    Looks alot like the A4 in that last pic I think.. It's one thing I don't like about the sportback is how similar it is to the A4..

    am i the only one who thinks the chassis looks very much the same, ie the pillars and roof even the lines to a certain extent, potential retrofit

    Lacks sex appeal.

    From the side its not enough of a change from the 8P.

    But I'll reserve full judgement until I see the s-line and S models, because lets face it.....

    the standard 8P was and the S3 was

    lets wait for the sportier badboys until full judgement can be made.

    As it stands, looks a bit rubbish tbh!

    I think the pics make it look very angular, which I don't like! but I'd need to see the sportified model before passing judgement.

    At the moment it's makes me very glad I purchased a new 2012 A3 2.0TDI Sportback in March. Perhaps it will grow on me over the next 3 to 4 years.

    It will make the 8P date over night once it's out and common place on the road. I like it and it's exactly how it should look considering all Audis look the same.

    All you guys saying it looks like a mini A4 the 8P Sportback looked like the B7 A4 too so no change there!

    This thread needs moving to the new A3 section.

    It looks like a combo of 8P, 8V & B8, mirrors look wrong tbh, but I like it atm, but its not finished yet, so I'll wait for judgement when got a leg in the door.

    I love the fact the A3 Sportbacks look like squashed A4 Avants. This carries that on. Can't wait to see one on air.

    I like the fact I can now see pricing & all parts for them lmfao.

    I especially like the fact it only shows 1 headlight for rhd & lhd on the adaptive type, finally an adaptable adaptive version!!!!

    I especially specifically like all the technology mods I could fit on a new car, urmm maybe I found my new car afterall.

    Well spotted. I've been looking at some of the parts in the latest ETKA but I'd not spotted the single headlight units for LHD and RHD.

    Yeah but only the adaptive headlight dave, which stands to reason given has L/R movement, so must have a calibration for lhd & rhd with this motor, cool huh.

    VW are launching the new Golf 7 on 4 September including a four-door version with the new GTI due to be released for the Paris Motor Show. This may give further information about the range of additional engines that will be offered on the new A3 and S3 as they both use the same MQB platform.
