Audi A3 Sedan, everyone was expecting to see a sedan version of the Audi A3. A3 is the leader of the luxury hatchback market. Even the presence of Mercedes A-Class or the BMW 1-Series could not manage to take the place of the Audi A3. Literally, if you want a luxury hatchback you first consider the Audi A3. However, until this time people were stuck with the Audi A3 hatchback or jump to Volkswagen Jetta. However, Jetta is not at the same level with the Audi A3.
The Audi A3 offers new standards to market such as; Bang & Olufsen sound system and leather upholstery are some of the improvements for the competition.
A3 is powered by these engines: 1,4 TFSI 4-cylinder petrol engine with 140 HP / 250 Nm of torque; 8,4 seconds to reach 100 km/h and top speed of 213 km/h. 1,8 TFSI 4-cylinder petrol engine with 180 HP / 250 Nm of torque; 7,3 seconds to reach 100 km/kh and 235 km/h top speed. And the diesel is; 2-lt TDI four-cylinder with 150 HP / 320 Nm of torque. 8,7 seconds are enough to reach 100 km/h and top speed is 220 km/h.
Lastly, if Audi does not improve the interior space of the upcoming Audi A4; A3 Sedan may catch some of the customers from the A4. Because, A3 Sedan looks quite similar to A4 and if the legroom and interior is not that different, you may see some customers shifting from A4 to A3 Sedan.
Also, I really wonder who is going to order Bang & Olufsen in an A3. This option is way too expensive!
