Audi is now offering the 2013 A3 with a 1.2-liter TFSI engine in the United Kingdom.
The revised power unit is capable of developing 105 HP (77 kW) and 175 Nm (129 lb-ft) of torque. Linked to the 6-speed manual, the coupe will reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 10.3 seconds (0.7s quicker), while CO2 emissions stand at 114 g/km (13g less).
Regardless if it's fitted with the standard manual or with the optional twin-clutch 7-speed S tronic, the 2013 Audi A3 powered by the 1.2 TFSI engine can return 57.6 mpg UK (47.9 mpg US or 4.9 liters / 100 km), making it 6 mpg UK (5 mpg US) more efficient than before.
Prices start from 17,905 GBP for the 6-speed in SE trim and go up to 22,760 GBP for the S line version equipped with the S tronic gearbox. The three-door is already available on order and will go on sale this May. It will be joined by the five-door Sportback variant in the summer.
