Audi A3 Sportback re-facelifted for 2013
In today’s bit of non-news, Audi has launched the latest version of their infinitely-boring Audi A3 Sportback. As expected, it looks like the old model with some new headlights photoshopped in.
Despite its looks, it’s more than just a facelift. The car has lost some weight and gained some interior space, while keeping external dimensions almost the same.
Depending on market, the petrol engines available at launch are a 122 hp 1.4-litre TFSI and a 180 hp 1.8-litre TFSI. Coming later will be a 105 hp 1.2-liter TFSI, a 140 hp 1.4-litre TSFI, several diesel engines, one CNG engine and one electric model. The S-Line “sport” dress-up package is optional.
The new model is likely to reach UAE showrooms well into next year. We’re sure there must be someone in this country who’ll wait with bated breath for this scorcher.
