All Audi A3family members, including the hatchbacks with 3 and 5 doors, sedan, convertible, S3 sport versions, but also the ecological models A3 Sportback g-tron and A3 Sportback e-tron have gone through a mid-career facelift.

On the outside, we see that the A3 facelift has brought redesigned spoilers and more prominent grille. But the great novelty is the headlamps with Matrix LED technology. These are the most advanced option. Standard are Xenon headlights, and the intermediary option is the LED ones.
For bodywork, 12 colors are now available.

The Audi A3 facelift introduced for the first time in the compact segment the so-called virtual cockpit, which means a TFT screen with a diagonal of 12.3 inches, which takes the place of the classic instrument cluster.

The MMI system to control multimedia functions now has a reconfigured menu and is provided with a rotary knob, which has a touch panel that recognizes tracing letters with your finger and gestures such as zoom in for maps.

In addition, the voice command recognition system for navigation, radio, media, and phone, now understand more everyday language expressions wording. Among other equipment installed, we have the windshield that provides sound insulation (standard), or massage function for the driver's seat.
