History of the Audi A3

The Audi A3 was first introduced in 1996 and is still one of the brand’s most popular models, offering a luxury range of variants such as the hatchback, saloon and convertible.

The A3 was initially only available with three doors in both front and four-wheel drive. However, in 1999, Audi introduced a five-door model, with the introduction of a six-speed gearbox in late 2000.

In 2014, the Audi A3 won World Car of the Year and continues to be a leading choice for those looking for a premium hatchback.

The Audi A3 is available in several models and a variety of trim options in each.

Audi A3 Sportback

Equipped to complete any journey in comfort and style, the Sportback suits any driving style – you’ll be amazed by the handling and driving experience.

The striking aesthetics of the instantly recognisable front grille perfectly complement the Audi exclusive paint finishes and provide the Sportback with the personality to match any style.

From the ample leg room to the spacious boot, the Audi A3 Sportback’s interior is impressive with the centre display perfectly framed by the centre console with luxurious trim. When the A3 went on the market, there was a choice of 30 colour options available, allowing you to find your ideal interior design to enhance your driving experience. Whether it’s the ambient lighting package available with the S Line or the lever operation gear shift found on the S Tronic, you can find the perfect Audi A3 to meet your needs and aspirations.

The touch display found on some models gives you access to all the functionality available in your specific car. You’ll never be lost thanks to the navigation display which is there to help guide your journey, while you can also benefit from a range of driver assistance tools, such as parking sensors, lane assistance, hill assist and front sensors, all of which are all easily accessible via the centre console. Treat yourself to the sounds of a Bang and Olufsen 3D premium sound system with the Technik trim and enjoy your driving experience to its fullest.

Audi A3 Saloon

Like the Sportback, the Audi A3 Saloon provides all the quality and comfort that is expected from a luxury car brand. If you are looking for something smaller than the A4 Saloon, the A3 Saloon should be a serious consideration. The main competitors are the likes of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon and BMW 2 Series. As the sportiest of models, with its wrap-around cockpit interior, the A3 Saloon offers something unique with its lower seating position, sleeker sweeping roofline and larger boot space.

The Audi A3 Saloon comes with speed-sensitive steering and can adapt from driving around town with light manoeuvrable steering to heavier steering as you get faster, maintaining a pleasurable driving experience no matter the situation.

The Saloon comes in a variety of engine size options, so whether it is the petrol 1.4 TFSI or diesel 1.6 TDI you are after, there will be the engine size perfect for your needs. There is also a hybrid option for those looking to make the change to a more environmentally friendly option.

Audi A3 Cabriolet

Enjoy the wind through your hair with the Audi A3 Cabriolet S Line or Sport, the convertible model of the A3 saloon. With contemporaries including the BMW 2 Series Convertible and the VW Golf Cabriolet, the A3 Cabriolet finds itself in good company.

Minimising the typical vibrations found when losing the hard top, the Audi A3 Cabriolet demonstrates what can be achieved from a premium car manufacturer offering comfortable, safe handling that one would expect from a car of this pedigree.

With a variety of engine size choices available, you can find the perfect used Audi A3 Cabriolet for sale, though many opt for the turbo version to provide that extra thrill and performance. You can find the perfect convertible for your needs with Arnold Clark.

Although the Audi A3 Cabriolet is not a sports car style convertible, it offers the comfort and quality one has come to associate with the Audi brand and should be considered by anyone in the market for a Cabriolet of this size.
