Systematic lightweight design has brought the curb weight (without driver) of the new Audi A3 as a 1.0 TFSI* down to just 1,150 kg (2535.3 lb) – the best value in its class. In the areas of the A- and B-pillars, the roof line and the floor, hot-stamped and heat-formed steel components to form a strongly bonded composite. High- and ultra-high-strength steels are used in many other areas of the body. The engine hood and fenders are made of aluminum, for a weight saving of more than nine kilograms (19.8 lb).
The body of the new Audi A3 is impact-resistant, highly rigid and acoustically comfortable; a sound-absorbing windshield is standard equipment. Numerous other measures reduce the interior noise even at high speeds.
