    The Volkswagen Type 3 is a compact car that was manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen from to The Type 3 followed the Type 1 Beetle, utilizing a low-profile version of Volkswagen's rear-engined, 4-cylinder air-cooled engine, as well as body-on-chassis construction while featuring ponton styling in contrast to the Type 1's articulated fender and running board. VW finalized the design by with prototypes ready for testing by In VW announced the new line as the "VW ".

    Production began in August , a month before launch, of the Volkswagen Notchback, encompassing three-box styling in a notchback saloon body. Volkswagen's intention was that this model should replace the Notchback, which is what happened in the UK market, but in other markets, including the German domestic market, the number of customers preferring the older Notchback shaped car was higher than foreseen, and in the end both Notchback and Fastback body shapes remained in production until July Volkswagen of America began importing the Type 3 in in the "Squareback" 'Variant' badges were not used in the US market and "Fastback" but not the Notchback configurations.

    The Type 3 was competing in the market with the Chevrolet Corvair that had been previously introduced in the United States in , which incorporated a 6-cylinder rear-mounted air-cooled engine in notchback and station wagon body style, as well as a compact van derived from the platform. In , the Type 3 'E' Einspritzung became the first German automobile in series production with electronic fuel injection Bosch D-Jetronic as standard equipment.

    The larger Volkswagen Type 4 was introduced in which had a similar mechanical layout with further engineering refinements. For the model year, in the USA, a three-speed fully automatic transaxle became available, noted for extremely low internal friction.

    As Volkswagen started to produce front-wheel-drive water-cooled designs, production ended in at the Wolfsburg plant, with production moving to VW's new Emden plant, which was later retooled in to build the first generation Passat marketed variously, also as the "Dasher". The Wolfsburg plant was retooled to build the Golf , which eventually replaced the Type 1 as Volkswagen's best selling sedan.

The engine's displacement would eventually increase to 1. It used a similar transmission to the Beetle but with higher ratios 4. Unlike the Beetle Type 1 , the Type 3 engine and transmission unit was mounted into a subframe which contained the complete rear suspension , in turn rubber-mounted to the floorpan and body, thereby isolating vibration and road noise from the passenger space.

    The Type 3 engine received a larger displacement 1. Also introduced for was a fully automatic transmission. The Type 3's torsion bars are cross-mounted in the lower tube, so that each individual torsion bar spans the full width of the car, the upper tube containing an anti-roll bar that connects the upper trailing links to each other.

    The complete front suspension unit is rubber-mounted to the car's floorpan. In the rear suspension was upgraded to double jointed CV joint semi trailing arm suspension sometimes called IRS by VW enthusiasts to differentiate it from the previous IRS swing-axle type , a design feature that previously appeared on the VW Type 2 in The Type 3 offered both front and rear enclosed luggage areas, with greater volume and cargo accessibility via both the boot trunk and the bonnet hood.
