Following our report in August regarding a new Audi A3 S Line Plus package, Audi Australia has now confirmed the model for the local market. It brings in a range of bonus features to increase overall value.
The A3 S Line Plus package is available for all body styles spanning from the sedan, Sportback hatch, and cabriolet. All receive 18-inch dynamic design alloy wheels, and the full S Line exterior trim package. Going for the Sportback adds LED headlights and taillights, while the sedan gets unique Audi Sport design wheels and a panoramic sunroof.
Inside, the cabrio comes with a convenience key, with the other two adding power front seats and auto-folding side mirrors. All feature the MMI Navigation plus user interface, with the Sportback and sedan also coming with wireless phone charging.
All up, Audi says that up to $11,000 in additional specification is included with the S Line Plus package on some models. For the buyer, it means increased value. The package could also help with resale value further down the track. Shawn Ticehurst, product planning and pricing director at Audi Australia, said:
“The improvement in value that these special editions now highlight Audi’s sporty nature perfectly, while upping the ante with a new level of infotainment, comfort and safety technology features that makes the A3 an even more compelling package.”
The special models are on sale in Australia now, with prices starting from the following (excluding on-road costs). Two different engines are available, including the 110kW/250Nm 1.4-litre turbo ’35 TFSI’ and the 140kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo ’40 TFSI’.
