3 generations of Audi A3



We never got the first one here in the US.
But you can see how subtle the changes are from the 2nd to the 3rd one.
Most people won't even be able to tell.

We will not be getting the 2 door hatch pictures here.
Instead, the 4 door hatch will return to the US, and the new 4 door sedan will probably become the best selling A3 over here.

. . . and they all look awful. Audi just cannot design an attractive small hatchback with that monstrous gaping Audi grille

Although I am not inclined to ever buy an Audi again, because of reliability issues, I have to admit its designs are at the top of automotive design. A3 is eye candy.

Save some cash, buy a Golf.

Funny how they all look the same.

The A3 is pointless.

If you really want a VW hatchback, save 10 grand and buy a GTI. That's really all the A3 is, and it honestly doesn't have a nicer interior or better features.

The A3 is the most pointless vehicle in the Audi lineup, and the only people who buy them are those who want a badge. It offers nothing over a regular Golf, or if you need AWD, one with 4Motion.

Done.

vw porsche audi; i never really got how they manage to operate separately given that the overlapping target market... guess somehow the A3 is worth 10k more than the GTI? I dont get it.

It is called product differentiation, when you do enough brainwashing so the customer can justify paying more. Like potatoe versus "organic potatoe."

I think they call that an oxymoron: "attractive hatchback"
