Choosing the perfect performance A3 will be even easier from this week as the popular 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with fuel-efficient FSI technology becomes available in a wider range of configurations. Previously offered in Sport specification only, A3 and A3 Sportback 2.0 T FSI models can also now be ordered in more accessible standard form with prices starting from £19,070 OTR.
Standard and Sport versions of the three-door A3 and five-door A3 Sportback 2.0 T FSI are also now available with front-wheel-drive and six-speed manual transmission. Until now, only a combination of either front-wheel-drive with the acclaimed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) or quattro permanent four-wheel-drive with six-speed manual transmission was possible.
