One such model is the Audi A3, one of the brand's most sought-after compact luxury sedans. The changeover from the 2016 to 2017 model years has seen some major design and engineering overhauls for this nameplate, and many Audi fans are wondering what's new for the new model year? Well folks, we here at Audi Fort Lauderdale have a keen eye for picking out Audi's latest innovations, and we've put together a quick breakdown to show you all that's new for the 2017 Audi A3.

Powertrain updates

As we said before, exhilaration is always on the menu when it comes to Audi's driving experiences, and happily, the 2017 Audi A3 is no exception. But while the 2016 Audi A3 featured three different engine options, the 2017 model features a more streamlined powertrain. Equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the 2017 Audi A3 churns out an ample 186 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque when mated to its seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, also new this year for front-wheel drive models.

Aesthetics

Performance isn't the only thing that's been streamlined about the 2017 Audi A3, as its exterior design have also been given extra attention. Aiming to bring the 2017 Audi A3 more in line with the brand's design language, the Audi A3 receives some updates to its exterior styling, giving the sedan a sleek, athletic silhouette. However, those with a keen eye for automotive design will note the unmistakable hallmarks of an Audi vehicle remain fully intact with the 2017 Audi A3.

Driver-assistive features

In addition to its performance and styling upgrades, the 2017 Audi A3 also boasts some exceptional driver-assistive and convenience technologies to add to its allure. Perhaps the most impressive addition for this model year is the forward collision mitigation system that comes standard across the trim range, however the 2017 Audi A3 also features available rear cross-traffic alert, and an updated infotainment system with software refinements and an available USB port to boot.
