Doesn't appear bound for production

Audi has carved a nice little niche for themselves by turning the A4 and A6 Avant into ruggedized Allroad models. With this in mind, our artists have whipped up a rendering of an A3 Allroad.

Envisioned to battle the Volvo V40 Cross Country, the model has a familiar appearance but is distinguished by a new front bumper, plastic wheel arches and aluminum side skirts. There's also roof rails, an increased ride height and a revised grille with vertical chrome accents.

While the model is undeniably attractive, Audi's Australian General Manager of Corporate Communications told Drive "There’s no official word at all about an A3 Allroad-type vehicle." Anna Burgdorf went on to say "For someone wanting an off-road-styled car in the small segment, we suggest a Q3 with an off-road pack which is almost identical to this vehicle.’’

This could be a nice competitor for the Suzuki SX4.

How can a car that is half the price of the audi be considered a "competitor"? They even are in the same segment for god sake... Sx-4 is from the same segment as Polo, Juke, etc

Good for you, but try living in a European city with a 4x4 truck.

Production of this concoction will make a Q3 pointless.
