The A3 compact car has been produced continuously since 1996. Originally meant as a family car, the A3 is now in its third generation with a number of available variants. Retail prices in the US market start from $31,200.
The four door sedan now features distinctive lines and a bold front grille with a view to give the car an aggressive, sports look. Xenon headlights add a touch of nighttime brilliance.
