Audi AG revealed the second generation of the Audi A3 sedan for the European market, which will also be followed with an India launch later next year. The new generation Audi A3 follows the technological enhancements from the Audi A3 Sportback, which the German carmaker recently revealed. The compact four-door model is digitally and fully connected from the infotainment through to the assistance systems, and will be in European dealerships beginning the summer of 2020.
2021 Audi A3 sedan retains the sporty and elegant look from its predecessor, and this is evident with the increase in its dimensions as the new Audi A3 is now 40mm longer, 20mm wider and 10mm taller than the outgoing model. The wheelbase, however, remains the same. The growth in size translates to more space on the inside with a 20mm extra headroom in the front and some more elbow room as well. The boot space too remains the same at 415-litres.
The design too is evolved with the front is dominated by a large Singleframe with a honeycomb grille that is flanked by striking headlights. On the outside, they form trapezoidal angles that are drawn downward. The top model features Matrix LED technology and new digital daytime running lights that consist of a pixel array made up of 15 LED segments. The short rear end is accentuated by the body line running above the sill rising towards the rear lights before the rear wheel arch extending up to the rear bumper. The roofline slopes down from the B-pillar dynamically just like on a coupé and finishes in a spoiler on the tailgate.
On the inside of the 2021 Audi A3 sedan, you will find that the cockpit is entirely focused on the driver, such as the instrument panel with the central MMI touch display inclined slightly towards the driver. It has a 10.1-inch diagonal and is intuitive to operate, and as standard comes with handwriting detection as well as natural language control that can optionally draw on the capabilities of the cloud.
