Audi has announced the production start for the brand new A3 Sedan at its Hungarian plant in Gyor.
Originally unveiled just a few months ago, the Audi A3 Sedan has hit the production line recently, at the company’s plant in Gyor, Hungary. The model in question will go on sale this summer and it’s basically an evolutionary design of the five-door and three-door hatchback, which will compete with the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The Audi A3 Sedan is 175.5 inches long, 70 inches wide and 55.7 inches tall, which makes it exactly the same size as the original A4, introduced two decades ago.
The final production version of the Audi A3 will get three different engines available for it, at the time of its launch. The first one will be the entry-level 1.4 liter TFSI, with its 140 HP (103 kW) and 250 Nm of torque (184 lb-ft). The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 8.4 seconds and top speed stands at 217 km/h (135 mph) in this version. Average fuel consumption is 4.7 L / 100 km and CO2 emissions stop at 109 g/km. The mid-range is the 1.8 liter TFSI, with its 180 HP (132 kW) and 250 Nm of torque (184 lb-ft). The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes 7.3 seconds, top speed stands at 235 km/h (146 mph), average fuel consumption is 5.6 L / 100 km and CO2 emissions stop at 129 g/km.
The top of the line engine is the 2.0 liter TDI, with its 150 HP (110 kW) and 320 Nm of torque (236 lb-ft). The A3 Sedan in this version can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph). Average fuel consumption is 4.1 L / 100 km and CO2 emissions stop at 107 g/km. These engines will be joined by another 1.4 liter TFSI, a 1.6 liter TDI and a 2.0 liter TDI which is Euro 6 compliant.
