Audi A3/S3 brand cars

GENERAL INFORMATION

AUDI A3 of the class "compact" was presented on the market in June, 1996.

At length of 4.15 m and a track of 2.51 m, 3-дверный А3 provides necessary comfort. The luggage carrier has capacity of 350 l, after an otkidyvaniye of a back of a back seat capacity of a luggage carrier increases to 1100 l.

The car is equipped with various security aids. Safety cushions of the driver and the forward passenger concern them, and also a lateral safety cushion (since 1997 of release) and natyazhitel of seat belts of forward seats. Lateral amplifiers of a body available in the doorway in addition increase passive safety.

The body is completely zinced. The ten years' guarantee of absence of corrosion is provided. For optimization of weight of the car its some elements are executed from aluminum. Amplifiers treat them in the doorway or beams in bumpers, for example.

The increase in comfort at movement is promoted by a stretcher to which the forward suspension bracket fastens. The stretcher is disconnected through rubber support from a body and thanks to it демпфирует fluctuations which otherwise are transferred to salon. At models with a forward drive the back suspension bracket with levers and a connecting beam at which for more favorable use of volume screw springs and shock-absorbers are located separately from each other (at previous model is applied amortization racks) were applied. Thanks to it it was possible to increase width of an aperture for cargo placement in a luggage carrier.
The all-wheel drive model has a back suspension bracket with dual cross-section levers.

In the car can be established both petrol, and diesel engines of various capacity that allows to make the corresponding choice depending on economic or sports nature of driving of the owner. In the real management the description of all power units is given.

In the management models with ryadny four-cylinder petrol engines of 1.6 l (AEH), 1.8 l (AGN, AGU, AQA, AJQ, APY) and diesel engines of 1.9 l (AGR, ALH, AHF, ASZ), front-wheel and with a full drive, release since 1997 are considered.

Engines settle down in an impellent compartment cross-section and are suspended on a so-called pendular support which reduces car vibrations in power setting on single turns.

The 4-lever independent forward suspension bracket with the established amortization racks practically excludes influence of operation of the engine on management of the car. At cars with a forward drive the compound lever of a back axis that allows to place optimum independently from each other screw springs and suspension bracket shock-absorbers is applied. The model with a full drive has a back suspension bracket with dual levers.

In the car the five-step manual box of gear shifting (RKPP), or four - or five-step automatic transmission (AT) can be established.
