|Audi A3 sedan|
Audi’s entry-level model will be reborn as a sedan for the 2015 model year, with the first cars arriving in U.S. showrooms in early 2014. Buyers will have the choice of 1.8-liter and 2-liter turbocharged EA888 gasoline engines and a 2-liter turbocharged EA288 diesel engine. The high-performance S3 will come with the 2-liter EA888 engine tuned for additional power. While the five-door “sportback” body style was pulled from the United States at the end of the last generation, Audi is considering a diesel-only A3 sportback for the 2015 model year.|
Audi will equip the 2015 A3 compact sedan with 4G LTE high-speed data connectivity. The sedan goes on sale in the United States next spring. Drivers will have access to more than 7,000 Internet radio stations, picture-based navigation, Google Earth real-time flight departure and landing information and more with the service, which Audi said is seven times faster than 3G connectivity. Up to eight mobile devices will work with the car's 4G LTE connection. Audi did not disclose which company will provide the 4G service.
