The Audi A3 is a compact car produced since 1996 by Audi. The third-generation A3 uses the Volkswagen Group MQB platform. After four years the third-generation Audi A3 was facelifted for the model year 2017. The new A3 sedan was given significant cosmetic updates, which were in-line with the automaker’s new design philosophy.
