Jim Autos UK Top Uk Exporter of Audi A3The Audi A3 is a small family car produced by the German automaker Audi since 1996. Two generations of A3 exist, both based on the Volkswagen Group A platform, which they share with several other models such as the Audi TT, Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Caddy and Volkswagen Touran as well as SEAT León, SEAT Toledo and Škoda Octavia. It is

With its innovative design and sophisticated technology, the Audi A3 is the perfect introduction to Vorsprung durch Technik. It’s available with a choice of advanced petrol and diesel engines, from the turbocharged 1.4 TFSI® to the 2.0 TDI® quattro® – all of which deliver exceptional efficiency and performance. And there’s also a wide range of equipment and accessories to choose from, enabling you to build a car that suits you completely.


Efficiency

At Audi, doing less is something we’re trying to do more of. We’re working to use less fuel, release less CO2 and waste less energy. It’s why we’ve incorporated a number of more efficient technologies into the Audi A3.

TDI® and FSI®

Inside the engine of the Audi A3 you’ll find the same advanced fuel-injection technology that’s driven us to win after win at Le Mans. With TDI® and FSI®, fuel is injected directly into the engine’s chambers so that combustion is timed right down to the millisecond. As a result, waste is minimised and you get the most from every last drop of fuel. Gear-change indicator Small changes to your driving style can have a big impact on your fuel economy. The gear-change indicator in the Audi A3 is there to indicate the optimum gear to use for any given speed, encouraging early upshifts to ensure you don’t burn more fuel than is necessary.

Aerodynamics

A car’s shape is one of the most important factors that influences its efficiency. It’s why we’ve worked to make the Audi A3 as aerodynamic as possible.

Recuperation

When a vehicle brakes, the discs convert the kinetic energy into thermal energy, which is wasted as it cannot be used. With a recuperation system, like the one in the Audi A3 1.4 TFSI® with Start- Stop, the kinetic energy is converted into useful electrical energy. The way it works is simple. While the car is coasting or braking, the alternator voltage is raised above the level of the basic electrical system, which enables the alternator to generate electrical energy and store it temporarily in the battery. When the vehicle accelerates, this energy is used to relieve the load on the alternator, resulting in a fuel saving of up to 3%.

Engines

Petrol

FSI® direct-injection technology is a unique Audi innovation that was originally developed for the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race to deliver more power and torque, as well as enhanced fuel efficiency. Precisely the right amount of fuel and air are injected into the combustion chambers, enabling the engine to ‘breathe’ more easily. It results in reduced heat loss and increased output, with around a 15% reduction in fuel consumption and significantly lower exhaust emissions. We’ve also developed TFSI®, with turbocharging – giving cars an extra injection of power.

Diesel

We introduced TDI® to the roads in 1989, marking a departure from the noisy, fuel-thirsty diesel engines of the past. And since then, we’ve continuously refined it, recently developing commonrail technology. Under this system, a series of piezo injectors use electrical charge to precisely control the amount of fuel injected into the engine. As well as reducing noise, this allows combustion to happen at a lower temperature, with less oxygen, which lowers emissions.

Transmission

S tronic®

Driving is all about thinking ahead, which is just what the S tronic® dual-clutch transmission does. It works almost as two separate systems, one engaging the odd-numbered and the other the even-numbered gears. So when you’re accelerating in second, it has third gear waiting for you. And once you make the switch, it’s already thinking about fourth. With two clutches working together, you can change gears almost instantly while experiencing smooth, uninterrupted power.

quattro®

It’s the technology that has given Audi the edge on the racetrack ever since it was first introduced over 30 years ago – a technology that delivers ultimate control whilst enhancing the sporty characteristics which make the Audi A3 so thrilling to drive. It’s called quattro® all-wheel-drive. The principle is simple: in the same way that four brakes ensure better deceleration, four driven wheels deliver better acceleration and road-holding, pushing or pulling the car as needed, for a driving experience that’s both dynamic and safe.
