The Audi A3 has been around since 1996, when it was first launched as small family car. Following a number of minor and not so minor facelifts, a second generation model was launched in 2003. This is available as three and five door hatchbacks as well as a cabriolet.
One of the more popular Audi A3 models is the hatchback version, which was launched in 2003 and is still being manufactured. This car has an excellent build quality, as you would expect from an Audi, and it is also a highly refined vehicle to drive. There is a large selection of petrol and diesel engines to choose from.
Perhaps our recent glorious summers have put you in mind of open top motoring? Well, the Audi A3 Cabriolet is a great example of what open top motoring can be. This cabriolet was launched in 2008 and new refinements have been added every year, though the earlier models have a partially manual roof.
Several A3 models are equipped with Audi’s own special four-wheel drive system called the Quattro. Audi has been a pioneer of four wheel drive, and their system is extremely sophisticated and makes the best of torque distribution using both mechanical and electronic control.
The 2011 Audi RS3 Sportback has a five cylinder, 2.5 litre engine which delivers a massive 335 bhp, with a seven speed gearbox plus on-demand four-wheel drive. This very speedy car will accelerate from rest to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds and can reach an electronically limited 155 mph.
