The old generation of the Audi A3 dates back to 2003 and was a reasonable success story for the German luxury automaker. We got the first taste of what the 2012 model has to offer with the three-door model launched in Geneva, but that’s not the full extent of what the new MQB platform has to offer.
Taking from the base front-drive A4 models at the bottom of the sedan rage will be this, the four-door Audi A3 sedan. The car is expected to be a huge hit on the Chinese luxury market and now autoevolution has a fresh rendering to show you what we strongly believe the car will look like.

The sedan will be 4550 mm long, about the size of a Jetta, but will offer much more in terms of interior luxury than its closest competitors. We can expect the engine range to be borrowed from the A3, meaning a revolutionary new three-cylinder engine, displacing 1.2-liters, running on diesel and producing 75 hp. The ultra-frugal unit will only put out 89 g/km of CO2.

To compete with Mercedes’s new AMG compact sedan based on the A-Class, the S3 sedan is rumored to arrive powered by a 280 hp version of the 2.0-liter TFSI.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
