Audi A3 can be considered as a long-lived in the world car market. For sixteen years of existence of the line, the fans of the German automotive industry has enjoyed the third generation of this model, if it is not become the undisputed leader in the sales of premium, there is no doubt that it was one of top three.
The new generation Audi A3 8V 2013, presented in March 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show, was a worthy successor product of Audi which accumulated early traditions of the company in itself, however, all the technological innovations of modern times.
Audi A3 - compact, stylish, sporty and sophisticated at the same time. At first, the markets will be provided with three-door and five-door hatchbacks, and in the future, of course, the manufacturer plans to supply with the other modifications - at least another sedan and convertible. Exterior of the updated Audi A3 is attractive: the sculptural front view, high grille with slightly beveled corners, front lights as close as possible to the grid, so that creates the appearance of a smooth transition. They come on the wings, which for Audi A3 has been relatively innovation in the design of the exterior. Add LED strip on the bumper, and in the expanded configuration - multifunction xenon headlights. Rear car is no less stylish and recognizable: taillights became broad and flat, and their shape has changed slightly - now beveled toward the center.

At the start of sales of the Audi A3 will be equipped with either a gasoline TFSI (1,4 l, 122 hp, 200 Nm 1.8 liter, 180 hp, 250 Nm, respectively) or TDI diesel 2 liter pulling on the 143 hp and having a torque of 320 Nm. However, such a modest proposal - just zeroing, and later the engine number will increase significantly. In the meantime, it's worth noting that this propulsion systems have undergone significant upgrades - they are now all equipped with direct injection, turbocharged, thermal management systems, and "start-stop". Weight decreased, and fuel consumption was reduced by 12%. With regard to CAT, diesel and 122-horsepower gasoline completed six mechanics, and a little more powerful TFSI (1,8 l) - seven-speed automatic gearbox S-tronic. Over time, once again, planned expansion of a number of modifications and combinations thereof PPC engines.
