The Audi A3 Sedan will launch prior to the festive season this year.

Dealers of Audi India have started the initial communication with interested customers, thus throwing light on the car’s details. To begin with, the A3 Sedan would be offered with a single engine option, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI engine. This diesel engine will be offered in its 150 hp power state (a 184 hp variant is offered in Europe) producing 340 Nm of torque. A petrol engine may also join the lineup a few months later to offer a wider range to customers.

The 2.0-liter TDI engine sends power to the front wheels via a 6-speed S-Tronic automatic gearbox. Initially, the A3 Sedan will come only with an automatic gearbox, though the company may decide to launch a manual variant in the future as an entry-level model. A similar strategy was seen with the Q3 crossover, wherein the entry-level Q3 S was launched last year.

Dealers inform that the A3 Sedan will come in two variants: Premium and Premium+. The Premium+ would see additional features such as Xenon Plus headlights, a sunroof and a more premium stereo.

Bookings for the A3 Sedan have not started yet, but we are told on-road prices would be in the region of INR 30-35 lakhs for the higher variant.
