Audi is refreshing its A3 Sportback e-tron plug-in hybrid for 2017 with expanded technology features such as its virtual dashboard, rear-view camera, Apple CarPlay, and forward automatic braking.

The A3 Sportback e-tron continues to be powered by a 1.4L TSFI gasoline engine paired with an electric motor that produces 205 hp and 258 lb.ft- of torque. Audi introduced the plug-in hybrid for the 2016 model year.

The A3 Sportback e-tron will retail for $39,850 for the Premium, $42,950 for the Premium Plus, and $48,500 for the Prestige.

Since its introduction, the A3 Sportback e-tron has made up 13% of A3 sales, according to Audi.
