The investment took about 900 million euros, but thanks to it over 2100 new employees were employed. In September 2014, a 100,000 car from the new factory was driven – Audi S3 Limousine.

In April 2014 – at a press conference organized on the occasion of the New York motor show – the Audi A3 received the prestigious title of “World Car of the Year 2014” from automotive journalists.
In December 2014, Audi decided to present the most powerful version of this model. The new Audi RS3, with the iconic five-cylinder 2.5 TFSI engine is expected to go on sale this summer, it will only be offered in the Sportback version.

All-wheel power will be distributed by a 7-speed S-tronic transmission with quattro drive. The weight of the car is 1595 kg, and the sprint to the hundred will take 4.3 seconds. Top speed traditionally limited to 250 km / h (280 km / h at extra charge). Since 2017, the RS3 has an engine boosted to 400 HP.
In mid-2016, A3 made its debut after product changes. The design of the front belt and the shape of the rear headlights have changed, new wheel designs have been added, as well as 5 new body colors. In the interior, the MMI multimedia system has been simplified and the option of ordering digital indicators has been added (so-called Audi virtual cockpit – solutions that previously appeared in higher Audi models). In A3 after facelift, new assistance systems have appeared, including emergency assist, which can stop the car on its own after detecting a lack of reaction from the driver. The 3-cylinder 1.0 TFSI engine debuted in the engine palette, generating 115 hp and 200 Nm. The sport version of S3 gained 10 hp after facelift (power increased from 300 to 310 hp).
