Under the hood, it will be powered by efficient petrol engines with outputs ranging from 95 hp to 200 hp. Turbocharging, direct injection and a particulate filter are standard. The engines will be offered with a manual transmission or the seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission. The exception is the top-of-the-range engine, where a six-speed S-tronic transmission shifts gear as standard.
The Sportback rolls off the production line with the Audi drive select dynamic handling system as an option. With it, drivers can select from four modes that influence the driving characteristics: auto, dynamic, efficiency and individual.
