What is the Audi A3 Technology Package?

The Audi A3 compact sedan has always been known in Charlotte to be an attractive way to drive a new luxury car without going for broke.

It’s a well-equipped entry level option in a market often known for over-exuberance and high price tags. While the A3 features a lot of the same equipment and materials that you'll find in its pricier A4 sibling, its lower starting price doesn't limit you to a minimalist lifestyle.

The best way to get the most for your money when buying or leasing a new Audi A3 is to opt for the Technology Package, which is available on both Premium and Premium Plus trim levels.

Read on to see exactly what the Tech Package offers, how much it costs, and why it's worth it to consider this essential set of accessories.

Tech Package Features

New for 2018, the Technology Package available on the new Audi A3 offers more than ever:

  • Audi connect PRIME & PLUS (6-month trial subscription)
  • MMI® Navigation plus with MMI® touch
  • Bang & Olufsen® Sound System
  • Audi virtual cockpit

Past model years typically covered only an upgraded MMI touch infotainment system in the Technology Package--but the 2018 model has significantly expanded what the package brings. When you opt for the package now, you'll get MMI touch system capabilities as well as MMI Navigation, which brings easy, step-by-step directions right into your cabin.

Also new for 2018 is a premium Bang & Olufsen® Sound System.

The Technology Package also includes Audi's stunning, state-of-the-art Virtual Cockpit, a 12.3-inch dynamic screen that can display 3D maps, vehicle information, data, and more, effortlessly toggling to provide you with the exact knowledge that you need.

The Audi A3 Technology Package costs approximately $3,200 to add onto a Premium or Premium Plus trim. These features and more come standard on the 2018 A3 Prestige, which starts at $40,700.
