This is the all new Audi A3. And this is what is was like trying to get a picture of it during press day.
Here’s a wider angle. It was impossible.
The ever popular A3, the car which launched the high-end compact car segment back in 1996, will be offered with three drivetrains choices when it goes on sale in a few months time; one TDI and two TFSI gas engines; a 1.4 litre and 1.8 litre, the latter good for 180hp. This third gen car, besides looking like as conservative as every other Audi on sale today, does benefit from Audi’s new” ultra lightweight construction technology” and sheds a good 80kg off the weight of the old car.
Nice and tidy rear end.
Optional LED head and tail lights.
With a ground up, redesigned Mercedes A-Class and recently refreshed BMW 1-series, the new A3 will face some steep competition.
