We have three main categories while making this analysis such as; The Features of the Audi A3, The Fuel Consumption of the Audi A3 and Is it Suits You? Before beginning to the analysis, let’s talk about the history of the Audi A3. It is a subcompact family vehicle which is manufacturing and selling since mid-90’s. The vehicle designed by Dirk van Braeckel. It was originally available with three-door hatchback body type only at first.

The classical Audi grill looks also sharper and aesthetic. We all know the Audi quality which we are used to see at the body of the vehicle.
