There are three exterior lines and three interior lines available for the Audi A3 Sportback, which can be combined as desired. In addition to the basic version, there is the advanced exterior and the S line exterior. With regard to the colors and materials in the interior, A3 customers can choose between basic, interior design selection, and interior S line. The A3 Sportback thus offers numerous possibilities for individualization.

Tapered: the exterior variants

In the advanced exterior variant, the frames of the air inlets are designed in selenite silver, while those of the S line exterior are a matt platinum gray. There are similar differences at the rear end. The Singleframe of both lines is painted in titanium black and surrounded by a chrome frame. The air inlets and the blade that completes the front end at the bottom are larger and more striking with the S line exterior. There is a third flat air inlet above the blade. The honeycomb grilles in the Singleframe are larger and have small insert strips. The grille is mounted a little lower and there are three flat louvers above it. The roof edge spoiler has a dynamic contour and the diffuser insert has a more dominant design.

In both lines, the optional black styling package further sharpens its appearance. It includes the frame of the Singleframe and of the air inlets and the blade. In the
S line exterior, it also includes the frame of the diffuser and the insert strips in the side sill. The housings of the exterior mirrors are also available in black.

A roof rail in matt black or anodized aluminum is available as an option for all three exterior variants. A3 customers can choose between twelve colors for the paint finish. Atoll blue, turbo blue, Manhattan gray, and python yellow are new colors.

Individualized: the interior lines

Different seat upholstery in various color combinations, ranging from sustainable recycled material to fine Nappa leather, are available for the three interior designs. The “Puls” and “Torsion” materials used to cover the seats in the S line and design selection interior variants consist of up to 89 percent recycled polyester. For one set of seats made of “Torsion” material, 45 1.5-liter PET bottles are shredded, melted down, chopped, and extruded to create fibers which are then spun into threads. There is also a large selection of materials and colors for the decor surfaces on the instrument panel, for example insert strips made of gray birch wood, two aluminum designs, or carbon.

Both lines include a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, illuminated door sill trims, and stylish contrasting stitching on the center armrest, the door armrests, and the instrument panel. The design selection also includes topstitching on the gear/selector lever and the floor mats.

The contour/ambient lighting package will follow shortly after the market launch: It can be adjusted to 30 different colors and illuminates the distinctive design lines with striking light and the surfaces with soft light. The Interior S line includes the advanced sport seats with leather and Alcantara covers, which are decorated with a new rhombus pattern. The Interior S line is complemented by a black headlining, stainless steel pedals, S embossing in the front seat backrests, and a steering wheel with contrasting stitching and the S emblem.
