Set to be released in 2021, the new Audi A3 Liftback Coupe is yet another rival to the Mercedes CLA and BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe.

The next generation A3 is a redesign of the current model and is the smallest sedan made by Audi. This liftback version is set to replace the Audi TT, which sales have been decreasing over the years.

The revamped liftback A3 has a wider front grille, LED head and tail lights, and is finished with an overall sleeker design. It’s also going to be fully electric, a plus for those of you who are keen to save the environment!

As mentioned previously, the A3 liftback is going up against the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and the Mercedes CLA, making the competition even more intense than before.

New Updates

Soon to come with a 1.4-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engine and 48V electric system, the Audi A3 will arrive in a 100% electric-powered body in the near future. The previous generation of A3 cars all ran on petrol and/or diesel, so the electric addition will be fresh to the market.

Moving towards an eco-friendly era, Audi has redesigned the upcoming A3 to be just as reliable as the previous generation, but with a more elegant design and elevating to fully-electric cars.

Audi claims that their electric cars “cover most driving distances” while depending solely on the electric powertrain.

Aside from the updates to the exterior, the liftback’s interior has a whole new look. With larger displays and a more futuristic interior trim, the new A3 is definitely a good pick. The interior is also more spacious, and is expected to have a larger boot space.

The A3 also has a virtual cockpit combined with a self-driving capability feature which makes this car both modern and futuristic.

Release date: 2021, exact date To Be Confirmed (TBC)

The redesign on the new Audi A3 is a nice upgrade from the existing model. Not only does it retain the classic A3 look, but also consists of several enhancements that are pleasing to the eyes.

However, the A3 is a complex line with many models. While the liftback version is appealing to us, you may prefer other variants like the Sportback or the regular sedan. Each model has its pros and cons, but ultimately, it depends which car catches your eye.
