The Audi A3 subcompact luxury sedan serves as the entry point to the German brand’s lineup and as the basis for the sporty S3 and performance-oriented RS 3 variants. So, how much can shoppers expect to pay for a new A3, at its base and top trim level variants? Here’s how much a fully loaded 2024 Audi A3 costs.

The 2024 Audi A3 starts at $35,400 MSRP

The 2024 Audi A3 is available in two trims, Premium and Premium Plus, with pricing for the Premium model carrying over from 2023 at $35,400 MSRP.

The A3 was fully redesigned for the 2022 model year, and as such, the 2024 model sees limited updates and only for optional packages. The Convenience Package’s HomeLink system is now integrated into the rearview mirror, and new 18-inch wheels are offered in the Black Optic Package.

All A3 models are powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine delivering 201 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque paired with an S-tonic seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system is available for both trim levels.

As standard, the A3 Premium model is fitted with leather upholstery, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a digital gauge cluster, keyless ignition, power-adjustable front seats, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Connectivity includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility through a 10.1-inch touchscreen.

The A3 Premium rides on 17-inch wheels with LED headlights and running lights. Additionally, all models have standard automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning.

The 2024 A3 Premium Plus starts at $39,000

The 2024 Audi A3 Premium Plus is the top trim of the lineup, with prices starting at $39,000 MSRP. The $3,600 price hike nets buyers a host of added creature comforts and driver’s aids.

Premium Plus models are fitted as standard with driver’s seat memory settings, keyless entry, gray wood interior trim, LED interior lighting, and a wireless charging pad. The top model also sports adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, an automatic parking system, and lane-keep assist.

Options and accessories for the 2024 Audi A3

Unlike most German luxury models on the market, the 2024 Audi A3 is offered with limited optional packages and accessories.

Opting for all-wheel drive is a $2,000 upgrade for the 2024 A3, no matter the trim selected.

Two exterior paint colors, Brilliant Black and Ibis White, are standard, while five other hues are available for an additional $595.

The Black Optic Sport Package is offered in both trims and includes 18-inch wheels finished in graphite gray, a sport suspension, all-season tires, and black exterior trim pieces for $1,550.

The Convenience Package ($2,100) is available for the Premium model. It includes many of the same tech features of the Premium Plus model, including keyless entry, HomeLink, a wireless charging pad, SiriusXM radio, driver’s seat memory, and more.

Premium Plus A3s can be fitted with Technology Package for an additional $2,000. It includes navigation, a Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, traffic sign recognition, and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit Plus with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

A fully loaded 2024 Audi A3 Premium Plus Quattro S tronic with optional paint, the Black Optic package and Technology package carries an MSRP of $46,240, a little over $11,000 more than the base model.
