Audi has unveiled the brand’s most fuel-efficient production model. With 81 kW (110 hp) of power output, the Audi A3 1.6 TDI ultra consumes just 3.2 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (73.50 US mpg). This equates to an astounding 85 grams of CO2 emissions per kilometer (136.79 g/mile). This versatile marvel of fuel economy is now for sale. Customers can take delivery of the Audi A3 1.6 TDI ultra starting in September. The base price in Germany will be 25,200 euros.
Audi is the first carmaker to bring the fast LTE data transfer standard to the car with full integration. It can be ordered as an option in the Audi S3 Sportback from July, and in all other model variants of the premium compact from early November. LTE technology is very important for Audi connect, the networking of the car with the driver, the Internet and the environment.
Sporty, versatile and progressive – Audi presents the new A3 Sportback. The compact five-door model with the spacious luggage compartment breaks new ground in terms of vehicle weight thanks to ultra lightweight construction technology. The engines are powerful and efficient. The infotainment and driver assistance systems available in the new A3 Sportback set new standards in the premium compact segment.
