Audi A3 to be updated next year image

Audi will be performing a facelift for the third generation of the A3 sometimes in 2016.

According to a recent report, the 2017 Audi A3 will be getting a 12.3-inch TFT fully digital instrument cluster, the same one from the third-gen Audi TT and from the R8 supercar. On these two models, this is offered as standard while on the A4 and Q7 is also available, but for some extra money. The technology will be implemented on the updated compact model once this will receive a facelift, next year, and it will set its future customers back for approximately 400 euros. This Virtual Cockpit will be offered across the entire range, eventually, as Ricky Huidi, the Audi electronics boss, said.

As far as other modifications being performed to the 2017 Audi A3, chances are we should expect the updated front and rear bumpers, some new headlight designs and some tweaks made to the cabin. The engine lineup will most likely remain the same. As you probably already know, the compact German car made in Ingolstadt is in its third generation and it has been in production for quite a few years now. The model is currently being offered as a 5-door hatchback, a 3-door hatchback, a 2-door convertible and a four-door sedan. It is riding on the MQB platform made by the Volkswagen Group which is also used on a lot of other vehicles, including the Golf 7, the new Octavia or the Leon.
