The new 2022 Audi A3 will feature an evolution of the design from the previous generation, but with a sportier stance. The front and rear fascias feature a new drop-down grille with a matte black surround and an RS-inspired honeycomb grille, with red calipers. The car’s rear end will have segmented headlights. The top-of-the-line model will feature more than just a few styling changes.
The new Audi A3 features the same 2.0-liter TFSI engine that produces 201 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. The A3 also features a seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic automatic transmission. The new A3 will feature a 48-volt mild-hybrid system for more fuel-efficiency. It will also be available with a manual transmission or a six-speed manual.
The 2022 Audi A3 will be the most up-to-date model since it has been introduced in the U.S., and it will feature the same technology and styling that it shares with its larger A4 and A6 sibling. The new A3 will be 1.4 inches longer, 0.8 inches wider, and 0.5 inches taller than the current model. The A3 will also come standard with a panoramic sunroof, leather seating surfaces, and two new interior color choices.
The new A3 will be similar to the previous model in terms of size and wheelbase. However, it will feature a smaller screen for the infotainment system. While the cab is still spacious, the rear seat is more suitable for small children or people with short legs. The 2020 Audi A3 will be the first vehicle to be based on the MQB platform, which is hybrid-proof. This new A3 is expected to have the same interior and exterior design as the previous model, though it is unlikely to be nearly as popular.
