2013 Audi A3 Australian Pricing Announced
Audi Australia might have wittingly started an aggressive pricing war with Mercedes' new A-Class.
To make the all-new 2013 Audi A3 competitive enough against the Mercedes A-Class, the base model has been priced about AUD5,000 lower, at just AUD35,600.
The base Audi A3 for Australia will be powered by a 1.4-liter TFSI that will generate 122 hp and it will be available with a dual-clutch automatic transmission. Though full pricing won't be revealed for a couple more months, they has announced that three other engines will be available: the 1.8-liter TFSI with 180 hp (132 kw), as well as two diesel models, the 1.6 TDI with 105 hp (77 kW) and the 150 hp (110 kW) 2.0-liter TDI. Towards the end of the year, the latest generation 1.4 TFSI with cylinder deactivation and 140 hp will also be launched.
