    I'm sure that the images are artists impressions but they kind of fit in with current Audi styling (A5, A4, etc.)

    No mention of the RS3 though! :crying:

    Looks quite nice. At least Audi haven't ruined the A3!!

    Anyone know when we can expect the release of the new A3?

    Sorry! Should have read the article first - It's says early 2011. Should be about right for my next change of car.

    Every time a new car comes out people say they hate it, but once its been out a year you'll be amazed how dated your 'old' ones are :D

    Ford focus, latest BMWs... I thoughtb them all hideous when they first came out but look awesome now. Well, maybe not awesome, but better than before!

    Twin turbo diesel, now that's more like it. My 170 feels quick but that would be on a whole new level. Im surprised Audi don't have a 123d equivalent already tbh

    My sentements exactly. Its the rear lights that do it what a shame. Im proud to be an Audi owner but if they carry on making cars like that, I certainly wouldn't buy another one.:shrug:

    I'm having same thoughts, for me thats pretty **** for a new car, then again its not definitive as yet huh, but they seem to be losing there way in styling & differentiating between the luxury S cars & the lesser lines, I do like the Rocco man, everytime I see one I think thats a nice car, everytime I go into dealer now weekly that is all the cars look the same, lol

    Did Audi step on a Q5?...I think it looks pretty good, exactly what’s needed!, I'm awaiting delivery of my A3 sportback however if I'm brutally honest I think it looks dated even with the facelift. I still preferred it to anything else in its range however. I think it’s stepped away from the similarities of the last A4 Avant to the A3 Sportback giving the range a bit of difference. A4 is now closer to the A6 leaving the sportback as more of a hot hatch at last...

    This looks too much like the 1series. Its looking cheap too, like a focus.

    I was hoping for a more rounded n grounded motor like the rocco :(
