The A3 has been given the A4/R8 treatment so now it looks like its more mature siblings. The headlights are flatter, with distinctive outer contours.

Though, the biggest update to the A3 is the new 1.0 petrol engine. It will be given a 1.0 TFSI, 3-cylinder engine with a 115hp and 200Nm output. This could be the pick of the bunch for the updated A3.

Now also available in the A3 is the virtual cockpit. Read about my experiences of the virtual cockpit in the A4. A new 7-inch display is as standard now and can be equipped with MMI Navigation or MMI Navigation plus. By equipping the on-board internet, users can use navigation with Google Earth and Google Street View traffic information in real time. They can also see real time info on parking, destinations, news or the weather.

The facelift A3 is due to go on sale in August.
