New A3 3.2 Quattro
Audi Reinvents The Premium Compact HatchbackWhich Created A Totally New Sector

Acknowledged as the first car to bring premium brand qualities to the compact hatchback sector, the Audi A3 is reinvented 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 on June 12th 2003.

A completely new body shell which is 30mm wider than its predecessor, and ever inch as timelessly styled, gives the latest Audi A3 considerably more interior space, helped by a wheel-base which has been extended by 65 millimetres. The newcomer has also grown up mechanically, thanks to 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.
