The already desirable Audi A3, one of the best loved and acclaimed high-end hatchbacks, has also been released in a five-door Sportback model variant.
The A3 Sportback carries the best design cues and trademark flourishes from the rest of Audi's A3 range, with a striking grille and elegant lines leading the eye down the length of the car. It's not hard to see why the A3 is still the hatchback of choice for anyone looking for a car with a little extra style.
The Sportback includes two rear passenger doors that serve to accentuate the A3's looks by making it appear larger.
Each trim option comes with alloy wheels. The standard SE edition comes with 16-inch alloy wheels that boast a five-spoke star design, whilst the other trim options, boast alloys ranging between 16 and 18-inch.
The interior of the Audi A3 Sportback also comes with a range of customisation options available. For a start, the Sport trim swaps out the front seats in favour of specialist sport seats covered in Rallye cloth, whilst sport seats in the S Line and Black Edition trims come swathed in leather or sequence cloth upholstery that has been embossed with Audi's S logo.
Elsewhere, each A3 Sportback comes equipped with a seven-inch central display mounted in the dashboard which, along with a dial, allows easy control of the car's multimedia communications such as the CD player and DAB digital radio.
The A3 Sportback comes with a range of engines, the most efficient of which is the 1.6-litre diesel. Highly efficient, the 1.6-litre diesel emits less than 100g/km of CO2. The 2.0-litre TDI 150 diesel offers more power without sacrificing efficiency, and you can keep CO2 emissions down to 105g/km if you stick with a front-wheel drive system.
As with the other A3 models, the Sportback comes with electromechanical power steering and dynamic suspension as standard, although lower sport suspension is available with the S Line and Black Edition trims.
The A3 Sportback is an exceptionally safe car, affording the maximum protection to both driver and passengers should they be involved in a road traffic accident. The A3 Sportback holds a five-star crash test rating from Euro NCAP, scoring 95 percent for adult crash protection and 87 percent for child protection in a collision. What's more the A3 received a full five stars from Thatcham security experts for its resistance to being stolen.
