The Audi A3 is already offered as a three-door hatchback, a five-door Sportback, a compact Saloon and a Convertible but, from 2019, it’ll likewise be offered as a stylish four-door coupe. Audi hopes this new model will drive purchasers far from the likes of the Mercedes CLA.
The new 2019 Audi A3 Coupe is expected to take inspiration from the TT Sportback idea, revealed above. Its sophisticated roofline and sporty percentages will join a choice of distinct trim pieces to assist this brand-new car stand out from the rest of the A3 range.
When this new car gets here, it ought to be treated to an updated version of Audi’s excellent Virtual Cockpit infotainment system and a stylish, minimalist cabin with a wealth of upmarket materials. The Coupe’s graceful sloping roofline may provide it a more appealing silhouette than either the saloon or hatchback but it’ll likely restrict check out headroom. Boot space is also expected to take a little a hit in pursuit of sporty styling.
A choice of both petrol and diesel systems will power this upcoming coupe through either a six-speed handbook or a seven-speed DSG automated gearbox. Entry-level cars will be front-wheel drive just while top-spec models need to come fitted with a quattro four-wheel-drive system. We’re keeping our fingers crossed Audi will use a raucous RS3 Coupe model powered by a 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder unit, too.
When it hits UK roads in 2019 we expect the 2019 Audi A3 Coupe to cost roughly the exact same throughout the range as the Mercedes CLA. Entry-level models need to set you back around ₤ 25,000 while top-spec versions might come with a price approaching ₤ 40,000.
