The India-bound Audi A3 sedan has been revealed officially and it comes with a ton of changes.
The all-new Audi A3 Sportback made its debut few weeks back and now the German automaker has officially revealed the new A3 sedan. The 2021 Audi A3 sedan gets a lot of significant changes to the outside, inside, and under the hood.
The 2021 Audi A3 is based on the MQB Evo platform and it is 40 mm longer, 10 mm wider and 10 mm taller than the outgoing car. The design sees an evolution over the older model and the body gets some sharp elements much in line with some of the newer Audis.
The interior also sees a big change in terms of layout and equipment. Gone is the basic design of the older A3 and now you get a very futuristic-looking dashboard. There’s a 10.1-inch MMI touchscreen infotainment system, 10.25-inch digital instrument console, Audi Pre-Sense Front, Adaptive Cruise Assist, Efficiency Assist, Exit Warning, Cross Traffic Warning and a host of other features.
In international markets, the Audi A3 sedan will get two engine options – a 1.5-litre TSI unit and a 1.5-litre TDI mill. Both the engines churn out 150 HP and get a 7-speed S-Tronic gearbox. The petrol engine is also offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The TSI DCT variant gets a 48V mild-hybrid system too.
The 2021 Audi A3 sedan will be launched in India too. It is expected to arrive towards the end of 2020 or in early 2021. It will rival the Mercedes A-Class Limousine.
