2012 Geneva Motor Show: 2013 Audi A3
You see, we are kind of people who believe that internet is the place where you can get anything you want and unless you are ordinary people, there is no such thing as secret when its already leaked to the internet. After what we refer as “accidental” leaked images of the 2013 Audi A3 quattro, the Ingolstadt automaker still gave proper and official unveiled to its baby hatchback. Audi knows that the market demand and challenge for its new hatchback is far from simple, so the German automaker adds few things to make the 2013 A3 stands out among the other models in the market.
You have seen the 2013 A3 hatchback from its leaked images which means that the overall size is the same, not change at all. What difference is the color where the white changed into bright and intimidating red. Now, we are curious with the engine and performance system because the autoblog.com refers this as the precious baby of Audi. But, looking at the complete name which is “Audi A3 T quattro”, we are not dealing with boring and slow hatchback.
Audi chooses to power up the 2013 A3 hatchback with 1.4L engine with total power output at 122 horsepower and it is one of three different powerplant choices such as the 1.8L TFSI which offers 180 horsepower and the 2.0L TDI which unleashes 150 horsepower. All engines are equipped with front-wheel drive but the quattro version offers not only more powerful but also alternative-fuel powerplants. The transmission choices are either 5-speed manual or 6-speed S-tronic.
