This is the Audi A3 Black Edition.
The new edition is on sale in three- and five-door plus cabriolet versions. The engines available include 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrols, alongside 140bhp and 170bhp 2.0-litre diesels.
All models come in the S line trim, with the addition of xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights, parking sensors and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The interior is finished in black and an uprated Bose stereo is fitted.
As the name suggests, black paint is standard – although the car can be ordered in white at no extra cost. Metallic black, red and silver are also available as options.
Prices start from £22,215 - a £905 premium from the standard S line equivalents.
