The new Audi A3 sedan is close to entering the fast emerging Indian car market. The new Audi A3 sedan India launch will take place on 7th this month and with its launch, the new car will become the cheapest Audi sedan in India. Hence, it won’t be wrong to say that the upcoming model would spearhead Audi India’s charge against Mercedes and BMW, two of its major competitors in our country.
The new car benefits from an exterior design that is typical of modern-day Audi sedans and there are very good chances that the new model will become one of the most successful models from this German luxury car maker’s stable. The new Audi A3 sedan made its first appearance in India at 2014 Indian Auto Expo in February this year. Initially, the new A3 sedan won’t have any direct rival in India, as the launch of Mercedes CLA sedan’s non-AMG petrol and diesel variants will happen only by the end of this year. The new Audi A3 sedan price in India is being expected to be pegged around Rs. 28 lakhs mark.
The Audi A3 sedan in India will go on sale in both petrol and diesel engine variants. The petrol variant will be called as 40TFSI and will be powered by a 1.8 TFSI turbocharged direct injection engine that will have a max power of 177 bhp. The diesel engine variant, which should bring much more sales than its petrol counterpart, will be named as 35TDI and will have a max power of 141 bhp. Readers may note that it would be the first time that Audi India would use its new dynamic factor nomenclature, under which the car will be named as per their performance.
