Our photographers also managed to capture some next-generation images of the new 2013 Audi A3
again and interior completely undisguised. The spy shots give us a clear view of the dashboard and instrument panel, a standard manual transmission, most likely with six forward gears, as well as a new retro design for the air conditioner vents.
Other details include Audi’s latest touch-sensitive pad on the MMI scroller wheel and a new lane departure warning system displayed in the main instrument cluster. Regarding the engine, a seven-speed S tronic dual clutch gearbox is expected to remain an option.
For the next-generation 2013 Audi A3, we think Audi is also developing a new 1.4 liter petrol unit (producing 140 PS / 103 kW / 138 hp) with cylinder deactivation. The unit is able to shut down two of the four cylinders under a light load which can represent a saving of up to 1.0 liter/100 km in fuel-economy when traveling at a constant speed of 50 km/h (31 mph).
