The A3 range
The new Audi A3
From the bold exterior styling to the luxurious interior, the redesigned Audi A3 redefines European elegance. Intelligent technologies include Audi Virtual Cockpit* that lets you customise your driving experience, Matrix* LED headlights that see into the corners and illuminate more of the road ahead, plus an array of innovative driver assistance systems.* The exceptional new Audi A3 – it’s a perfect balance of brains and beauty.
The Audi Matrix LED headlights
Night becomes day: the optional Audi Matrix LED headlights provide bright and even illumination of the road. Individual LEDs are turned on or off depending on the situation, meaning that they always deliver precise illumination. In addition, the LEDs have 64 different dimming levels. Road signs are targeted with reduced brightness so that the driver is not dazzled. Dynamic indicator lights are included – even in the rear.
More than just a view ahead: with the optional Audi virtual cockpit, you always have all the key information clearly in view. Two display modes are available for the 12.3 inch display: the classic view in which the instruments are as large as the traditional analogue displays, and the infotainment mode, which contrasts to provide a central window in the foreground, allowing space for features such as a navigation map.
The equipment in the new Audi A3
The Audi A3 Sportback is also setting new standards with the extended standard equipment: The xenon plus headlights including all-weather light in new distinctive graphics, the Bluetooth interface and the MMI radio with 7-inch display are, for example, even in the basic equipment on board.
Engines and transmissions
The updated engines
All engines impress with an agile ride as well as high efficiency. Two petrol engines are available; the 110 kW (150 hp) 1.4 TFSI and the 140 kW (190 hp) 2.0 TFSI Sport.
The start-stop-system helps to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by switching off the engine in stationary phases, e.g. at traffic lights. The start process is initiated as soon as the clutch is pressed (manual transmission) or when the footbrake is released (S tronic) for a good getaway. Can be deactivated at any time via a button.
Fuel consumption combined in l/100 km
110 kW (150 hp) 1.4 TFSI = 4.9
140 kW (190 hp) 2.0 TFSI Sport = 5.7
