Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 2016 Audi A3 Premium. This third-generation subcompact executive sedan is presented in a four-door body style on the Volkswagen Group MQB platform and receives torque from a turbocharged 1.8-liter inline-four linked with an S tronic six-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle. Showing Arizona and California ownership since new, this A3 offers luxuries such as LED exterior lighting, a panoramic sunroof, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Finished in Florett Silver over a gray leather interior, this A3 is offered by the selling dealer with a clear title.
The Florett Silver exterior is complemented by LED daytime running lights, a panoramic sunroof, color-keyed door handles and mirror caps, LED taillights, and stainless-steel exhaust tips.
Cast aluminum 18-inch Audi Sport wheels are wrapped in 225/40-sized Pirelli tires.
The cabin is optioned with power-adjustable heated black leather buckets up front and a split-folding bench in the rear, matched to the door panels, dash, headliner, and carpeting. Amenities include Micro-metallic Silver trim, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, a digital infotainment screen, power windows, a 12-volt power outlet, tinted windows, and Bluetooth and XM connectivity.
Instrumentation is presented by a 160-mph speedometer, an 8K-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The digital odometer reads 111,120 miles, which is in line with the most recent odometer entry of 111,116 miles logged on the CARFAX report in February 2023.
The turbocharged 1.8-liter inline-four is directed-injected and was rated at 170 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque when new. Recent service includes an oil change in December 2022 and the replacement of the intake manifold gasket in January 2023. Power is fed to the front wheels via an S tronic six-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle.
Braking is handled by a four-wheel anti-lock disc braking system with ventilated front rotors. The suspension uses a MacPherson strut front end combined with a four-link rear end.
