2015 Audi A3: Plenty of Rear Passenger Space
December 30, 2014
Even though the 2015 Audi A3 is the smallest sedan in the company's range, it still offers a surprisingly roomy rear seat. In fact, one look at the official specs reveals some surprising numbers.
According to Audi, the A3 offers 35.1 inches of rear seat legroom. A meaningless number until you consider that the Audi A4, which has a nearly 7-inch longer wheelbase only has 35.2 inches of legroom.
Give credit to Audi for some impressive packaging. The A3 is built on the company's latest architecture known internally as MQB. It's also used for our VW GTI and will underpin dozens of vehicles under the Volkswagen corporate umbrella in the coming years. If the A3, and the GTI for that matter, are any indication, we should see some pretty competitive products coming out of Ingolstadt and Wolfsburg in the coming years.
