The Audi A3 range will be overhauled in the summer with a raft of visual and technical tweaks.
The exterior has become, in Audi’s words, sharper and more striking, with new headlamps and panels.
Inside, aluminium has been splashed around the cabin and the switches, controls and instruments given a new look.
Power comes from four petrol and three diesel engines with between 102bhp and 200bhp.
A reworked 2.0 TDI with 170bhp will follow later.
The trim levels have been reworked with extra equipment and prices have risen accordingly.
The exact prices will be announced nearer to launch.
