Audi A3 Facelift Will Launch In India On 6th April 2017
Some of the reports on the internet suggest that Audi will be launching their entry level compact sedan on 6th April 2017. The A3 will be the German premium auto manufacturers third launch after the A3 Cabriolet and the A4 diesel variant for the Indian market; they have planned 10 new products for the Indian market for the year 2017.
The 2017 model A3 gets few cosmetic updates both on the exterior as well interior but the most interesting part though is that it gets a new petrol engine under the hood as well.
Visually the cosmetic updated made to the facelift sedan includes a slightly larger hexagonal shaped grille and also new LED headlamps as an option, the standard version, on the other hand, gets Bi-xenon lights. The headlight unit also integrated LED daytime running lamps as well which looks a lot sharper. Besides the new grille and the headlights, the A3 facelift also gets a redesigned front grille as well which gets bigger air vents. The side profile, however, remains identical to the pre-facelift variant however the updated sedan does get new 16-inch alloy wheels. The rear profile just like the front gets a revised bumper and tweaked and revised taillamps.
Just like the exterior the interior too has been changed as well. The dashboard remains unchanged and gets the same multimedia screen that pops out from inside. Now the Audi A3 also features a wireless mobile charger. Unlike the other International models, the A3 facelift also misses out the Virtual cockpit but instead gets the analogue instrument console.
Audi Confirms Q4 SUV Launch in 2019
We all expected Audi to launch the Q4 SUV by the year 2017, but the launch delayed due to the now infamous Diesel Gate emission scandal. However, Audi is all set to bounce back and has plans not only to rejuvenate their current product lineup but also introduce three battery-electric models by the year 2020 and to electrify new model series after that. To make their plans, successful Audi has already trained 6000 of their employees to work on these electric drivetrains for over the last three years.
Apart from introducing electric vehicles, Audi will also be introducing self-driving cars as well on the road which will be taken care by their newly founded subsidiary, Autonomous Intelligent Driving GmbH in Munich.
The new models which are lined up and almost ready to launch are their most prestigious flagship A8 sedan alongside the new generation Q5 and A5. In the year 2018, Audi also has plans to launch the second generation A7 as well alongside the Q8 SUV.
However, one particular SUV which will also grace Audi’s new lineup is the Q4 Sporty Compact Utility vehicle.

The new and powerful sedan is obviously launching in the markets of USA and there is a fair chance of it reaching the Indian shores as well.
