Audi AG has announced the European market’s second-generation Audi A3 sedan, followed in the coming year by an India launch. The new Audi A3 model is based on technical changes made recently by the German carmaker in the Audi A3 Sportback.
At the beginning of the summer of 2020, a lightweight 4-door model is digitally and fully connected from details to the support systems. The sporty and sleek feature of the Audi A3 sedan remains obvious by its predecessor, as new Audi A3 currently has a length of 40 mm, a width of 20 mm and a weight of 10 mm compared to the previous one.

Nevertheless, the wheelbase is also the same. With an additional 20 mm headroom at the front and even some elbow room, the increase in size means more space inside. Around 415 liters, the boot volume is almost similar.
The concept also evolves with a wide Singleframe, flanked by striking headlights, and is covered by a wave grill. They shape trapezoidal angles drawn downwards from the outside. The top tier features Matrix LED and modern optical lighting solutions composed of a 15-segment LED pixel array.
The short rear end is accentuated by the body lines which extend across the sill to the rear lights before it reaches the rear wheel arch. The roofline descends dramatically from the B-pillar like a coupe and ends in a spoiler on the rear.
In the cockpit of the 2021 Audi A4 sedan, the driver is fully centered, as the instrument panel is slightly tilted towards the driver with a central MMI touch screen. This has a diagonal of 10.1 inches and is easy to operate. Default is handwriting and natural language processing and can potentially depend on a cloud capability.
Even the simple model is visual, while the Audi Virtual Cockpit plus measures 12.3 in and provides three different views, including sporty, inclined-digit, advanced graphics. The Audi Virtual Cockpit Plus is seamlessly laid out.
The MMI Navigation plus is the top infotainment system in the latest A3 Sedan that uses the modular infotainment architecture of the third generation. The Audi pre sense front feature, crash monitoring, adaptive cruise assistance, performance service, exit warnings, cross-traffic assistance, and surround-view cameras are included in the driver assistance packages.
With two TFSI engines and one TDI engine, the latest A3 Sedan can be selected for sale. The 35 TFSI is a 1,5-liter direct injection engine with 150bhp. It is available in two models, with a recently designed six-speed hand transmission and a 7-speed Tronic quickly changing.

A 7-speed S Tronic is also available for the 2.0 TDI with 150bhp, which enables transmission adjustments with a new shift-by-wire feature.
