The new Audi A3 will get either a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen or maybe a larger 12.3-inch unit. The new A3 refrains from the brand’s new dual-screen that makes climate controls and vehicle driving-mode switches a digital affair. Instead, those secondary techs are controlled here by good old-fashioned buttons. Audi’s digital Virtual Cockpit gauge display will also be standard.
