Audi adds power to A3 g-tronMarch 8, 2019
Now an economical compact car from Ingolstadt boasts a new 1.15-liter turbo engine capable of developing up to 130 horsepower, as well as an additional fuel tank.
The Audi A3 G-tron has been updated a bit and is now not just a car with a gas fuel system, but a real long-range vehicle capable of using gas and gasoline as fuel. This greatly increases the mobility and versatility of the compact hatchback, while maintaining the cost-effectiveness of its operation. For this, the company had to install a new engine, adding power, as well as an additional fuel tank.
The previous 1.4-liter engine with 110 horsepower was replaced by a 1.5-liter turbo engine capable of developing about 131 hp. Previously, the model was equipped with two fiberglass gas cylinders under the trunk and one gas tank. In the new modification one more steel cylinder for natural gas was added.
Cruising on gas is about 400 km in mixed mode according to the new European standard. The total mass of gas fuel in three tanks is only 14.3 kg. As soon as the fuel ends the engine automatically switches to gasoline, which is enough for about 160 km.
The updated version of the Audi A3 G-tron is not yet for sale, but has already started accepting pre-orders with an initial cost of 30,600 euros.
