Chery A3 was a compact car designed by Pininfarina and released in September 2008. The concept for the hatchback variant was unveiled at the 2006 Beijing motor show, while the production model did not hit showrooms until January 2009. The three-box, sedan version was launched in Shanghai in 2007. On August 22, 2007, an A3 became the 1 millionth Chery car to roll off the production line.

In the summer of 2007, Chery reportedly signed an agreement with Chrysler and Fiat on exporting the A3 to North America; the project was aborted the next year. In February 2011 Chery started to sell the compact as "J3" in Australia. In Brazil, the A3 was marketed as "Chery Cielo."

In 2013, 6,941 units of the sedan and 2,438 of the hatchback were delivered.
