The A3 is captivating from the moment you lay eyes on its sculpted exterior, which has been crafted to be both aerodynamic and beautiful. The front is unmistakably Audi, featuring the characteristic large grille framed with chrome alongside angular headlamps. The roof-line curves over to a sporty rear spoiler, and this is joined by modern tail-lights and a robust protective bumper inlay.
The comfortable cabin adds to the A3's sense of elegance, and has been constructed using the finest materials available. This includes a soft-touch dashboard and centre console holding micrometallic silver inlays, and leather upholstery is available with selected models. The vehicle's compact shape doesn't compromise on head and legroom, and split folding 60/40 rear seats mean longer items can be carried even with two passengers in the back.
As expected from any Audi, the cabin is home to sophisticated equipment designed around you and your passengers. The electrically extending 5.8-inch colour display screen is the centrepiece of this, as it projects infotainment details clearly to all occupants. The Audi Music Interface (AMI) leads the A3's audio delivery, and calls can be received hands-free using the integrated Bluetooth® interface.
Additional advancements are found when you explore the A3's powertrains, which on the entry level SE include 1.2 and 1.4-litre TFSI engines. Drive is sent through a six-speed or S tronic gearbox for responsive changes, and CO2 emissions start from as low as 109g/km. In both 138bhp 1.4-litre models, fuel economy is an impressive 60.1mpg for fuel savings.
Not only are the A3's engines remarkably well made, but so too its entire frame, with the award of a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating evidence of this. Audi's Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) combines multiple active systems to keep your vehicle stable on challenging road surfaces, while technical packages of Pre Sense and secondary-collision brake assist help you avoid collisions.
