Spy Shots – Audi A3
The spy photographers from Auto Express have managed to take a few photos with the upcoming new generation of the Audi A3. They took pictures with the three-door version of the car, one of the four body styles that the A3 will get. We can easily observe that the car will adopt a more progressive waistline and sharper lines.
The headlight design of the new model will be more dynamic, similar to the style implemented on the brand new Q3 baby SUV. This theme is continued at the back of the car where the design of the taillight steps up towards the waistline and wraps around the A3’s side. As for the front bumper, this one too looks to be more aggressive, but this might be available only with the S line package.
The new generation of the Audi A3 is based on the MQB platform developed by the Volkswagen Group, the one which we’ve talked about yesterday, a platform that we will see in the upcoming Golf 7. The new A3 is going to be lighter than the outgoing model and it also promises to be safer.
As far as the engines are concerned, the new A3 will be offered with a bunch of power units ranging from the 4-cylinder 1.2-liter unit to the powerful 2.0-liter gasoline engine that pumps out 211 hp. Aside from these, there will also be a couple of 1.6- and 2.0-liter diesels. Auto Express believes that the car will also be sold in a more frugal TDIe hybrid variant.
The new Audi A3 is scheduled to make its first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show which will be organized next month. The price of the new version is estimated to be a little bit higher in comparison to the outgoing model.
