About

The Audi A3 is a luxury hatchback introduced in 1996. Early models were three-door-only, but latter versions were available with five doors as well. Engines range from 1.6L and 2.0L petrol engines, and also 1.6L, 1.9L and 2.0L diesel engines. A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available, including power steering, remote central locking, electronic engine immobiliser and supplemental restraint systems. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Audi repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
