The Audi A3 is a staple in the Audi range. Today it's part of a small pool of compact cars within the premium segment.
First introduced in the 1990s, the Audi A3 went on sale in Australia shortly after.
Competing with cars such as the BMW 1 Series and Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the Audi A3 is offered as an entry-level front-wheel drive, all the way through to an all-wheel drive sports model called the RS3.
