Trailblazer – The first Audi A3 8L - Andrew Everett takes a close look at the first series of A3s.

 

Although it’s not quite time to pop open the champagne corks, we tend to forget that it is 18 years since the first A3 went on sale.

While the two cars might have looked broadly similar underneath, however, the A3 was in fact based on the new PQ34 platform which would underpin the Mk 4 Golf, due to be launched in 1998.
