Audi A3 Concept
23rd February, 2011
- Attractive four-seater notchback sedan concept car
- Five-cylinder, 300 kW turbocharged engine with quattro drive
- Based on the next Audi A3
Audi will present an attractive technological concept car based on the next generation of the
Audi A3 at the 81st Geneva Motor Show in early March 2011. The four-seater notchback sedan offers a
glimpse of the future expansion of the A3 line-up.
The sporty yet elegant design of the Audi A3 concept integrates the single-frame grille with its
tapered upper corners and headlights with the latest generation of LED technology. The low, flowing
roof dome and a coupe-like, low C pillar are among the defining features of the side view.
The Audi A3 concept is 4.44 metres (14.57 feet) long, 1.84 metres (6.04 feet) wide and just 1.39
metres (4.56 feet) high. These proportions emphasise the dynamism of the carís appearance, as do the
performance figures for the drive unit. The five-cylinder turbocharged engine has a power output of
300 kW (408 hp). It distributes its power to all four wheels through a seven-speed S tronic
transmission and permanent all-wheel drive.
