2016 Audi A3 TDI Sportback
The Audi A3 is a executive car produced by the German automaker since 1996. Over the years, the Audi A3 has undergone three generations. Due to the increase in sales of Audi models with diesel engines in the USA, the German company has decided to continue this trend with 2016 Audi A3 TDI Sportback. This model bears resemblance to VW Golf and represents its more luxurious and sportier model. Although Audi A3 comes with some features which Golf doesn’t have there are still many similarities between these two models. Just like always, Audi wanted and managed to distinguish its model from those that are offered by Volkswagen with more luxurious features
