Audi India will reveal its special new A3 Sedan Concept to India at the competitive price of Rs 20 lakhs. Earlier, the concept model of Audi A3 had been showcased at the Auto Motorund Sport by Czech manufacturer. The model is ready to be showcased at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show and will soon be in production. The new car is developed based on the Volkswagen’s MQB platform.
The next-generation 2012 Audi A3 will be available in four different variants – the conventional three-door hatch, two-door Cabriolet, a new four-door sedan and five-door Sportback. The car measures 4440 mm long, 1840 mm wide and just 1390 mm high.
The Audi A3 sedan is powered by 2.5 litre five-cylinder petrol engine which uses turbocharging and FSI to generate max power of 408 hp and max torque of 480 Nm (between 1600 and 5300 rpm). The engine sends power to all four wheels through Audi’s Quattro system and seven-speed S tronic transmission.
Audi claims that the new A3 sedan can hit 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds. There is also a rumor that the company has plans to introduce the A3 hatchback as well during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
