German luxury car maker Audi launched its new sedan A3 in India with priced tag between Rs 22.95 lakh and Rs 32.66 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

According to “Audi India Head Joe King told PTI, “We think this is the right product for self driven, young customers in urban environment. Besides, we are also looking to those existing Audi customers who are looking for second car with the A3. We expect 15 per cent of our total sales to come from this model.

He added, the A3 is expected to join the compact SUV Q3, sedans A4 and A6 as the company’s growth drivers in India. The A3 is available in both petrol and diesel variants. The petrol variant powered by a 1.8-litre engine will come at a price of Rs 28.95 lakh. As expected in the first half of the year, the industry growth was flat but we expect sales to pick up in the second half. As for Audi we are looking at double digit growth this year, which will be another record year for us.” The local production of the Audi A3 Sedan in India is continuation of the company’s growth strategy and consistent focus on the Indian market. The strategy would be continued with other future products, he said: “That’s something we will consider as we expand our product portfolio here in India.”

The diesel version of the A3 with a 2-litre engine comes in four variants priced at Rs 22.95 lakh, Rs 25.95 lakh, Rs 29.95 lakh and Rs 32.66 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
