2015 Audi A3: Clean Climate Controls

November 20, 2014

2015 Audi A3

This should hardly be worth mentioning in a modern luxury car. I'm talking about simple, easy-to-use climate controls that can be used at a glance. Seems obvious, but plenty of cars get it wrong. Our 2015 Audi A3 is not one of them.

This slim panel in the middle of the dash has all you need to get comfortable, and it takes all of a minute to figure everything out. Hard buttons for the vents? Check. Dials for the temperature and fan? Check. An "auto" button for people who like that kind of thing? Check.

In addition to the simplicity, those dials have a hefty, high-quality feel to them. Even the buttons work with a satisfying click. It would be a nice setup for any luxury car. The fact that it's on Audi's least expensive sedan makes it all the more impressive.
