Sport Package for the Audi A3

Ingolstadt - More dynamism, an enhanced sports appearance and more individuality - these are the distinguishing features of the quattro GmbH sport package for the Audi A3. Two sporty equipment versions - the interior package and the suspension package - are available "ex factory".

The quattro sports equipment sets the Audi A3 clearly apart from the standard version. The suspension package, including lowering, specially tuned springs and firmer shock absorbers, ensures even more direct contact with the road. Cast alloy wheels of 9-spoke or 10-spoke design, with wide tyres of size 225/45 ZR 17, complete the package. The suspension package can be ordered for engine versions from 1.8 (92 kW) upwards and the 1.9 TDI (96 kW).

A further prerequisite for a sportier drive is a functional interior with three-spoke sports steering wheel, instrument cluster with light grey dials and controls in easy-grip leather. Perfectly fitting sports seats including lumbar support, with side sections in leather and special "Speed" cloth upholstery, are colour coordinated with the headlining and side trim panels together with the storage compartment in black leather. The interior package can also be ordered with Recaro sports seats. The exclusive atmosphere inside the car is rounded off by the Driver Information System (DIS), the Audi on-board computer with Auto Check Control.
