2016 Audi A3 Hatchback

Ever get the feeling that automakers aren’t really listening to what it is that you want in an automobile?… Well, Audi is. Following what it calls “an outpouring of enthusiasts’ support,” the German automaker has announced that it is bringing the new, 2016 A3 Sportback to the US under diesel power, in the summer of 2015.

Unveiled today at the New York Auto Show, the new A3 TDI Sportback joins an expanding range of A3 models available Stateside. Whereas the Sportback hatch was until now only slated to be offered in E-Tron hybrid form, and the TDI only as a sedan, this model combines the bodystyle of the former with the power of the latter. The new TDI slots into the family alongside the gasoline-powered A3 and S3 sedans and A3 Cabriolet as well.

Original Audi A3 was released in 1996. It is a compact luxury car and it was the first small car from this German manufacturer after almost two decades (first after 1978 Audi 50). Current model is in its third generation, which was released in 2012. Although generation-change is still far away, company prepares some new things for 2016 Audi A3. According to latest information, it is expected that new model will be offered in hatchback body style once again, after few years of break.

As with the previous A3 TDI, the 2016 model is front-wheel drive and the brand has yet to say a peep about Quattro’s Norseman-like qualities in the winter. A new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel developing 150 horsepower (up 10 over its predecessor’s mill) pairs with the gasoline A3’s six-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic. Audi didn’t divulge torque or fuel-economy figures, but considering the outgoing model’s 236 lb-ft and hefty EPA-rated 30 mpg city and 42 mpg highway ratings, we’re sure the final numbers will go up when the car goes on sale next summer. An A3 TDI sedan will debut stateside later this year, along with an e-tron plug-in hybrid version of the A3 Sportback sometime after.

2016 Audi A3 Specs

When it is about basics of this car, there will not be too many changes, compared to current model. The 2016 Audi A3 will be based on MQB platform. The only big novelty is that it will be offered in four body styles now. Beside sedan and convertible, it will be available as 3 door and 5-door hatchback too. Rest of the things will remain pretty much the same. There will be three trim levels in offer Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. Interior of the 2016 Audi A3 will remain pretty much unchanged. It will be equipped with plenty of hi-tech features. Some of the highlights are Audi’s MMI interface to control the optional navigation system, audio entertainment and interior functions, Audi’s Drive Select, WiFI, smarthphone integration and many others.

The A3 TDI Sportback’s standard and available safety features should also mirror the sedan, and include a rearview camera, blind-spot detection, lane departure warning, frontal collision warning and automatic braking, front and rear parking sensors and an automated parking system.

With both diesel and hybrid powertrains, the A3 Sportback recognizes only a few rivals. The Lexus CT 200h is a hybrid hatchback that offers excellent fuel economy and only slightly less power than the A3 Sportback. For similar cargo utility and luxury appointments, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is a notable (and notably more expensive) alternative.

“The A3 TDI Sportback has an incredibly passionate and loyal fan base, this new version has been one of our most requested models since the announcement of the new A3 family,” said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. “This new A3 TDI Sportback combines excellent fuel economy with advanced technology and utility and will make a stunning addition to the already impressive A3 family.”

The A3 TDI Sportback will join the newly launched all-new A3 family, which will be introduced over the next 18 months the Audi A3 Sedan, Audi A3 Cabriolet, A3 TDI clean diesel sedan, the high-performance S3 Sedan and the A3 Sportback e-tron® gasoline electric hybrid (PHEV). These vehicles are redefining the standards of the entry level premium market with new innovative technologies and the detailed craftsmanship found in larger flagship Audi sedans.

In addition to advanced technology, the Audi A3 TDI Sportback will offer the consumer the fuel efficiency of the iconic Audi TDI clean diesel powertrain. This will include a 150 horsepower 2.0 TDI® clean diesel mated to the standard 6-speed S tronic® transmission. This transmission provides the driver immense shifting flexibility and driving pleasure with smooth, dynamic acceleration and virtually no interruption to the power flow.

2016 Audi A3 Engine

This manufacturer is known for wide offer of engine and 2016 definitely won’t be an exception. It will be available with several petrol and diesel engines, but it will be available as hybrid too. The top offers will be those with 2.0 liter TFSI engine (220 hp and 258 lb-ft) and 2.0 liter TDI (181 hp and 280 lb-ft). The second mentioned, diesel engine will be not only powerful but also with great fuel economy. It is expected that this variant will reach 40 mpg. The 2016 A3 will be offered with three transmissions 6-speed manual and 6-speed and 7-speed automatic S Tronic gearboxes.

There’s a catch, however. The A3 Sportback is available only as a gasoline-electric hybrid or with a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder. And it’s only available with front-wheel-drive. The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel in the TDI Sportback makes 150 horsepower and an estimated 236 pound-feet of torque, and pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. Audi hasn’t announced fuel economy estimates yet, but figure close to 40 mpg combined (the last A3 TDI achieved 34 mpg combined, while a similar engine in the current Volkswagen Jetta TDI delivers 42 mpg combined).
