2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Specs Review

2016 Audi A3 Sportback E-tron Specs Review - A new multiple-power Audi A3 is trying to expand its sibling in a distinctive package. Powered by a 1.4L Turbocharged 4-cylinder generating 150 horsepower, there will be a new generation called 2016 A3 Sportback E-tron. It's been rated at 157 miles per gallon and achieves up to 40 miles per hour in the full speed. Besides that primary engine, this 5-door luxury hatchback also packs an electric motor with 102 horsepower which can hit over 30 miles working alone, see 2016 A6 Review here. Not to underestimate that this fresh hatchback is still packed according European specs - that standard relies heavily on full-electric power in most ways, though drivers won't lose any gasoline while driving in short distances. The A3 Sportback then works like other gasoline-powered car once the battery runs out. On the latest test drive, the e-tron-featured A3 runs in 50 mpg with the battery works nothing. While the next try using the only electric power, it runs nearly 43 mpg. From what we found, this new A3 E-tron will rate at about 95 miles per gallon with the whole power.

The lithium-ion battery port is placed in the back of the Audi's grille rings. It can be recharged fully in a pretty short time of 2 hours using high-voltage outlets, it means that longer time is possible using lower ones. The A3 is just a creative E-tron-based sportback that can hit 0-60 sprint in about ten seconds long, and less than 8 seconds with combined power. Hiring a 6-speed double-clutch, the E-tron's peak speed is expected to hit 140 mph, compare to the 2016 S6 Specs.

Incorporating the E-tron technology into the compact A3 could be tough, and it's accomplished by moving the gas thank a couple inches back to create the space. And Audi has refined the tank in terms of crashing protection.

It's not strange that the A3 E-tron doesn't work any better rather than running in friendly speeds. Although it's not really sport, however, the transition from electric to engine, or hiring all of them, stays melodious with less buzzing.

The interior cabin will still offer the best among the class. For A7 interior changes. Drivers can follow their driving styles with Dynamic, Auto or comfort modes. But that freedom is normal, then now the A3 features more engine control with D/S modes. The D mode defines then A3 working in efficient fuel consumption, while the S means you use all energy to move.

The 2016 Audi A3 Sportback E-tron obviously costs more than the base A3, as in Europe going on. Having that special A3 we may expect to take less than $40,000 out. Let's see how it goes once the sportback E-tron available this summer.
