All-New Audi A3 Gives An Even More Polished Performance

Audi New A3
Audi A3 (2003)

Acknowledged as the first car to bring premium brand qualities to the compact hatchback sector, the Audi A3 reinvents itself this year as an even more spacious, refined, responsive and meticulously built act to follow for the class it created back in 1996. The all-new Audi A3 goes on sale in the UK in the summer of 2003.

Featuring a completely new body shell that is every inch as timelessly styled as its predecessor, the new Audi A3 also offers considerably more interior space thanks to a wheel-base extended by 65 millimetres and an increase in body width of 30mm.

It has also been transformed mechanically, by a wide variety of new or improved EU4 compliant petrol and TDI engines, revolutionary new transmission options, revised front and all-new independent rear suspension and new electro-mechanical power steering.
