Diesel-Powered A3 Offers Unrivaled EfficiencyMar 18th, 2015
Most Fuel-Efficient 2015 Audi Model
Although quite a few luxury automakers continue to hold onto their fuel-gulping V6 and V8 engines, Audi has been making a push to rid their lineup of those larger engines, instead opting for more fuel-efficient turbocharged four-cylinder engines. For this reason, just about every Audi in the family is able to travel great distances on a small amount of fuel. However, there is one model in particular that’s able to achieve higher fuel economy ratings that the others. Let’s take a look at the most fuel-efficient 2015 Audi model.
Of all the vehicles in the lineup, there are no Audi models quite as efficient as the 2015 Audi A3, which is able to complete a 100 km journey with just a few litres of fuel. If you are familiar with the A3, you likely know that there are a few different engine options, and while all of the powertrains are able to deliver an impressive level of efficiency, there is one Audi A3 engine in particular that is a step above the rest.
Diesel fuel continues to gain a great deal of popularity, as changes in technology have allowed the engines to run cleaner and more efficiently than they did in the past. As we told you when looking at the benefits of Audi TDI clean diesel engines, the fuel source can be up to 30 percent more efficient than standard gasoline, which of course translates to higher fuel economy ratings. As this is the case, it comes as no surprise that the diesel engine offered in the nose of the Audi A3 is the most efficient of the three options.
2015 Audi A3 Fuel Economy Ratings
When equipped with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the 2015 Audi A3 has the ability to run up 100 km on the odometer with as little as 7.5 litres of fuel. When traveling on the highway, even less fuel is burned. Only 5.4 litres are used up on the 100 km journey when the A3 is taking on faster highway speeds. With such a limited number of litres being burned, the efficiency of the A3 is definitely impressive.
