Sitting in the dentist, reading June (?!?!?) 2008 issue of 'CAR'. Artists sketches of new A3, including one with a boot. Both were quite nice, certainly more boldly styled, although I'm sure I read both were projected for 2011. Audi state the A3 saloon is aimed at the North American market, where they don't like hatchbacks. They state it will be almost identical in size (inside and out) to an E46 BMW 3 series, and will be priced to undercut the 1-series.
