I have to say, those torque and power figures are really impressive! A pretty good fuel efficiency figure too. Many people in India will be able to enter the premium car segment, since it's so affordable now!

Is there anything special about the Audi S-Tronic DCT or is it the standard VAG DSG DQ250 with a fancy name and the same failure probability?

I know the A3 Sedan, especially the higher variants were going at substantial discounts even 2-3 months back. It looks like it is a slow moving model for Audi. I would not be surprised if the new TFSI Premium variant is a strategy to sell inventory of slow moving kits. I hope we see 4-5 lac discounts on this variant by end of the year, it will make a great buy at 25 Lacs on-road Chennai!

Well & truly agreed. The Octavia is a superior car in every way. Even in terms of presence & street cred, the larger Octavia surely looks better than the tiny A3. As much of a fan as I am of Audi's styling, the A3's midget size makes it look rather funny in person.

Totally agree. I've seen a few of them on the street, and it very easily blends into the rest of the traffic, without having the "Premium- Audi" image attached to it. One would only really look at it if you knew its an Audi A3, or you happen to spot one in the bright red.

The Octavia on the other hand is a stunning design with MASSIVE road presence. You can spot that one from a mile away.

Mercedes gets away on this with the CLA as its quite a looker, and very easily noticeable.
