    Kempen – More space, more stylishness and – in its ABT Sportsline version – also more sportiness. The new Audi A3 Sportback is a compact lifestyle vehicle that goes down well with everyone. A real premium car through and through, it forms the ideal basis for the traditional Bavarian company’s tuning skills. “It has been our objective to come up with huge dynamism and a self-confident design”, says Hans-Jürgen Abt, the CEO of ABT Sportsline: “The new ABT AS3 Sportback is a winner.”


    And its “intrinsic” values are also quite something. Two upratings have already been conclusively tested for their dependability and roadworthiness: Thanks to ABT POWER “New Generation“, the very economical 1.4 TFSI now shows 160 hp (118 kW), up from its serial 122 hp (90 kW). Torque has been increased from 200 to 250 Nm. The 2 liter turbo diesel now has 170 hp or 125 kW (serial version: 150 hp/110 kW). Its torque is up from 320 to 360 Nm. Two further engines are currently being developed: the “little” 1.6 TDI and the 1.8 TFSI, which will also make the new ABT AS3 Sportback an economically and ecologically equally creditable car for a both pleasurable and sensibility way of driving.

    The dynamism of the Audi A3 Sportback from ABT is also reflected in its design: It comes across as assertive, powerful and at the same time elegant without even having been moved an inch. The large front spoiler lip and the ABT grille are fully in line with the fender inserts and side skirts. The rear skirt set with its typical 4-pipe exhaust and the rear spoiler make this compact car appear even more compact. On the road, it presses down on the black top, which is also due to its chassis springs with which ABT lowers the car’s CoG by 35 mm. The ABT brake system with its huge discs (345 mm in diameter) and the matching steel-flex brake lines make for ideal retarding values.

    A perfect match for this perfect lifestyle car are the DR alloy wheels, available in 18 and 19 inches. It goes without saying that the tuning company also sells the wheel in combination with premium sport tires. After all, the chic ABT AS3 Sportback is also supposed to be a safe driver.
