Audi A3 Sedan 1.0 TFSI S Tronic Review
Does a 1.0 in an Audi, Make it Less of an Audi?

Introduction and Exterior

At the rear, the A3’s new tail cluster features their new dynamic turn signal lights, just like those found on their larger cars, like the A6

Audi, makers of all things luxury, has just introduced a tiny engine to their smallest sedan. But can this 1.0 deliver the goods? Or will it be simply just too little?

The A3 has been with us for a while now. Apart from a new engine, the extensively facelifted car sports a few goodies, which may tip the scale from not enough, to just right.

Who would not like a fully loaded car? But in keeping things attainable, Audi has upped their game together with the facelift, while not over committing on the standard equipment list.

The new front headlamp cluster has been swopped out for a full LED assembly. There is some design evolution going on here. The new cluster features a more zig-zag-ish design, compared to the pre-facelifted car, which offered just a hint of dare, with its sculpting. Daytime running lights double as turn signals, at a flick of a switch. A new grille comes across as a little more subtle, but still retains the chrome surround found on the pre-facelifted model.

At the rear, the A3’s new tail cluster features their new dynamic turn signal lights, just like those found on their larger cars, like the A6.

We do like it that Audi had chosen to go the direction of producing an honest sedan, instead of what Mercedes had done, with their A Class, in producing a 4-doored ‘coupe’.
