Audi A3: Winter spy shots!

Audi A3

Here are brand new winter spy shots of the next-generation Audi A3.

The third iteration of the A3 series will mark a switch to the Volkswagen Group’s brand-new flexible MQB architecture that will be shared with a myriad of models including the next generations of the VW Golf and even the Passat.

Under the sheetmetal, the new A3’s powertrain lineup will be exclusively turbocharged offering a variety of gasoline and diesel engines that will top out with a high-performance 2.0-liter TFSI in the sporty S3 and an even more powerful inline-five for the RS3.

The new A3 will also be available with the VW Group’s newly revealed 140HP turbocharged 1.4-liter TFSI gasoline engine with a cylinder deactivation system that enables it to work on two cylinders on partial loads to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions.
