We have the latest intel and all you need to know about the next-generation Audi A3, coming in 2012.
Audi will bring a bunch of 3- and 4-cylinder engines with the new Audi A3, ranging from 1.2 liters to 2.0 liters. Highlight will be the new Audi S3 with a 300bhp bi-turbo engine. An Audi RS3 is possible, but Audi will check the feedback on the Audi RS3, based on the current generation, next year first.
As mentioned earlier an Audi A3 Sedan is also being considered for the US market.
Other highlights will be a series of new technologies: start-stop technology will come as standard eg. and there will be a lot of optional technologies available like assistance systems and the new Audi MMI, known already from the Audi A8. The maps will also be available from the Audi A8.
Our take: bring it on!
