Audi A3 Range

​Safety

Audi offers an excellent range of safety features on all versions of the A3 3-Door. Driver, passenger and front side airbags offer excellent all-round protection.

Meanwhile the active bonnet automatically creates more space between the bonnet and the engine in the event of contact with a pedestrian, reducing the risk of serious or fatal injury.

To help prevent such an occurrence, an array of intelligent active safety systems such as Anti-Slip Regulation, ABS, Electronic Differential Lock and the Electronic Stability Programme enable you to keep full control of the car in the most dangerous of circumstances.

​Design

A low roof, sculpted bonnet, pronounced character lines and body-coloured roof spoiler endow the A3 3-Door with the athleticism one would expect from an Audi.

Front foglights and 16-inch alloy wheels are standard equipment, and underline the assertive profile created by the sharp headlights, prominent grille and flared wheel arches.


The cabin is exquisitely crafted and notably user-friendly, with a clear and simple layout of dials and instruments and supportive, adjustable seats that allow drivers of any size to find their ideal driving position.

A leather-trimmed steering wheel and micrometallic silver inlays are examples of the fine detailing standard on even the entry-level SE specification.

Higher trim levels add a number of additional luxuries, such as a gear knob of perforated leather.

​Technology

The A3 3-Door is available with two petrol and two diesel engines, as well as a pliant MacPherson-strut/multi-link rear suspension and electromagnetic power steering for outstanding ride quality and steering precision.

The entry-level 1.2 litre, 110PS TSFI petrol engine with a six-speed manual transmission returns combined fuel economy of 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km, as well as a ready turn of pace that takes it from stationary to 62mph in 9.9 seconds.

The greater power of other petrol units make for even more impressive speed; the 1.8 litre TSFI Quattro powertrain can achieve 0-62mph acceleration in 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 141mph.


The diesels on offer give you still lower fuel consumption and carbon output – the figures for the 1.6 litre TDI ultra unit are most impressive of all at 88.3mpg and 89g/km (the latter figure being enough to exempt you from Vehicle Excise Duty).

Inside the A3 3-Door’s cabin, the Audi Music Interface gives you access to DAB radio and a CD player - Bluetooth with voice control is also standard equipment, along with air conditioning.

Higher specifications come with extras such as dual-zone climate control, a satellite navigation system, and a Driver’s Information System (DIS) with a high-resolution 3.5” TFT colour display.
