Audi A3 Sportback gets a G-Tron variant with the same sporty look
Audi has revealed the new A3 Sportback, which can be driven not only with gasoline but also with compressed natural gas (CNG). In addition to liquefied petroleum gas, methane (CNG) is another propulsion option that saves the driver and also helps nature thanks to low CO2 emissions.
Among them is Audi, which has just introduced the A3 Sportback 30 G-Tron with compressed natural gas engine. Moreover, this car can also use biogas as fuel. It is powered by a 1.5-liter TFSI turbo-gasoline engine that produces 131 horsepower (96 kW) and 200 Nm of torque. The engine is linked to a 7-speed automatic transmission, and the power is transmitted to the front wheels.
The German manufacturer states that the A3 Sportback 30 G-Tron accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.7 seconds and has a top speed of 211 km/h. The car has three CNGs (two larger and one smaller) and a petrol tank. The average methane consumption according to the NEDC standard is 3.6-3.5 kg/100 km, and CO2 emissions are 99-96 g/km.
If the gasoline and two larger CNG tanks are filled “to the top”, the car can travel 495 km. The petrol tank is located behind the rear axle and has a volume of 9 liters, while the capacity of each of the two largest CNG tanks is about 7 kg, and they are located under the luggage. The smallest is also in front of the rear axle.
The Audi A3 Sportback 30 G-Tron, among others, is equipped as standard with LED headlights, a 10.1-inch multimedia system display, a digital instrument panel, and a lane departure warning system.
The price of this model in Germany starts at 30,705 euros and will reach European stores during the fall.
