Engine renewal adds to the technical improvement

Audi is one of those brands who not only make things seem fashionable and up to date from the outside, the inside is also kept that way. There have been some very minor changes for the year 2019 which might be visible to the previous owners but there is a change in the formula.

This is a mid-life facelift and not a major one but still, somebody changes are there for the front. The engine side has most of the changes and for the users, it is good news. This does not mean that the previous ones were not up to mark.

But the new ones or the renewed ones will certainly let the occupiers enjoy some more. Audi A3 engines are one of the best when it comes to performance and the new line up is certainly going to enhance the technical side.

The exterior styling plus engine upgrade is going to become a good combination. But the thing is that the rivals are there to defend their places and those are strong contenders.

There is also a new platform to give a much better base for the future. You also get Audi supply and fit service in the market so that engine replacement can be done at the same place which adds to the handiness of owning one.

For more power choose all-wheel drive engine

Audi A3 comes with a single unit but have two different outputs. It is a four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-litre diesel engine. The power it generates depends upon which side you go for. If the front-wheel drive is selected then the 187 bhp version is available with 220 lb-ft.

There is also a choice of all-wheel drive and with more stability on rough or difficult surfaces there comes added power of 220 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This latter one is said to complete the 0-60 mph run in just 5.6 seconds and just imagine how much speed and excitement is going to be there.

The lower powered gets a dual clutch 7 speed automatic gearbox and the second one has a 6-speed dual clutch transmission paired with it. There is however some delay while moving from nil but when the momentum starts to build things becomes smooth and quick.

Apart from the original ones you can also have reconditioned Audi A3 engines in the market to tackle any engine problems with ease.

Digging the driving side

For a luxury car like this, there has to be good handling and ride comfort to make it really feel like one as appearance alone cannot do the core. And there is just the perfect ride and handling here which one expects.

You do not have to put much effort into directing the steering wheel. It is kept light but still with proper feedback from the road. There are right placements from it and even in worst weather conditions, it will not fail to keep the car stable especially in the all-wheel-drive version.

With this nature wheel, it becomes easier for the driver to park the car in tight spaces and turning purpose. So sharp turns are also not a problem and the steering is tight over here to control the movements.

At straight roads, the suspension plays its role perfectly making the ride perfectly comfortable and agreeable.

Cabin environment

How it feels to be in this Audi is amazing. Whether you are in the sedan form or the convertible form in the Cabriolet model there is nothing missing inside. The front part plus driver’s seat placement is just perfect.

There are the right space, correct placing and easy reach control to make it perfect for the one driving. But the rear passengers may not be very happy with the legroom. As some other rivals, the problem persists over here also.

The boot space is also not much spacious and cannot carry much luggage. Whether a bachelor’s car or a family one this factor always gets criticism. But apart from that, there is a dashboard with clear space and not much cluster.

The up placed infotainment screen gives clarity and ease of access. The seats are comfortable with good grip at the front. Only two people can easily be seated at the back the middle one will have a serious problem for placing the legs.
