A3 Conclusions/Previews of Things to Come
For those who can wait, 2008 should be a REALLY interesting model year for the A3 and Audi in general. 2008 is the 1st year the US might get the S3 which uses a tricked out 2.0T to get 260-270 hp. The appearance of the S3 will coincide with the disappearance of the 3.2.
But the BIG news in 2008 is that one of Audi's turbo diesels will likely be an option on the A3. Reading reviews in parts of the world that already have the diesel, it pulls like a V6 and gets 40-50 mpg. With the addition of a diesel engine, the A3 may become one of the most practical sports machines around. My bet is that the diesel A3 will be the car to have.
