    A3 Saloon! Why?

    Whilst avoiding watching Big Brother, I've been looking around a German Audi forum Clicky and stumbled across some photoshopped pics of an A3 saloon!

    Pic 1

    Pic 2

    IMO, Pic 1 looks pony and Pic 2 is identical to an A4.

    Thought you might be interested though ....

    Absolutely awful.

    Almost as pointless as a focus 'saloon'

    Pic2 link doesn't work.

    Soz,

    Have fixed the link. Pic 2 above should now work.

    I agree - an A3 saloon would be absolutely pointless.

    What's really worrying is that at the bottom of Pic 1 is says "A3 Sedan 1.4". [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Agree there's no need, but I actually think Pic2 looks mint - back end looks like an old school maserati. Certainly much better than the A4. Unfortunately I think the proportions look good because they have cheated and lengthened the wheelbase.

    Who knows - after all, there was no need for a Golf saloon but it still happened...

    That is an A4 with a Sportback front end pasted on and some RS4 wheels for added bling.

    VW did with the Bora?

    Did they sell as many Boras as Golf? Doubt it somehow.

    Hey, I'm not saying the Bora was a stroke of genius, I'm just saying it happened! Personally I couldn't care less if Audi bring out an A3 saloon - doesn't affect me.
