Watch this promotional video of a bright red Audi A3 Sedan taking a tour of Budapest, Hungary. The Audi A3 Sedan is the first model to be completely manufactured at the company’s Hungarian plant at Gyor.
Apart from taking us through the beautiful streets of Budapest, the video also highlights the compact sedan’s features. The MMI with touch pad and social networking, Bang & Olufsen music system and napa leather upholstery ensures that you are not short changed while buying Audi’s most affordable sedan.
The third body style of the A3 family, the other two being the 3-door hatchback and 5-door Sportback, primarily targets markets like China and India where premium sedans have a better appeal compared to premium hatchbacks.
The base Audi A3 sedan is powered by a 140PS 1.4 litre TFSI petrol motor. Options of a 1.8 TFSI turbo petrol engine which is good enough for 177PS and a 2.0 litre TDI engine which produces 150PS also exist. A 1.6 litre TDI diesel was recently added to the lineup.
The Audi A3 Sedan will come to India next year and it will compete with the Mercedes CLA which is also expected in 2014.
