Audi A3 e-Tron 2020 Performance & Handling :
Audi A3 Sportback E-Tron comes with a 1.4L petrol engine mated with 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Therefore, it’s easy to drive.
This engine provides with its four cylinders and two-wheel drive a horsepower of 204bhp and 184 lb-ft (250Nm) of torque.
Moreover, the 1.4L engine can be combined with an electric motor to offer a good speed with low emission of CO2 (43-45). Or, you can use the electric motor only and get 30 miles of range.
Performance (0-62mph and Top Speed):
Regarding Performance, Audi A3 e Tron 2020 hits 62 mph in 7.6 and a top speed of 138mph.
So clearly, it is not a car you can race down the road. A3 E-Tron hatchback makes a great choice when you want to enjoy smoother EV driving experience.
Compared to its rivals, Lexus CT 200h has a top speed of 134mph and gets 0-62mph in 10.3seconds, which is slow than A3 E-Tron.
However, Mercedes B-Class B250 e is faster. It has a top speed of 146mph and gets 0-62mph in 6.8 seconds. which put the A3 E-tron in the middle of the competition.
Adding battery pack capacity and capabilities to the performance category, e-Tron features a 95kWh Lithium-ion battery, which is high enough. However, running only 2.2 miles per kWh is a bit disappointing.
The 5,500 pounds of weight further put a bad impact on its handling, but overall, handling is just average, neither below nor above the average line. The brakes are just like those in most EVs, and physical brakes are only put to use when you need instant complete stop. Otherwise, the electric motor does the speed maintenance job.
Audi A3 e-Tron 2020 Design :
The Audi a3 E-Tron 2020 put great focus on aerodynamics, and we can see that right on the e-Tron’s bumper. With silver accents and non-hidden exhaust outlets, it looks way better than Q8, which feels to have a compressed design.
It features a more open grille with silver highlights instead of an all-black design. Headlights seem to bigger, and the credit goes to their tidier bottom section.
When we turn to the back, the wider LED strip lies right above slimmer taillights, making the overall back look more confined.
Audi a3 e Tron 2020 Interior :
When we talk about interior design, it gives forward a striking wood and silver combo. Overall the interior is quite minimalistic and impressive. The favorite thing about e-Tron’s design is its steering wheel that looks like the yoke of the airplane, featuring four-spoke design.
Here too, we were impressed with the aerodynamic spirit in the updated A3 e-Tron. The quality of the ride is also subjected to the electrification. The resources of Audi have claimed that for this car, the harshness of the noise by the vibrations has been improved drastically, by the provision of EV powertrains in the mind.
Certainly, another plug is provided in the hybrid variant for the replacement of it. Likely that is similar to the new TSFI-e moniker. This model is much better than the previous ones.
The cabin comes in Audi’s signature glass-cockpit design, just like Q8, A6, A7, and A8. There are three unique displays, and each offers amazing graphics. The first one is a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster while the second and third are 10.1 inch and 8.8-inch touchscreen displays, respectively.
