Audi A3  Technical data and accessories  Technical data
The figures for some markets can vary due to different export versions and test procedures.
Please note that the details listed in the vehicle's registration documents can be taken as correct.
Performance figures
The performance figures were measured without equipment which may influence performance, such as mudflaps or extremely wide-section tyres.
Kerb weight (unladen weight)
In accordance with GB 1589 for China: the kerb weight does not include the driver.
In accordance with 92/21/EEC for Europe and certain other markets: the kerb weight includes an allowance of 75 kg for the driver and luggage.
Maximum weights/loads for towing
When towing, the gross vehicle weight and the maximum rear axle weight may be exceeded by up to 50 kg.
Maximum trailer weights
The maximum trailer weights are calculated in accordance with the currently applicable version of 92/21/EEC.
Maximum draw bar loading
The vertical load exerted by the trailer drawbar on the ball joint of the towing bracket must not exceed 75 kg.
In the interest of safety, we recommend applying the maximum permitted draw bar weight. The stability of the trailer could be adversely affected if too little weight is applied.
If the maximum permitted drawbar weight cannot be obtained, e.g. when using small or light trailers, statutory regulations require that the drawbar weight be at least 4% of the actual trailer weight (for single-axle trailers or twin-axle trailers with an axle spacing less than 1.0 m).
