2017 Audi A3 to be launched in India tomorrow

2017 Audi A3 to be launched in India tomorrow

The 2017 Audi A3 will be launched for the Indian market tomorrow. This is a mid-life update for the German automaker’s entry-level vehicle and includes both mechanical and cosmetic changes. It is available both in petroland diesel avatars and we have test-driven both models ahead of their launch.

The biggest change is that the 1.8-litre unit powering the petrol model has been replaced by a more frugal 1.4-litre producing 150bhp/250Nm of torque. This engine has been mated to a seven-speed DSG sending power to the front wheels. The diesel variant, on the other hand, is the 2.0-litre unit in the 35TDI state of tune producing 141bhp/320Nm with power going to the front wheels via a seven-speed DSG.

This facelifted A3 gets a revised grille, tweaked headlamps as well as tail lamps as a part of the 2017 update package. The alloy wheels also sport a new design but, retain the same front-heavy and stubby-rear silhouette which defined the model when it was launched in 2014. The cabin is an all-black affair with features like climate control, seven-inch screen for MMI (multimedia interface), panoramic sunroof, parking sensors and a wireless charging point in the front armrest. 

We believe that this 2017 Audi A3 will be priced at Rs 1 lakh to Rs 1.2 lakh over the current model. It takes on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLA, Volvo V40 and the BMW 1 Series. Of this, its main rival is the CLA sedan which was also updated recently.
