Packed with new technology, the Audi A3 contains such accoutrements as the German company's refreshed and minimized MMI controller interface, satnav, telephone operation via a pair of switches and the "Audi Phone Box" wireless charging system.

The first and third options are matched to a six-speed manual gearbox while the 1.8-liter TFSI is paired to an S-tronic dual-clutch transmission.
The 2013 Audi A3 should be ready for delivery in Europe by September. Pricing starts around $30,150 (£19,000). An A3 sedan variant will eventually be made available for the North American market.
