Audi A1 and A3 to get 3-cylinder engines

The Audi A1 and its larger brother, the A3, will be equipped with three-cylinder engines, as the company has recently announced.

Three-cylinder engines will soon be offered onto the Audi A1 and A3. The announcement has been made by the company’s CEO, Rupert Stadler, when talking with the guys from Auto Express, during the 2014th edition of the Beijing Motor Show.

“In the A1 and the A3, the three-cylinder will be a standard engine in the future, for sure. It gives a good feeling and plenty of torque”, said Rupert Stadler to our source.

According to the Audi official, the A1 will be the first one to get the “tech”, but it will be a while before larger models within the German based automaker’s lineup will be getting the same units. Adding the 3-cylinder engines to other vehicles is compared to the 4-cylinder units which replaced the 6-cylinder ones, a few years back. Rumors are saying that the 3-cylinder engine to be added to the A1 will be the 1.0 liter TSI petrol, from the VW Polo, which will be tweaked for more than 89 HP. A 1.4 TDI will also be added to the range, with the same number of cylinders.
