Audi India to launch the S3 before the A3

Audi India has plans to introduce the A3 and even its performance edition the S3 for the Indian car market. Our sources claim that the S3 might just be launched before the A3. The S3 is powered by a 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine producing 296bhp of power and comes mated to a six-speed S-Tronic transmission.

For the A3 there will be the A3 sedan, A3 cabriolet and these will be available in manual and automatic transmission options. A 1.8-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel engines will power the A3. We aren’t sure of the power ratings at the moment. This will be the new entry-level model for the Audi badge in India. Not anytime soon, but also expect the A3 hatch to come to India in the coming years. The Q3 and the A4 has been the best seller for Audi and the company wants to capture the compact sedan market with the A3.

This year we will also see the facelift version of the A8 to be launched. Audi has already started taking bookings from some of its prestige customers and we shall soon see the new A8 plying on Indian roads. There is also the new Q7 in the pipeline too, hence you will get a massive discount on the current range of Q7.
