Commonwealth Audi Expects 2013 Audi A3 Next Fall

Santa Ana, CA July 31, 2012 - Commonwealth Audi in California has announced that the 2013 Audi A3 is slated to appear in its Santa Ana show room next October.  A preview of the 2013 Audi A3 will be available to Audi fans at the Paris Motor Show this October, and the model will be available for purchase one year from then. “The 2013 Audi A3 has a lot of new features to offer drivers and will definitely make an impression,” says Commonwealth Audi General Manager Matt Crandall.  “We are excited for the upcoming preview and to prepare for its arrival next year.” The 2013 Audi A3 will be available in a five-door Sportback and a four-door small sedan.  The new version uses the new VW Group MQB architecture.  With this new design, the front axle moved slightly forward giving the front passenger increased legroom.  In the recent development of the A3, a primary goal has been to lower the overall weight and the new models have dropped over 100 pounds.  Because of Audi’s space frame aluminum-steel construction, much of the front end components of the compact segment now consist of aluminum, making the A3 much lighter. Every model is [...]
