New Audi A3 Gets Promo Video for Accessories
Despite being exactly as long as the old A3, and not much different esthetically, the 2012 A3 is based on a brand new modular platform from VW Group, which has helped it shed a lot of weight. For instance, the the 1.4 TFSI version tips the scales at 1,175 kg (2,590 lb), which is 80 kg (176.37 lb) under the old car.
The biggest change for the exterior is the arrival of full-LED headlights, which are impressive considering this is a C-segment car. But it’s inside where the magic happens, as Audi has de-clutterd the dash, making everything look airy.
