Audi's not discussing the engines, but the capacity is likely to extend from 1.2 to 2.0 liters in both petrol and diesel. The 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI slated for use on incoming model are already part of the currently running models, Vento and Jetta. The petrols likewise are from the current models in the VW group.

Looks good, compare it with what we showed at the Auto Expo ... Let see what 2013+ will bring.

Perschke sounds bullish about the future of the A3 but he's careful not to give any details on its launch, capacity, body style etc. The model likely to reach India is the four-door as the concept showcased at the Auto Expo concept used for India had a boot and four doors.
