    This confirms the World Car Fans rumour article, which said:

    New A3 saloon concept at Geneva.
    New A3 complete range at Frankfurt (Sept)

    flaming surface on an Audi? I thought they were trying to ride it out until it went out of style so as not to give in to BMW's design.

    Yet again its only DSG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why for f**k sake audi, some people like a manual gearbox on a sports car.

    Thats why i cancelled getting an RS3, i could live with the 5 door but i just cant stand DSG, but each to their own.
    S3 gone but not forgotten, now on a Golf R

    The new saloon (sedan) version is aimed at the US market where they much prefer an automatic gearbox.

    I'll make my mind up when I see an actual production "new A3", hopefully when I visit the Frankfurt Motor Show in Septemeber.

    Not sure I'd be happy if I'd ordered an RS3 then found out about this. OK, it's only a concept, but ...............

    Looking forward to seeing the rest of the range at Frankfurt in September - think I'll trade the S3 in for a deisel when the new model comes out, price of fuel is just getting too ridiculous

    I like it, Dunno if I'd pick it over the hatch Will have to see what the pics of that look like. I like the grill shame you'll loose half of it for a reg plate. Think it would of looked loads nicer if they'd brought a white blue or gun metal one along to geneva though. Im due a trade next april so have to see what comes along by then
