Audi A3 to Combine Innovation with Style

The new A3, which will debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, is a high-tech car full of innovations in all areas, says Audi. Versions with hybrid and alternative drive systems such as natural gas and Audi e-gas are currently in development.

A version with an efficient 1.6 TDI engine will launch on the market in 2012; it consumes just 3.8 liters of diesel/100 km (61.90 US mpg), which is equivalent to 99 g/CO2 (159.33 g/mile).

According to the company, Audi ultra lightweight technology has helped to trim weight in the body of the appealing three-door car – compared to the previous model; the new A3 is now 80 kg (176.37 lb) lighter.

The chassis is tuned for a sporty and agile driving style. The engines are powerful yet highly efficient, the interior offers an ambience of dynamic style. In driver assistance systems and infotainment, the new A3 offers a portfolio of technologies that redefines standards in the segment. Audi announced it today, March 6.

The car’s styling visualizes the sporty character of the new A3; it gives the 4.24 meter (13.91 feet) long three-door model a powerful stance on the road. Sharp edges provide the outlines for dynamically curved sheet-metal surfaces.

The overall vehicle length was kept identical to the previous model, while the wheelbase grew to 2.60 meters (8.53 feet), and the angle of the C-pillars was made low like that on a coupe. The single-frame radiator grille that is typical of Audi dominates the look of the front end.
