Audi India, country’s largest selling luxury car maker, recently revealed its official exhibit plans for the fast approaching  Auto Expo 2014, which will be held at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida early next month. Along with special variants of many of the models that are currently on sale in our country, Audi at Auto Expo 2014 would also showcase the highly anticipated A3 sedan and the new R18 e-tron quattro. While the showcasing of the latter will be a part of a brand building exercise, the Audi A3 sedan India launch will happen later this year.

The Audi A3 sedan is looking slated to become the new entry-level sedan in Audi India’s product portfolio. The upcoming car looks much like a slightly shrunken A4 and at 4456mm long, the new Audi A3 sedan isn’t really a large car. However, the A3 sedan boasts of a high quality cabin, a long equipment list and gives you a list of sufficiently potent and refined motors to choose form.

The Audi A3 sedan is a Mercedes CLA sedan adversary and is likely to carry a competitive price tag.

Audi R18 e-tron quattro has been the winner of the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans and is the first Le Mans participant from Audi to win with a hybrid drive system.

The 2014-generation Audi R18 e-tron quattro is the most complex race car ever built by Audi. At first glance, the new hybrid sports car appears much likethe World Championship winning car and Le Mans winner of the past two years. However, due to the new LMP1 regulations that will come into effect in 2014, Audi Sport factually redeveloped every single component.
