Facelifted Audi A3 revealed in Europe

Last petrol-powered A3 unveiled ahead of small Audi model’s all-electric move in 2027

13 Mar 2024

AUDI has shown its updated 2025 A3 range in Europe this week, the small premium offering understood to be the last petrol-powered model to come from the four-ring brand before an all-electric replacement debuts in 2027.


Based on the current fourth generation A3, the revision sees new frontal styling – including updated four-mode LED headlights, Singleframe grille and bumper – paired with a tweaked lower grille treatment, a new rear bumper cover, new tail-lights, and a selection of new exterior colours.


In profile, the 2025 Audi A3 is characterised by dark-painted rocker covers exaggerating the increased ride height (+15mm) of the new allstreet variant. Alloy wheel sizes range from 17- to 19 inches in diameter.


“The Audi A3 allstreet stands out from the rest of the A3 family from the very first impression,” said Audi Exterior Design team leader Stephan Fahr-Becker.


“The aim was to use specific design elements to emphasise the vehicle’s higher ground clearance even more clearly.”


Inside, the A3 allstreet is said to offer easier ingress and egress and well as a better view of the road ahead. Joining the remaining A3 range, the model offers 380 litres of cargo space and up to 1200 litres with the rear seats folded.


Optional features include an electric tailgate, removable tow hitch, and handy trunk net.


Further forward the Audi A3 sees fewer changes, with a 10.5-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.1-inch MMI infotainment touchscreen remaining front and centre. DAB+ digital audio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity remain, while the shift-by-wire gear selector scores a new bezel and a rectangular steering wheel centre (and airbag cover) replaces the circular unit of the outgoing model.


Safety equipment carries over from the previous A3 and continues to include adaptive cruise control, AEB with cyclist and pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, exit warning, high beam assist, lane departure and keeping technology, park assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.


Under the bonnet the A3 continues to offer a choice of 1.5-litre mild hybrid or 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engines. Outputs are rated at 110kW and 140kW respectively.


Production of the newest A3 hatch and sedan range will begin in Ingolstadt, Germany from this month (March).


Australian delivery timing, pricing and specifications are yet to be advised. The current A3 range is available locally from $50,600 plus on-road costs in hatchback format and from $53,100 + ORC for the four-door sedan.
