Driving Pleasure in a New Guise - A3 Sportback

The 3.2 Six-Cylinder Engine

The highest-performance engine for this model, and also the top petrol engine for the A3 Sportback: the V6 engine with a displacement of 3.2 liters.

The six-cylinder engine is particularly suited to a distinctly sporty vehicle such as the Audi A3 Sportback thanks to its outstanding torque and power characteristics.

Its maximum output is 250 bhp, and the torque range is particularly impressive, peaking at 236 lb-ft between 2500 and 3000 rpm.

This is just perfect for powerful pulling at all speeds as well as nimble acceleration - regardless of whether the driver opts for a 6 speed manual gearbox or the new, sporty Direct Shift Gearbox DSG.

The performance figures of the A3 Sportback 3.2 quattro with Direct Shift Gearbox DSG are correspondingly impressive: it accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 155 mph (governed).

Throttle valve actuation is designed for an exceptionally agile, spontaneous engine response to accelerator pedal movements. Indeed, particularly the interaction of the engine with ultra-fast, precise control of the Direct Shift Gearbox DSG creates an entirely new sensation of power and performance on the road.

The DSG transmission control exhibits its particularly sporty character in the active throttle blips during downshifts in the selector lever position S and in the manual gate.

The dual-branch exhaust system both helps to cut emissions and makes a very presentable sound. Audi's acoustics specialists have created a sonorous sound which, without ever becoming excessively assertive, is entirely appropriate to the sporting potential of this power unit.

The A3 Sportback 3.2 is equipped with quattro permanent four-wheel drive as standard.
