The Audi A3 now has a more powerful 2.0-litre TDI engine in its line-up.
Emitting only 108g/km of CO2, returning 68.9mpg and capable of 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds, the new 182bhp 2.0-litre engine is available on all A3 and A3 Sportback models, with the Saloon to follow later.
Audi will also offer the new engine with the Quattro all-wheel-drive system, but only in Sport and S-line specification.
Another new feature on the A3 is LED headlights. Audi claim the new headlights achieve ‘daylight-like levels of illumination’ and says are the first to be fitted to a car in the premium compact class.
The headlights are available for every A3 and S3 variant and cost owners who spec SE and Sport models £2,000. They come as part of a package, which includes LED rear lights, light and rain sensors and LED ambient interior lighting. In S line and S3 models the LED headlights are available as a stand-alone option that costs £795.
Order books for the Audi A3 are now open with prices starting from £24,375 and rising to £30,055. First deliveries are expected in September.
