The Audi A3 Sportback is about as eye-catching as they come. Its sleek, stylish, and sharp exterior would give any sports model a run for its money. But it’s when you take a look inside that it really grabs your attention.
You’ll find the cabin to be refined and ergonomically excellent. And the innovative interior technology certainly makes it difficult to look away. Especially for those unfortunate enough to not be in the car with you.
And when you are on the move, the Sportback’s high-level and impressive performance is a feast for all ogling eyes.

The last thing you want to be thinking about when you’re enjoying the high performance drive of the Audi A3 Sportback is safety. Fortunately, Audi like to keep your safety front of mind, and so every detail when it comes to your protection has already been thought about, so you don’t have to.
This model offers active technology that has been designed to think ahead, meaning that preventing and reducing the effects of an accident comes as standard. And what’s more, if the car becomes unstable, it doesn’t think twice before engaging its Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Anti Slip Regulation (ASR) to correct any loss of control.
There’s no denying that the Audi A3 Sportback is a head turner. But that’s because every design element has been turned into something more.
For starters, drivers are offered more, from a neat spoiler with an integrated third brake light and front striking LED daytime running lights, to a high gloss black grille and chrome front fog light surrounds.
And inside, passengers also get more. Although the short rear overhang keeps the A3 Sportback compact, there’s still more room to stretch out. The interior of the vehicle also underlines its class-leading status with all the same premium and luxurious materials featured on the outside.
Soft leather on the seats and steering wheel complements the many other smart finishes that help turn this stylish compact car into a head turner like no other.
Audi’s approach to design, comfort, performance and safety extends to its technology too.
And so Audi’s commitment is to offer only the very best technological features in all their models, and the A3 Sportback is no exception.
Audi’s dashboard infotainment technology takes your driving pleasure to a new level. The DAB digital radio delivers crystal clear music to your ears, while the Audi Music Interface (AMI) puts you in control of music playback at all times.
Also, by linking your smartphone or other portable devices to the system, you can select from the stored music using the steering wheel controls, so you’re fully in control on the move.
