Meanwhile, the new Audi A3 allstreet gets a more rugged appearance. The model gets dark rocker side skirts, and wider wheel arches to accommodate the larger 17-inch wheels, as against the 16-inch alloys on the sedan. The suspension on the A3 allstreet also features a 15 mm higher ride height for added comfort.

The cabin on the new Audi A3 has also received subtle revisions to the aesthetics. This includes a new design for the gear shifter, air vents, new lighting, and fabric inlays made out of 100 per cent recycled polyester. The cabin comes with a new three-spoke steering wheel, while there are new finishes across the cabin for a refreshed look. The A3 range now comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the Audi Virtual Cockpit. There are also two USB-C charging ports, and an updated MMI unit with voice command, Amazon Alexa compatibility and more.
