2012 Audi A3



These are just illustrations. But the real thing could be pretty close. From what we've seen from Audi already.

The hatchback will be joined by a new sedan design.
Which Audi thinks will be the most popular version in the US. And they are probably right.
Although I do like the hatchback much better, and as far as I know, it is still planned for the US.

I think that hatch is amazing.. ten times better than the current A3! If it's even close to that illustration, they'll sell a ton! Despite the constant assertions that hatches don't sell in the US (maybe not in the '90s.. but they do now!), they need to bring both bodystyles!

The A3 Hatchback has never caught on in the US. I can't remember the last time I saw one on the road. The sedan should sell much better, but why not a coupe?

how much smaller can the sedan be then the current A4???

What would excite me more is if they took the sedan and turned it into a 2door coupe. The 4dr sedan looks great, but would make a much better A8 - as A3, it would be too small.

So few words, so much ignorance. The current A4 sedan is quite large. Larger than the BMW 3 series. The BMW 1 series slots in under the 3 quite nicely though with 2 less doors. Anyway, it shows there is obviously room for a smaller car than the A4. Also, about taking the A4 and turning it into a 2 door coupe... hmmm what exactly do you think the A5 is? Chopped liver?

There is room for a smaller sedan than the current A4. The 1st generation A4 was much smaller than the current one… and much more appealing IMHO. Both the A3 hatchback and the sedan in these pictures look really good to me!
