The Audi A3 facelift will be available with two engine options: a 2.0-litre four cylinder TDI engine and a 1.4-litre four cylinder TFSI engine. The diesel engine is tuned to produce 139 bhp and 320 Nm of torque while the petrol engine is capable of producing 148 bhp and 250 Nm of torque. The former comes mated to a six speed DSG transmission while the latter is paired to a seven speed unit.
Visual differences on the Audi A3 facelift over the previous generation model include LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs, bigger hexagonal grille, redesigned bumpers, new tail lamps and 16 inch alloy wheels.
