While gasoline versions of the all-new 2015 Audi A3 compact luxury sedan went on sale in April, the model line also includes a TDI diesel version as well as an S3 performance sedan and an A3 Cabrio convertible.

Those models will go on sale late this summer, and now pricing has been released for the diesel version.

The 2015 Audi A3 TDI is fitted with a 150-horsepower 2.0-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine that produces 236 lb-ft of torque, driving the front wheels through the company's S-Tronic direct-shift gearbox.

Quattro all-wheel drive, however, will not be offered on the diesel A3.

Altogether, Audi has sold more than 40,000 diesel vehicles in the U.S. since 2009.

Last year, it expanded diesel engine availability from its initial two cars--the previous-generation A3 and the low-volume Q7 large sport-utility vehicle--to its A6 and A8 large sedans and the related A7 large hatchback.

It will also offer a TDI diesel version of its high-volume A4 mid-size sedan when a new generation of that model is introduced next year.

The new generation of A3 has been launched as a four-door sedan, rather than the five-door hatchback to which the previous version was limited. The Sportback five-door body style of the new car will be limited to the A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid model

Standard equipment on the A3 range includes a power panoramic sunroof, leather seats, HD and satellite radio, bi-xenon headlights, LED taillights, and Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming.

Options include full LED headlights, a Bang & Olufsen premium audio system, and 4G LTE connectivity.

That starting price of $32,600 for the 2015 A3 TDI does not, of course, include any options or the mandatory destination charge.
