Audi A3 Facelift Launched in India at Rs 35.50 lakh

Audi India has launched the new facelift Audi A3. The 2017 model year A3 comes with a new engine and, of course, updated styling.

The prices for the 2017 Audi A3 start at Rs 35.50 lakh for the base petrol version. The more popular diesel, however, costs a tad more at Rs 32.30 lakh ex-showroom Delhi.

So, the new A3 gets a revised front end with edgier headlights and more sculpted rear end. Like all modern Audis, the new A3 gets a more pronounced grille.

A new addition is the 1.4-liter turbo-petrol engine with 150hp. This replaces the old 1.8-liter unit. The new motor is designed to shut down two of its cylinders depending on the driving conditions. It helps save fuel and reduces emissions. The 2.0-liter 143hp TDI diesel remains unchanged for 2017.
