Audi A3 sedan from under $39,800
Audi has announced the Australian model line-up for its first ever A3 sedan ahead of its release here in January.
Local pricing for the four-door A3 will start at $39,800 plus on-road costs.
As expected, that makes the entry-level 1.4 TFSI COD S-tronic Attraction $1900 more expensive than the equivalent A3 Sportback hatch ($37,900 plus ORCS).
However, the cheapest A3 sedan remains more than $10,000 more affordable than its most direct rival in the similarly all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 sedan (from $49,900).
Closely resembling the A3 hatchback range, four A3 sedan model grades will be available, powered by three engines -- all matched to Audi’s S-tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission as standard.
While the same engine powers the base A3 hatch (from $35,600), the base A3 sedan will be powered by a 103kW/250Nm 1.4-litre forced-induction four-cylinder petrol engine with fuel-saving Cylinder-on-Demand technology.
