In case you didn’t hear, last Thursday the all-new 2015 Audi A3 was declared World Car of the Year, at the New York Auto Show. This coming on the heels of being named Top Safety Pick, the highest award given for safety, by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Audi A3 was among the BMW 4-Series and everyone’s favorite underdog, Mazda3, vying for the top car award in New York.
The jurors said, “It might borrow styling hints from its bigger brothers, but the A3 still offers classic, chiseled contours and even better interior trim levels. With a superb choice of engines and four body styles, the Audi A3 range packs a hefty premium punch in the small luxury segment. Audi should be complimented for making this A3 ride like no other A3. All the old shimmer over rough surfaces has gone, replaced by a silky-smooth ride that approaches limousine quality.”
The 2015 Audi A3 has been lauded for keeping with the brand’s reputation for technical prowess and elegant styling. With its state-of-the-art lightweight technology, world-class drivetrain and superb interior, the A3 will make your heart skip a beat while seated in the cockpit. Other technical achievements come in the form of the mobile infotainment and driver’s assistance systems making the A3 seem like a much larger luxury car than it is.
Targeting the entry level luxury buyers, the 2015 Audi A3 can’t help but strike fear into the BMW 2-Series and the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The A3 is a statement car for Audi with its classy, understated design, luxurious amenities and an impeccable driving experience and we’re fairly confident it’s not done winning awards yet. So, you can wait for it to win more awards or you could come take one for drive while you still can at Carousel Motors of Iowa City.
