Default New Audi A3 Black Edition Models Launched in the UK




Quote:
Audi is enhancing its entire A3 line-up in the UK with the introduction of new Black Edition versions of the three-door, five-door Sportback and Cabriolet A3 models. Though one would expect that the blacked-out A3 would be offered only in black color, the special edition A3 models are also available with the no-cost option of Ibis White and the extra cost metallic options Phantom Black, Misano Red and Monza Silver.

Taking the top S line model as its basis, the new limited run A3 range feature dark titanium 18-inch S line design alloy wheels, a de-chromed front grille and window surroundings and, in the Cabriolet versions, black surrounds for the roll bars and the shoulder line. Furthermore, the A3 Black Edition models come equipped with standard fit Xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps.



Inside, the limited run Black Editions are marked out by high gloss Piano black inlays and a flat-bottomed multi-function steering wheel. In addition to the standard equipment of the S line package, the special edition A3's also feature a high output Bose speaker system and acoustic rear parking sensors.



The new Black Edition specification is available in conjunction with the 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engines with 160HP and 200HP respectively, and the two 2.0 TDI common rail diesel engines (140HP and 170HP). While it carries a premium of 905 over the equivalent S line model in each case, Audi supports that when the additional equipment it offers is taken into account, it represents a customer saving of 675 on the A3 Black Edition and 650 on the A3 Cabriolet Black Edition.

No you're not reading them correctly. Been covered here a billion times. The cost of cars in other places in the world does not directly translate to their value in North America.

Oh and yeah, i totally want an A3.

Cheers,
Tim

P.S...blah blah banana

A3 is very sweet, but I'd still prefer an S4 Avant (even though, yeah, a higher price point). I do believe Audi is canceling them for the US, for the current/upcoming model. Such a shame!

Hopefully it won't be a permanent decision.
