Audi A3 - compact, stylish, sporty and sophisticated at the same time. At first, the markets will be provided with three-door and five-door hatchbacks, and in the future, of course, the manufacturer plans to supply with the other modifications - at least another sedan and convertible. Exterior of the updated Audi A3 is attractive: the sculptural front view, high grille with slightly beveled corners, front lights as close as possible to the grid, so that creates the appearance of a smooth transition. They come on the wings, which for Audi A3 has been relatively innovation in the design of the exterior.
