Audi announced to be introducing some “Special Edition” variants to the 2016 A3 and A4 cars, which feature some “special” options.
For instance, the 2016 Audi A3 Special Edition starts off life as an S Line model and adds high-gloss black trim accents to the grille and front intakes on the exterior. And because it’s an S Line model, the A3 Special Edition gets sport-tuned suspension as standard, along with the choice of 18-inch or 19-inch wheels.
The 2016 Audi A4 Special Edition is similarly equipped, starting life as an A4 S-Line, while gaining some extra options and trimming bits. Heated front seats, rear-view camera, and parking sensors, as well as Audi’s latest MMI infotainment system with sat-nav are standard, along with a moonroof, leather seats, and xenon headlights.
Power can be provided by the choice of either a 1.8L or 2.0L TFSI four-banger for the A3, while the A4 gets the 2.0L TFSI four only with 220hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
