    New A3

    Is there anyway of finding out a definate year for the current A3's replacement?

    I'm all set to order a new A3 but now I'm having 2nd thoughts as I dont want to buy one only for a new one to come out a year later! And I doubt the dealer will tell me as all they are interested in is a sale now.

    Its next year according to autocar, not much of a change, trim bumpers etc, looks like the back end might go like the sportback. The cabriolet is also launched next year.

    Last week AutoCar said a facelift version will be released next year, with new led lights, side repeater mirrors, new rear lights blah blah, and a completey new version on the road in 2012. And yes there will be a new golf mk 6 to cut production costs.

    But who knows....

    Surefire sign is when they start chucking reduced cost,or free,extras at the existing model,to get them shifted.
    Like they have with the A4 for some time (cheap satnav etc.)
    No sign of that with the A3....yet.
    I'm ordering my new company car soon and I'm deliberately avoiding cars that are due for a replacement,even if it's just a rumour.
    So the likes of the Honda Accord is out,for example.
    The new A4,Alfa 159,Honda CRV and 3 series are all in,because they are all relatively new models already.
    '02 to '05 - Black Audi A4 1.9tdi sport
    '05 to '08 - Akoya Silver A3 sportback S-line DSG
    '08 to ? - Black Alpina D3

    I can cope with a facelift, a completely new model would cheese me off though!

    The pic of the facelifted S-line bumper on that weird green Sportback does not look that hot anyway, prefer the current one.

    3 series is due a facelift Bowfer if you are interested http://www.worldcarfans.com/9070926....facelift-spied!
