Car and Driver

Audi rolls out the red carpet for customization with a variety of standard and optional packages available on the 2009 Audi A3. Options include Bluetooth, a navigation system, Sirius Satellite Radio, and an iPod integration kit.

According to Edmunds, the S-line package includes features such as "sport-tuned suspension, foglamps, sport seats with leather upholstery, aluminum interior trim, unique front and rear fascias and a roof spoiler."

ConsumerGuide reports that the A3 Audi package includes "leather upholstery, power driver seat w/power lumbar adjustment, sport leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, steering wheel shift paddles (automatic), aluminum exterior trim, additional interior lights, illuminated visor mirrors, fog lights, (and) unique alloy wheels."

Cars.com lists "dual-exhaust outlets" and "alloy wheels" with "17-inch tires" as attractive standard features. Kelley Blue Book lists singular additions, such as "SIRIUS Satellite Radio, 18-inch alloy wheels," and "Bose audio." In regard to stand-alone upgrades, ForbesAutos claims "a navigation system heads up a fairly short options list."

Edmunds says of the A3's interior “switches and dials on the center console are within easy reach and simple to operate, but we were not fans of the driver-side door controls.” Cars.com likes the A3 Audi’s standard "dual-zone automatic climate control" and "'OpenSky' glass sunroof" that "includes separate blinds to keep the interior from overheating and to guard against the sun's glare." Kelley Blue Book calls the 140-watt stereo with 10 speakers and pre-wired satellite radio preparation for Sirius Satellite Radio "notable standard equipment."

Conclusion

The options list for the 2009 Audi A3 is short, but fortunately standard features are aplenty.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
