assist, which automatically applies the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries. The competition doesn't offer a post collision braking system: in the event of a collision that triggers the airbags, more collisions are possible without the protection of airbags that may have already deployed.
