Audi A3Debut Audi A3 was held in 1996. The first two years Audi A3 was produced only in the three-door body, but already in 1999 at the Geneva Motor Show was presented a five-door version of the body.

The length of the car remained the same, only the location of the rear rack, which has become more vertical, has changed. Because the model is built on a platform Golf IV, the power unit has a transverse arrangement, but it did not prevent the company Audi to release the all-wheel drive version - Audi A3 Quattro.

In this case the manufacturer had to refusefrom the traditional permanent all-wheel drive and, taking into account the layout features of the car, apply a scheme with interaxial viscous coupling, similar to that set on Golf IV Sincro.

The car is produced in three standard trim levels: Ambiente, Attarction and Ambition ("Calmness", "attractiveness" and "ambition"). Externally, the cars are almost indistinguishable, however, in the interior decoration and equipment list there is a great variety.

The basic configuration includesanti-lock braking system, two airbags, belt tensioner, servo control, power windows, dust filter and pollen filter, and rear head restraints.

For the safety of the car is responsibleanti-theft system with immobilizer, interior monitoring sensor and central locking of doors, luggage compartment and fuel tank hatch. If desired, the salon can be made leather. The design of the driver's seat and the upholstery give the saloon an elegant look. Comfortable seats allow you to travel for long distances.
