Car Tech Video: Audi A3 concept

1:28 /

Audi moves a lot of cool tech down the model range.

-It's far from the biggest Audi, but it's got a lot of good stuff in it. This is the new Audi A3 concept being rolled out just now here at Geneva, not that far out there. So I get excited about concepts like this because they might actually make it into showrooms more or less intact. So let's see what's going on. I'm not gonna you bore you with all that damn design speak about harmonious fluid lines and fenders that hit at the power that lies between them, which sounds kinda obscene anyway. But there is a 2-1/2 liter turbo charge, gas direct injection engine, 408 horsepower, 368 foot pounds of torque gets you up to 60 in about 4 seconds in a tiny fraction while doing 28 miles per galloon, so all of that is kind of great. But what's inside the cabin is a whole lot more interesting. Inside, there is a revised version of Audi's MMI. It includes the touch pad that is currently only found on the A8. There is an 8-inch LCD that pops up, ultra thin, out of the middle of the dash, built-in wireless broadband is envisioned to bring Google services into the car on screen or screens as well as creating a Wi-Fi hotspot for the passengers, iPad holders in the rear of the front headrests and check out these speakers on the rear deck. These things pop up a few millimeters when you power on system just to say I'm cool.
