Audi Lifts the Veils Off the All-New A3 and S3 Sedans

|

Audi has released photos and information on the A3 Sedan and its high-performance version, the 300hp S3 Sedan, both of which will go on sale in North America in 2014 (as 2015 models).

Based on the latest A3 architecture, the compact sedan is 4.46-meters (14.63 ft) long and has a 2.64-meter (8.66 ft) wheelbase. The car is 1.80-meters (5.91 ft) wide or 11mm (0.43 in) wider than the A3 Sportback, while its height (1.42 meters/4.66 ft) is 9mm (0.35 in) lower than that of the five-door model. Trunk capacity is 425 liters (15 cubic feet).

The design is typical Audi, with the signature headlights identical to those on the A3 and A3 Sportback, and a profile that the carmaker describes as “a cross between a classic three-box concept and the coupé philosophy.”

At launch in Europe, the A3 Sedan will be available with three four-cylinder engines – the 1.4 TFSI and 1.8 TFSI gasoline units and the 2.0 TDI diesel. The 1.4 TFSI develops 138hp (140PS) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) and is fitted with the COD (cylinder on demand) system that deactivates two cylinders. Combined fuel consumption is 4.7 liters/100 km (50.05 US mpg), with CO2 emissions being 109 g/km. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 8.4 seconds, and top speed is 217 km/h (134.84 mph).

The 1.8 TFSI delivers 177hp (180PS) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) and offers the A3 Sedan an average fuel economy of 5.6 liters/100 km (42 US mpg), equivalent to 129 g CO2/km. 0 to 100 km/h takes 7.3 seconds, with top speed being 235 km/h (146 mph).

Finally, the 2.0 TDI produces 148hp (150PS) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. It is the most economical engine in the A3 Sedan range, with only 4.1 liters/100 km (57.37 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 107 g/km. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) takes 8.7 seconds, while top speed is 220 km/h (136.7 mph). Depending on the engine, either a manual six-speed gearbox or the dual-clutch S tronic is used.

The interior of the A3 Sedan (the same from the A3 Sportback) is available with an array of options and materials. There’s the new modular infotainment system (MIB), consisting of MMI Navigation plus, a 64 GB hard drive, DVD drive, whole-word voice control and a high-resolution 7-inch-screen.

The A3 Sedan will be available in Europe late this summer, for a base price of around €25,000 ($32,150) for the 1.4 TFSI model.

North American sales will begin in the first quarter of 2014, with the regular A3 to be offered with three engine choices, including two gasoline units, the 1.8-liter TFSI and 2.0-liter TFSI, and the 2.0-liter TDI clean diesel.

Audi S3 Sedan: 300 horsepower, 0-62 mph in 4.9 seconds

Just like the S3 and S3 Sportback, the high-performance all-wheel-drive S3 Sedan is powered by the 2.0-liter TFSI engine developing 296hp (300PS) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 4.9 seconds with the S tronic and 5.3 seconds with the manual gearbox. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). Combined fuel consumption is 6.9 liters/100 km (34.10 US mpg) with the S tronic or 7 liters (33.6 US mpg) with the manual.

The S3 Sedan will be offered in North America from mid-2014.

Mis compañeros! Esta es una buena noticia! Ahora, el más popular en la red el Galaxy S3 i9300 Teléfono Sólo € 99,99.He adquirido este maravilloso telefono y todo perfecto, Esta es mi primera vez que compra en este sitio, Estoy orgulloso de decir que este es el más exitoso y el más satisfecho con los productos que nunca en compras en línea.y la primera vez que compra un teléfono de marca no. (utilizar para tener un T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3) Este teléfono es impresionante!Vi a mis amigos lo están utilizando, la pantalla grande, ultra-delgado teléfono inteligente ambiente, también estoy muy envidioso de, siempre quiere comprar este teléfono, pero demasiado caro en la tienda.


En la caja incluía lo típico, el móvil, cargador y auriculares, todo muy bien empaquetado y en perfectas condiciones. Decir que el móvil traía un poco de batería y estuve trasteandolo durante una hora. Tras esa hora de testeo, puedo decir que la fluidez del teléfono es muy buena, anteriormente habia pasado por mis manos otro terminal chino con un procesador monocore, y este con el mtk 6577 a 1,2GHrz es una delicia.Tiene una cámara de 8MP una enorme pantalla de alta definición.Me ha llegado rapidísimo, en perfecto estado y es mejor de lo que esperaba. Ahora, a comprobar la durabilidad, que es lo que me asusta, pero tiene muy buena pinta. Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. Se puede poner totalmente en español y se pueden deshabilitar tod。una maravilla,través de mi propia experiencia,Los españoles más barata y más popular.También los productos de mayor venta en la tienda. yo realmente lo recomiendo encarecidamente a todo el mundo. es muy creíble. http://0.nu/egdi

Wow, the trolls are out today. If you look at Audi's sales figures you would see that they are doing something right. If you guys could afford one, you'd gladly drive one everyday.

Wow that is a nice Jetta ! Ooops ! LOL

Why do all the new Audis get more and more boring? Is it a trend to make such a neutral design? I miss the days when the made such cars like the pre-facelift R8 and the previous RS6 Avant and RS4 Convertible. Oh, and naturally the good old Quattro! R.I.P interesting Audis!
