The 2025 Audi A3 is getting a mid-cycle facelift that includes a variety of design and technology improvements. 

Before we get started, keep in mind that Audi has just introduced the new-

A3 for Europe and has yet to provide specifications for the United States.

In terms of design, the images provide a good representation of what we might expect.

It has a new frameless grille that seems broader and flatter.

While the headlights appear to be the same as before, Audi has a surprise for you: customized daytime running light signatures.

Audi's infotainment system has four alternative styles. The improvements include a new rear bumper and a reworked lower valance.

A new shifter design replaces the previous Porsche-like nub with a chunkier sliding component that lies nearly flush with the central console.

The air vents are new as is the ornamental cloth on the dash and the 30-color ambient lighting found throughout the cabin. 

The most striking new lighting feature is a new illuminated front door. The audio upgrade will include a-

new Sonos 3D sound system, but that's all there is in terms of new technology within the cabin.

Powertrain choices for the United States were not initially disclosed (it is now powered by a 2.0-liter turbo producing 201 horsepower),

but Audi says Europe will have the option of a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mild hybrid or a diesel vehicle.

A PHEV is rumored to be released at a later date. Audi is also releasing a raised version of the-

Sportback model (not marketed in the United States) to Europe, dubbed the "Allstreet." 

The new A3 is currently on sale in Europe, but we'll have to wait for U.S.-specific details to get-

a comprehensive picture of the refresh and hear about new pricing/availability.
