Audi A3 to be Equipped with 4G LTE Connectivity



At Tuesday's Connected Car Expo during the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Audi said it will offer 4G LTE in the 2015 A3 sedan. The automaker, which already offers 3G connectivity across much of its lineup through Audi Connect, said the new service will be seven times faster and allow for up to eight mobile devices to be connected through an onboard WiFi hotspot.

It should enable smoother Google Earth and Google Street View images; it will also facilitate audible news, Facebook and Twitter alerts, and provide access to more than 7,000 stations of Internet radio.

You won't necessarily have to pay for a separate subscription, though. The automaker said it will offer shared data plans between your smartphone and the car — much like a cellphone family plan — to mitigate the cost, Audi officials told us at today's unveiling.

Monthly costs are still pending, as is an announcement on the 4G service provider. T-Mobile manages today's 3G connectivity. The 2015 A3 goes on sale in spring 2014, and Audi says it will be the first car in the world to offer "that kind of connectivity." It plans to roll out 4G LTE connectivity in other cars thereafter.

Highlight of Changes


  • This new family of cars from Audi brings a new level of standard features, craftsmanship and attention to detail to the fast growing entry premium market
  • The new A3 line-up from Audi will be rolled out over the next 18 months
  • First-ever 4G LTE connectivity introduced with the next generation Audi connect® system in the all-new A3

Performance

The A3 model line will offer impressive power and groundbreaking efficiency with five different engine variants including the 170 horsepower 1.8 TFSI®, 220 horsepower 2.0 TFSI, 150 horsepower 2.0 TDI® clean diesel, and an impressive 290* horsepower in the 2.0 TFSI powered S3. The 1.4 TFSI gasoline engine powering the parallel hybrid A3 sportback e-tron features a combined output of 201 hp and 258 lb ft of torque when the 100 hp e-motor is also engaged.

Exterior

The exterior of the A3 sedan has been completely redesigned and specifically tailored to meet the sedan preferences of the American market. The Audi A3 stretches 175.5 inches in length and has a 103.4 inch wheelbase. Combined with its 70 inch width and 55.7 inch height, its proportions are compact but very sporty and nearly resemble the original Audi A4 from 1994. 

Interior 

The athletic exterior of the A3 extends inside, where Audi maintains its leading role in automotive interior design and craftsmanship. The defining element is the “wraparound” dash design, which incorporates an innovative three-dimensional inlay concept surrounding the driver and front passenger. The available LED interior lighting package highlights the immense craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into every Audi A3 interior.
