Looking for a luxury vehicle that could reach a top speed of 220 km/h (136.7 mph) and accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 8.1 seconds while consuming just 4.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (50 US mpg) over the combined cycle?
Then, why not take a look at the Audi A3 version powered by a 110 kW (150 hp) 1.4 TFSI engine that emits just 109 g/km of carbon dioxide (175.4 g/mi). The Audi A3 1.4 TFSI can be availed in either a manual 6-speed transmission or a 7-speed S tronic.
The TFSI engine, which features cylinder on demand technology, can be availed in all four body versions -- the A3 three-door, A3 five-door Sportback, A3 Sedan and A3 Cabriolet. The German carmaker is also offering an A3 ultra version powered by an 81 kW (110 hp) 1.6 TDI engine, which have been offered for the three-door version and the Sportback since 2013.
Audi will soon offer the 1.6 TDI in the A3 Sedan. The engine returns 3.3 liters of diesel per 100 km (71.3 US mpg) and emits only 88 grams of CO2 per kilometer (141.6 g/mi).
Audi’s ultra models underscore the brand’s goal to make its products and production processes sustainable, without sacrificing the quality of driving enjoyment associated with it.
So far, Audi has rolled out 12 ultra models powered by TDI and TFSI engines in the A4, A5, A6 and A7 car lines. The luxury brand currently boasts of a total of 22 ultra models in its range.
The ultra fleet is Audis’ third production concept -- next to e-tron plug-in hybrid models and the g-tron units – that embodies the carmaker’s goal of providing sustainable mobility that could be used everyday.
