The Audi A3 is a premium mid-size hatchback that was one of the first of its kind.
It first brought luxury to the masses in the 1990s, well before its BMW and Mercedes-Benz rivals.
Within Audi's own line-up, it's one of the smallest passenger cars the brand offers, with the A1 light hatch sitting below and A4, A5 and A6 larger sedans sitting above.
Pricing for the Audi A3 begins in the $30,000 bracket and can venture as high as $60,000 for some higher-spec variants.
The Audi A3 is available with a selection of engines which can power either the front- or all-four wheels dependent on variant.
The Audi A3 can come in either sedan or hatchback form, though the most common is the hatchback.
The Audi A3 competes with similar luxury hatchbacks like the BMW 1 Series, Mercedes-Benz A Class and Lexus CT range.
The Audi A3 is equipped with a front-wheel-drive platform for the lower-spec variants, but the option of a all-wheel drive is available.
Current Audi A3s have cruise control fitted as standard, and some even have adaptive cruise control.
The new Audi A3 does come with Apple CarPlay.
