Sedans are sailing in serious headwinds these days, but Audi isn’t ready to give up. The second-generation 2021 Audi A3 is here with a more aggressive look and a load of tech designed to draw your eye away from all the SUVs in the room.
You’ll immediately recognize Audi’s smallest, least-expensive sedan; its look is more evolutionary than revolutionary, but it’s undeniably more assertive with far more lines than curves in its sheetmetal. They’re most obvious up front, but don’t miss the deeply sculpted sides and the Radwood-worthy Audi logo on the rear doors, an ’80s brand throwback. Audi designers also looked to draw out the roofline slightly and tighten up the rear end to give the A3 sedan a little more of that four-door coupe look that’s in vogue.
