The Audi A3 has instant appeal to today's car shoppers in San Diego. The A3 has been available since 1996, and the 2019 and 2020 model years are both included in the third generation. Notably, the 2020 A3 will be the last model year for the current generation. Today's A3 is the perfect image of modern refinement and superior athleticism. The Audi A3 for 2019 and 2020 have interesting similarities, and the 2020 model year has a few changes that you should be aware of before you pick out your new car from Audi San Diego.


The performance capabilities for the 2020 Audi A3 are mostly unchanged from the 2019 model year. Its primary powertrain is a TFSI 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter gas engine that will impress you with 184 horsepower. If you crave more power, you can choose the S-Line alternative to enjoy 228 horsepower. For both model years, the A3 is outfitted with front MacPherson struts, Quattro all-wheel drive, a 4-link suspension in the rear, and other equipment. A critical update to the 2020 model is that selectable driving modes are now standard equipment.


Several updates have been made to the 2020 Audi A3 from a cosmetic standpoint.

The cabriolet or convertible version of the A3 and the top-of-the-line Prestige trim are no longer available. The standard wheel size for the 2019 A3 is 17 inches, and this grows to 18 inches for the 2020 A3. The profile and overall exterior style are unchanged between the model years. If you take home the 2020 Audi A3 Premium or Premium Plus, you can choose to add puddle lamps with the Audi emblem to your car's exterior.
