Car enthusiasts are in for a real treat. Due to popular demand, the 2016 Audi A3 TDI Sportback is coming to the United States. The diesel-powered hatchback will offer amazing versatility and a rewarding on-road performance. The best part is that the overall fuel economy will be extremely frugal. Scheduled to be released next year, the 2016 Audi A3 TDI Sportback will give car buyers yet another option to choose from in the A3 lineup. As a testament to the car’s overwhelming support in the United States, some enthusiastic drivers are already prepared to pre-order a 2016 model.
Engine & Transmission
The 2016 Audi A3 TDI Sportback will be motivated by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder diesel engine. To enhance the overall performance of the engine, it will also be equipped with a turbocharger. When called into action, the engine will be able to rev out 150 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. As a result of having such an abundance of torque on hand, the new A3 Sportback will provide lively acceleration on the highway and in the city.
The new A3 TDI Sportback will use a six-speed S-Tronic gearbox. Unlike some of the older automatic transmissions on the market, the S-Tronic is designed to rival the performance of a manual transmission. This helps to provide the driver with a more exciting driving experience. Although the official fuel economy numbers have yet to be released, many experts estimate the highway fuel efficiency to hover near 45 miles-per-gallon.
The five-door design of the Audi A3 TDI Sportback will make it one of the most versatile daily-drivers on the market. The hatchback area is a major benefit to the drivers who need to use their car for hauling purposes. Like the rest of the A3 lineup, the Audi A3 Sportback will feature the automaker’s signature grille and eye-catching LED headlight design.
Upon opening the door of the new Audi A3 TDI Sportback, many onlookers will be surprised by the roominess of the interior. As expected, the cabin will be furnished with all of the latest high-end commodities. Although Audi has not given an official statement, the A3 Sportback will likely be offered with several high-tech goodies. Some of the proposed features include a Bang & Olufsen premium audio system, Audi’s Drive Select system, and an array of safety equipment. Drivers will also benefit from Audi’s legendary all-wheel drive system.
Expect the Audi A3 TDI Sportsback to hit dealerships sometime next year. Drivers who are seeking a versatile and fuel-efficient everyday driver should definitely put the upcoming A3 TDI Sportback on their wish list.
