Since its launch in 1996, the little Audi A3 is preparing to cross the milestone of 2 million units sold around the world, although a significant portion of these sales has reached Europeen soil.
In 2003, the firm Ingolstadt procedee the output of the 2nd generation of the latter and since then sales have ceased to grow on all markets, including in 2005, when the arrival of the Sportback version four-door hatchback. In Europe especially, the A3 and S3 cuts hatchback versions are very taken.
Today, the leaders of the four rings manufacturer, we put water in the mouth, especially for us in America, by presenting a taste of what will be the seductive Audi A3 in its livery 2009.
