Audi will have a powerpacked display at the Auto Expo 2014 and the star attraction will be the A3 sedan. The A3 sedan as the name suggests ill be slotted below the Audi A4 sedan and will be the cheapest Audi sedan available. The A3 sedan will be smaller than the A4 and will rival the Mercedes CLA which also will be displayed at the Expo. The A3 sedan has a 2.64 meter long wheelbase and an overall length of 4.46 meters.
It shares a lot of design with the A3 hatch but the transition to sedan has been a seamless one and it looks good. It is a typical Audi design and is compact but muscular when seen in the flesh. Inside expect the same excellent quality interiors though space would be less than the A4.
Engine options would be the 1.8 turbo petrol and 2.0 diesel with the 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox on offer. There will not be any manual gearbox option like the Audi Q3S. The big question is the price and we expect a price-tag from Rs 25- 27 lakh.
There will also be the recently launched Audi RS7, the facelifted A8 luxury sedan, R18 e-tron Quattro and special editions of the Q3, Q5, Q7 range of SUVs. Without a doubt all eyes will be on the A3 sedan and this is one of the most important launches that will be undertaken by Audi in India.
