Audi is not going to delay the start of sales of the new A3.
The car will be available in several body styles.
In addition to the versions of the A3, S3 and RS3 sedan will also be offered a 5-door hybrid variant of the hatchback called the A3 Sportback E-Tron. Compared to the third generation, the new hatchback has grown in length by about 3 cm.
We can assume that a little more would be the sedan.
Range of engines novelties, probably, will not differ from that which is proposed for the third generation of the model, but they can be refined, making mild hybrids in favor of ecology.
Model S Line will probably get the same powerplant, which is equipped with a 45 crossover Audi Q3 and Q3 S Line 45.
This 2-liter 4-cylinder petrol TFSI engine capacity of 190 HP or 240 HP, which will allow the car to compete with the BMW 228i Gran Coupe and Mercedes-Benz CLA. In addition, the new A3 will continue to be offered with all-wheel drive system.
Audi S3 Sportback new generation for the European market will receive a capacity of 306 HP as opposed to 296 HP, and the power of the motor version of the RS 3 will increase to 400 HP, allowing the car to compete with Mercedes—AMG CLA 45 and the BMW M2 Gran Coupe.
The hybrid version of the A3 Sportback E—Tron, will get a new 1.4-litre engine, thanks to which the total capacity of the power plant will be about 240 HP
It is 36 HP more than the Audi A3 Sportback E-Tron 1.4 TS tronic Premium 2018.
