Spyshots: New Audi A3 Almost Ready for Unveiling

The main reason they created it is to standardize production and the parts used, but it also helps save some weight, as the A3 is going to be 80 kg lighter.
The engine range will obviously include turbocharged petrol and diesel units, but hybrid and plug-in versions are also a high probably. They’ve also recently introduced cylinder deactivation, and all their units are going to be a bit more efficient an clean.
