Audi A3 Receives Upgrades

It appears that Audi UK will be making some cool changes to their Audi A3 models, which includes a more reliant diesel-fueled engine and LED lights. Sounds very promising!

The new 2-liter TDI engine produces 181HP (135kW) and a torque of 380nM (280 lb/ft), much higher than the previous version of 150HP (110kW). It can complete 0-62mph (110 km/h) in just 7.3 seconds and has a top speed of 145mph (233km/h), all while giving the A3 68.4mpg UK. The diesel engine will be available for both the six-speed manual transmission front-wheel drive and the six-speed S tronic twin-clutch with all-wheel drive. This engine also follows the 2014 EU6 emission standards by emitting 108g/kim of carbon dioxide. The diesel engines will be available for the A3 three-door and five-door Sportback versions with the four-door coming a little bit later. 

Audi UK will also be applying their LED system to the A3. This package for the SE and Sport models, which costs 2000 GBP, includes LED headlights, rearlights, interior ambient lighting, and light and rain sensors. For the S line and the S3 models, the LEDs can be purchased as stand-alone options priced at 795 GBP.

The Audi A3 models will be available beginning in September ranging from 24,375 GBP to 30,055 GBP.
