Audi A3 Highlights
Instead of having a crack at the luxury hatchback segment like other rivaling German manufacturers, Audi decided to be the first to open up the compact luxury sedan segment in India with the A3 sedan. The brand has managed to launch the car with a starting price tag on par with luxury hatchbacks, and so, what you get – is a lot more car for your money. The A3 may well make sense to someone looking at upgrading to a luxury car, without having to spend a bigger amount of money on a larger car like the A4. The 2017 A3 comes with a few updates that include cosmetic alterations, more features and a new petrol engine as well.
The A3 is very typically Audi from the outside, thanks to its understated design language. Up-front, it gets a huge 'diamond' grille, flanked by edgier and sleeker headlamps that look identical to the ones on the A4. Bi-xenon headlamps will be a standard fit, but Audi is said to give customers the option of an LED lights package as well. There's a nice, prominent belt line along the sides, along with slightly flared wheel arches. You can either have 16 or 17-inch wheels, based on what variant you opt for. The revised tail lamp clusters at the rear carry nice detail with indicators that have the light move in the direction of the turn being taken. Those neat lines, sloping roof and wide frame give it a very likable stance. The A3 is built on VW's flexible MQB platform.
The Audi A3 variants are as follows: 35 TFSI Premium Plus, 35 TFSI Technology, 35 TDI Premium Plus, 35 TDI Technology. Features include electronically-adjustable front seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen for the MMI infotainment system, proximity sensors at the front and rear, two-zone climate control, wireless phone charging pad in the front armrest and a sunroof. On the safety front, it comes equipped with a rear view camera, traction control, ABS, electronic stability control and seven airbags.
The cabin of the A3 remains similar to the previous model, expect for a few changes – like the sporty, three-spoke steering wheel, for instance. Then there are those turbine-like AC vents at the front that look really cool. Everything around feels well built – right from the plastic surfaces to the knobs and buttons on the central console; even shutting one of the doors results in a solid thunk. The powered seats at the front are comfortable and provide good support. Legroom at the rear could've been better, but the seats are well cushioned, and offer decent under-thigh support. Boot space at 425 litres, is pretty good for those trips to the airport.
Engine Specifications & Performance
The Audi A3 is powered by two engine options: a 1.4-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo petrol engine that makes 148bhp and 250Nm of torque, and a 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 141bhp and 320Nm of torque. Paired to both engines is a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The petrol engine is smooth, but gets a bit loud when you push it hard. It goes from 0-100kph in 8.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 224kph. Using the manual gear lever leaves you surprised at how responsive the gearbox is, while the dual-clutch transmission is pretty quick. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is torquey and pulls well right through the rev range, while refinement is decent. Ride quality too, remains compliant. The steering, though light, feels direct, making the A3 a hoot to drive.
The Audi A3's ARAI-certified fuel efficiency figure is rated at 20.38kmpl for the diesel model and 19.2kpl for the petrol model.
