Debuts later this year

Our spies have managed to snap some of the first photos of the Audi A3 sedan.

Designed to battle the Mercedes CLA, the production model closely resembles the concept that debuted at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. While the prototype is heavily camouflaged, we can see it will have a familiar front fascia with LED-infused headlights. The car also has a small trunk with an integrated spoiler.

Underpinned by the MQB platform, the sedan will measure roughly 4.44 meters (14.57 ft) long, 1.84 meters (6.04 ft) wide and 1.39 meters (4.56 ft) tall.

Engine options will likely carryover from the standard model, so expect choices to include:

  • 1.2 TFSI with 105 HP (77 kW) and 175 Nm (129 lb-ft) of torque
  • 1.4 TFSI with 122 HP (90 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque
  • 1.4 TFSI with 140 HP (103 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque
  • 1.8 TFSI with 180 HP (132 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque
  • 2.0 TDI with 150 HP (110 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque
  • 2.0 TDI with 184 HP (135 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque

The A3 sedan will debut later this year, so look for a possible unveiling in Geneva or Frankfurt.

It is heavy camouflaged, so hard to say whether cool or not. But it will sell, because loads of people like sedans over hatches. RS3 version would be a nice addition to the lineup. @v1p3r stock will probably, but s-line should fix it. But As I said, will see when camouflage goes.

Well, Skoda will be cheaper, but you loose quality tho. But Rapid starting from £13k-ish, I guess they are not comparable price wise.

Youre right, but i meant baby sedan wise. i cant help myself but all those small sedans, like the CLA, the Jetta und this A3 doesnt look apealing to me porpotionwise. The Rapide still looks proper.
