Audi unveils facelifted A3 range

The current-gen Audi A3 range has been around for nearly four years and is due for an upgrade. Fortunately, Audi has given it just that with the launch of the facelifted A3 range in Europe. The range includes hatchback, sedan and the hot S3 models.

All the models in the facelifted A3 range feature a new front fascia with a revised grille and restyled headlights. The A3 facelift also gets a new rear diffuser and modestly revised taillights. Other changes include an extended colour palette and optional matrix LED headlights. Inside, the interior largely carries over but Audi has revised the three-spoke steering wheel and upgraded the MMI infotainment system with simplified menus. The highlight, of course, is the 12.3-inch display (Audi’s virtual cockpit system) that is available as an optional extra.

Under the hood, a variety of different engines can be had with the new A3 range. A 1-litre 115bhp TFSI three-cylinder, a 150bhp 1.4-litre TFSI and a new 2-litre TFSI with 190bhp will form the petrol range. The diesel range, on the other hand, will include a 110bhp 1.6-litre TDI and a 2-litre TDI with outputs of 150bhp as well as 184bhp.

The new A3 range will go on sale next month in Europe. As for the Indian market, Audi India will bring the facelifted A3 in the more appealing sedan form sometime early next year. The car will continue to compete with the Mercedes-Benz CLA and the BMW 1 Series in the entry-level luxury car segment.
