Audi has announced a series of revisions for the A3 lineup sold on the UK market.
Audi UK is now offering a more powerful version of the 2.0-liter TDI engine for the A3 and A3 Sportback. Set to arrive in the Sedan version later on, the mill is available with a 184 HP (135 kW) output in addition to the existing 150 HP (110 kW) version. It's compatible with both front-wheel drive and quattro all-wheel drive systems, but only for the Sport or S line specifications.
When mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, the A3 2.0 TDI 184 HP will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 145 mph (233 km/h). In this configuration it will return 68.9 mpg UK (57.3 mpg US or 4.1 liters / 100 km) in the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 108 g/km.
Pricing for the A3 with this engine kicks off at 24,375 GBP and goes all the way up to 30,055 GBP. It's already available on order (three and Sportback versions) with deliveries commencing in September.
Audi UK is also selling for SE and Sport versions an LED lights package worth 2,000 GBP which brings LED headlights, taillights, ambient interior lighting, along with light and rain sensors. For S line and S3 models these goodies can be had as a stand-alone option which will set you back 795 GBP.
