The A3 TDI Sportback is powered by a 150 horsepower 2.0L diesel engine with 236 lb-ft. of torquethat’s mated a six-speed S tronic transmission. Unfortunately a manual transmission and all-wheel-drive will not be offered. Audi hasn’t announced the fuel economy specs, but they should be higher than the last model’s 34 mpg rating. In the VW Jetta, the 2.0L engine is rated at 45 mpg on the highway with a manual transmission.
