Distinctive: Exterior design & lighting

The all-new Audi A3 Sportback at Audi Centre
The all-new Audi A3 Sportback has a sporty and taut road stance thanks to compact proportions and a dynamic design. The wide singleframe and large air inlets at the front end accentuate the dynamic character. The extended shoulder line runs in a wedge shape from the headlights to the rear lights, making the A3 Sportback appear longer.  For extra dynamism alloy wheels up to 19" are on offer. There are three versions of lighting technology available. All models feature LED headlights.

Interior: Driver-focused & digitalised

The sporty and sophisticated design continues in the interior, the cockpit of the A3 Sportback is focused on the driver. It uses familiar elements from the brand’s full-size models and is equipped with a 10.1-inch touch display as standard, which is integrated into the center of the instrument panel. This recognizes letters entered by hand, provides acoustic feedback and can be controlled using natural language. The instrument cluster, which the driver operates via the multifunction steering wheel, is also digital as standard with virtual cockpit available as an option. The MMI operating concept offers telephony and the Audi connect services with LTE Advanced speed, and an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot.

Engines: Sophisticated & powerful

The new Audi A3 Sportback will have a choice of two engine versions – a 1.5 TFSI with 110 kW* and a 2.0 TDI that delivers 85 kW**. All engines impress with their powerful torque and sophisticated running characteristics. The engine versions at start of production will be combined with front-wheel drive. Power will be transmitted by a six-speed manual transmission or the quick-shifting seven-speed S tronic, the selector lever of which is now designed as a compact shifter. The driver can push and pull this to control the basic functions of the automatic transmission.

Well versed: the driver assist systems

Equipped with Audi pre sense front, collision assist and lane departure warning, the A3 Sportback helps prevent accidents with other road users and offers a high level of safety as standard. Further assist systems, such as the lane change and exit warnings as well as the cross-traffic and park assist systems, are available as an option. The adaptive cruise assist, which customers know from many of the full-size models, assists with longitudinal and lateral guidance. It maintains the speed and distance to the vehicle in front and assists with lane guidance by means of gentle interventions in the electromechanical steering. This increases the level of driving comfort during long journeys in particular.

Also Available: Audi A3 Saloon

The all-new Audi A3 Saloon

from €32,545 OTR

Beneath the elegant body, new drives and refined suspension tuning ensure a driving experience that is as efficient as it is dynamic. The new A3 Saloon is presented in a sporty, elegant look. The body line on the Saloon, extends up to the rear bumper, emphasising its length and gives the flank an elegant appearance. The concave surface under the broad body shoulder further accentuates the quattro blisters and the sill, creating an intensive play of light and shadow. The roof line slopes down from the B-pillar dynamically – just like on a coupé – and finishes in a striking spoiler on the tailgate.

The new A3 Saloon is available with a choice of two TFSI engines and one TDI engine at launch, high efficiency being a common theme across both. The 35 TFSI, a 1.5-litre direct injection engine, produces 150 PS and is available in two versions – with a newly developed six-speed manual transmission1 and with a quick-shifting seven-speed S tronic2. Besides the cylinder on demand technology, the powertrain in conjunction with the S tronic dual clutch transmission uses a 48-volt mild hybrid system. It recovers energy during deceleration, supports the engine with up to 50 Nm of torque when driving off and accelerating from low engine speeds and allows the A3 Saloon to coast with the engine switched off in many situations. In everyday driving, it reduces consumption by up to 0.4 litres per 100 kilometres.
