• Audi A3 Hatchback

Audi A3

The Audi A3 is made from a winning formula that has stood the test of time since its first launch in 1996 — but now, it’s up to date with the latest design and technology taking it a step beyond what is expected.

In a fast-changing world, you need a companion that is always ready for new challenges. With progressive design and innovative technologies such as Audi connect. That’s progress you can feel.

With a 10.1 inch screen, and optional heads up display that projects information onto the windshield, the virtual cockpit is wholly centered on the driver. Used for the first time, the A3 also features seats made from recycled PET bottles and stylish contrast stitching complimenting the winning A3 hatchback formula we all know and love.

“The A3 Sportback is possibly the most roundly talented posho-badged hatchback on the market right now. The BMW 1 Series is a sportier choice (but pays for that with a tougher ride and more road noise), and the Mercedes A-Class trails both by a distance, despite its tech-festooned dashboard. The Audi strikes a neat balance between fuss-free family transport, well-mannered refinement and managing to feel just a little keener in the chassis department than the old A3.

WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO₂ figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile. Figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. The most economical figures refer to the most efficient/lightest set of options. A vehicle’s actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.
