The new 2017 Audi A3 entry-level sedan is all set to be launched in India on April 6, 2017. The new Audi A3 receives hardly any changes to the dimensions - 4.24 metres in length with a wheelbase of 2.60 metres.
The facelifted Audi A3's single frame grille highlights sharper lines and is broader, and its headlights are flatter, with unique outer silhouettes.
Under the hood, the new A3 will be powered a new 1.4-litre TFSI engine that churns out 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. As for the diesel unit, it continues to house the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that produces 139bhp and 320Nm of torque.
While the diesel unit is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, the petrol mill is paired to a 7-speed S-Tronic gearbox. For a complete analysis, read our test drive review of the facelifted Audi A3.
As for the interiors, the cabin remains mostly similar to the outgoing model with some tweaks. The dashboard design remains the same with the screen that pops up from the centre, along with the jet turbine inspired AC vents.
Interestingly, Audi is not offering the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto; however, you do get navigation and a reverse camera. The 2017 Audi A3 will rival the likes of Mercedes-Benz CLA upon launch in the country.
