The front view

It matches the design of the other family models, with the geometric shape of the dominant single frame maskerino. Led lanterns stand out, which have a technological look, while below them we find two air (false) mouthpieces which are integrated with the overall design. The profile retains its muscular shape while the back is completely Audi style and if we have to find a resemblance in the family, this would be the Q3 Sportback model.

From the inside

The A3 brings significant changes compared to the previous generation. The technological aspect is transmitted by the presence of many digital screens while, including the frame and the whole interior looks curated. The two climber exits located next to the digital dashboard stand out, while the infotainment screen is integrated into the dashboard.

Technologically, the Audi A3 includes the contemporary level of what the Volkswagen Group can offer. Here we can mention the automatic gearbox with the command not with lever but with stick, this is possible thanks to the technology “shift by wire”, similar to what we have seen in Golf VIII.

In the space below the commands of the air conditioner, the mobile can be charged wireless, while integration with infotainment is possible through the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto platforms. For the latter, the connection is made by cable, while the “wireless” connection is possible via Bluetooth.
