The FSI unit was previously sold only in Sport versions of the A3, but as of this week it's being offered in standard form too. The non-Sport cars have front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission, and this configuration is also being offered on the Sport for the first time.
Prices are £19,070 for the A3 2.0 T FSI hatchback and £21,070 for the new Sport. Both cars can also be bought in Sportback form for an additional £500.
Meanwhile, the 3.2-litre FSI V6 engine recently introduced to the A8 range is now being made available with four-wheel drive for the first time. Unlike the front-wheel drive versions, which use the Multitronic CVT, the quattro cars have a six-speed Tiptronic automatic. Prices are £49,830 for the standard car and £52,330 for the Sport.
