20 Jun 2022 | Local News : Singapore

The Audi A3 Sedan and A3 Sportback are now available here in Singapore with a 1.0-litre engine.

The three-cylinder unit in both cars produces a total of 108bhp alongside a peak torque of 200Nm, as opposed to the 148bhp and 250Nm of torque which the cars equipped with the 1.5-litre four-cylinder engines offer (catch our review of the Sportback and Sedan equipped with the 1.5-litre powerplant here and here respectively).

Sporty design and compact proportions meet accessible prices with the 1.0-litre Audi A3
But the upside of opting for the smaller engine is that you'll be able to register your car here with a Cat A COE. Of course, the asking prices are lower as well, with the 1.0-litre Audi A3 Sportback asking for $186,369, as opposed to the $207,635 the 1.5-litre Sportback starts from.

The 1.0-litre A3 Sedan meanwhile, starts at $188,148, as opposed to the $209,415 the 1.5-litre equivalent is asking for.

Paired to a seven-speed gearbox and sending power to the front wheels, the new 1.0-litre cars will both complete the sprint to 100km/h from a standstill in 10.6 seconds, whereas both 1.5-litre cars will see to the same sprint in just 8.4 seconds.

However, the official fuel consumption for the 1.0-litre Audi A3 Sedan meanwhile is 23.3km/L, while that of the 1.0-litre Audi A3 Sportback stands at 22.7km/L. In comparison, both the 1.5-litre cars will drink fuel at an official rate of 20.8km/L.

The new cars both come equipped with Audi's 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and the firm's 10.1-inch infotainment display
In the cabin, the 1.0-litre variants of the Audi A3 continue to sport Audi's 10.1-inch touch display as standard integrated in the centre of the instrument panel, which is able to recognise letters entered by hand, offer acoustic feedback to confirm inputs, and can be controlled using voice commands. The infotainment system also comes with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility.

The Audi virtual cockpit plus digital also comes as standard for both cars, so you'll get all the driving information you need via a large 12.3-inch instrument cluster which can offer three different views.

Both 1.0-litre cars also come equipped with a host of safety and driver assistance systems including cruise control, a rear parking camera and lane departure warning.

Meanwhile, assistance systems such as Audi pre-sense basic, lane change and exit warnings as well as the park assist systems, are available as an option.

Car Model Price as of press time (inclusive of COE)
Audi A3 Sportback Mild Hybrid 1.0 TFSI S tronic (A) $186,369
Audi A3 Sedan Mild Hybrid 1.0 TFSI S tronic (A) $188,148
