The A3 will be all new in 2012.
The big news for us will be a new sedan version. Making the small Audi much more popular than the hatchback only currently offered in the US.

  1. A3 = Overpriced five door Golf.

    I laugh at people who buy these, or any VW for that matter. Who cares about the different interior.

  2. This is a vehicle for pretentious people who NEED a badge.

    Like someone else said above (October 6, 2009 5:40 AM), this is essentially a five door Golf with a different interior. It uses the same Golf basic powertrain, transmission, and some of the switchgear.

    Quattro is only offered on the outrageously priced A3 3.2 which can EASILY exceed 40,000 for Audis entry level vehicle.

    What a joke.

  3. Are you kidding? The A3 is only an overpriced Golf to people who can't afford one.

    The A3 has a better ride, looks better, has a stunning interior, dual sunroof, better warranty, better service, dual climate, great nav and more.

    I've owned a GTI and an A3. The A3 is in an entirely different class and worth every penny.

    If you are foolish enough to think that a $40,000 Golf is a good value, then I don't even know what to say.

    There are MUCH better choices in the market for $40K.

    That interior is FAR from stunning, a regular GTI has a nicer interior. You are also going to need that warranty. VW and Audi produce notoriously unreliable vehicles, ask JD Power or Consumer Reports.

  5. Put a Honda badge on there and people would think it was a Honda. Like how the Civic's tailights came from the A4. Or the MDX's came from the Q7. Honda isn't no one speacial I can get from A to Z.

  6. Save $8,000. and buy the VW Jetta sport wagon. The Audi A3 clone has a nicer grille and leather interior and tighter suspension but who cares.The current $ dollar exchange may push this car waaay overpriced. Audi just does not have the panache or resale to demand the up charge for this Mexico/ Brazil production car.

    Ummm the MDX came out before the Q7, it was released mid year and the Q7 later on in 2007.

    Also, the design for the Civics tail lamps was finalized before Audi decided to refresh their A4.

    Your spelling isn't very special either…

  8. Oh really? So what the Camry came out before the Acura TL and they're headlights look alike. Like the 2nd generation Lexus RX, Acua pushed it's back pillars toward the back. The Civic's headlights looks like it came from the 2002 Galant. The Insight looks like a Prius. As for my spelling, I'm not the only one who miss spells words on here college professor.

  9. I can get Honda too college professor. I hope my spelling is SPECIAL I want to get an A after I put Honda as copying too. The new Pilot's back end came from the Scion XB. Now didn't the XB get redesigned in 2007 and the Jeep looking Pilot come out in 2009?

    How's my spelling teach? Who came out with the new headlight desing between Lincolon and Acura huh?

  10. "Ummm the MDX came out before the
    Q7"

    So and Audi made it looks better. Also don't start this first last thing becuase the CR-V's headlights came from the 2006 Kia Soul Concept.

  11. Yeah that first come first serve thing is so not always true. For example the 2009 Kia Borrego arrived after the 2005 Kia Mesa was shown. Between the years 2005 to 2009 a lot of companies copied the Mesa. Like the Subaru Forster. BOF takes longer to make.
