The new Audi A3 will be open for orders this spring priced from £19,000 with first deliveries in September. CO2 emissions of as little as 99g/km in the new Audi A3 have been made possible with the help of ‘Audi ultra’ lightweight technology, which has enabled it to tip the scales an impressive 80 kg lighter than its predecessor.
The interior of the Audi A3 has been completely redesigned breaking new ground in the class in terms of quality and design, with standards of materials, workmanship and ergonomics which genuinely push the boundaries at this level. Highlights include the minimalist ‘floating’ dashboard with its round air vents, elegant climate control panel and redesigned instrument cluster. The new Audi A3 will launch with three four-cylinder engines, all of which are essentially new developments. The 1.4-litre and 1.8-litre TFSI engines and the 2.0-litre TDI have outputs of 122PS, 180PS and 143PS respectively. Compared with the previous model, they offer fuel economy improvements averaging 12 per cent.
