Audi Plans on Launching a Newer Version of the A3
|   Thursday, February 14, 2013
Audi has plans to launch the new generation of the A3 sporting the least powerful engine but emitting the least amount of CO2. The vehicle is expected to be powered by a 1.6 liter diesel engine emitting 99 g/km of CO2 with an expected fuel efficiency of 74.3 MPG. Electronic measures include automatic start / stop and this vehicle is expected to be priced close to £1000 above the petrol model.

The low CO2 emission means the vehicle features additional tax benefits from the Government and this is another added side of the vehicle which could boost sales once the A3 hits the market.
The vehicle will sport three basic trim levels while the Sport is available for testing at the moment. Some of the standard features of the Sport model include sports seats, dual zone climate control technology, updated upholstery, etc.

The price point at which this vehicle could be available is next to that of the BMW 1 Series and the added financial advantages make sure that this vehicle remains a great investment opportunity on the long run. Power displacement of 104 BHP @ 3000 RPM along with 184 ft lb of torque @ 1500 RPM is not the greatest for a diesel vehicle although you will have enough power to drive the vehicle on the road.

Every positive aspect comes with a price and the price paid for lower CO2 emission is lesser power. However, the diesel engine is quite relaxed and refined and there are no unnecessary vibrations or sound from the engine disturbing the sanity of the cabin and the pedestrians. Audi is known for refinement and the classy German technology has been used to the fullest potential to come out with the new A3.

However, when you push this vehicle to the limit you will realize that you get your money's worth. Therefore it is advisable not to push this car to its very limits as the mechanism will not do a very good job of supporting the driver's morale. However the parts are considerably well built and as a result there is no need to worry about mechanical failure.

Ride quality has been enhanced and this A3 works better than the other models of the A3 on the road. Suspension settings have been modified and the adaptive dampers work well to control body balance and roll. Standard 17 inch rims are provided and this maintains perfect proportion on the A3. Torsion beam suspension is responsible for the maximum amount of over firmness of the chassis. However, for the best driver's review, it is advisable that you drive the A3 instead of taking advice from the experts.

Considering its price point, the A3 should make a very good proposition. It is smart, efficient as well as holds on to the drive ergonomics pretty well. Overall, this makes for a great vehicle and people who are looking for a vehicle for everyday use, should definitely try for this vehicle. If you know what you are looking for, then the new A3 should perfectly fit your bill.
