Audi has finally unveiled its upcoming A3 sedan in India. The launch has taken place at the ongoing mega car show in our country. The A3 will be company's most affordable sedan with the competitive price tag  of around Rs. 25 lakhs. However, the A3 marquee has been in the international markets since 1996 under different body styles but its sedan version came  into life last year to counter the booming competition in entry-luxury segments.

The Audi A3 Sedan looks like an altered version of its elder sibling A4 that is 4469 mm in length. Based on the Volkswagen Group's MQB platform, that also underpins the recently launched Skoda Octavia, the car comes in front wheel drive configuration. The styling cues are similar to the A4 with same sophisticated and straight character lines along with iconic LED headlights and large front grille. The company showcasing the A3 Sedan quattro at Expo which is loaded with all the bells and whistles. But India bound version will shed some goodies inside the cabin. The Audi A3 Sedan will be launched with 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine that produces the peak power of 152 BHP and 320 Nm of torque. While the petrol powered A3 will get the 1.8-litre TFSI mill under its hood that delivers the power of 170 horses and 320 Nm torque to its front wheels.

Both powerplants will be mated to a 7-Speed DSG gearbox. Audi is targeting the new A3 Sedan for developing markets like India and other similar countries. The competition is growing rapidly in the entry-level luxury car market evident from the introduction of Mercedes' A-Class premium hatch and BMW 1-Series last year in our country. However, Audi cleverly faced the competition from both competitors with its less loaded SUV, Q3 Sport and now the A3 Sedan is also supposed to deal in similar way. Audi will launch the A3 Sedan in 3rd quarter of this year and expecting it to become the country's largest selling premium saloon.
