New Audi A3 spotted on test looks sharp

New Audi A3 spotted on test looks sharp

Three-door body style likely to be discontinued with the current-gen model

More powerful S3 version will arrive in a year’s time after the standard car’s launch 

Second version of the Virtual Cockpit display in the pipeline as an optional extra

We have caught the 2019 Audi A3 on test and it seems as if Audi has taken inspiration from the A1 for the newcomer. Launched in 2012, the Typ 8V is the third generation of the premium hatchback that’s also available as a sedan and convertible. 

However, with this new version, Audi is likely to make do without the three-door body style due to poor sales figures in just about every market where it is available. Expected to launch one year after the A3, a more powerful S3 should arrive in show rooms, either for the 2020 or 2021 model year. 

Turning our attention back to the way the new A3 looks, that tiny little triangle-shaped LED daytime running light signature up front is similar to what Audi offers in the A8 and the Q8. The form factor, side mirror caps, and window line are nearly identical to the current car though we would like to add that the roofline slopes downwards at a sharper angle than before. 

Nothing much will change inside the A3, though it’s certain the second version of the Virtual Cockpit display is in the pipeline as an optional extra. The A3 has always been the type of car that puts a bigger emphasis on technology over emotion. And that's perfectly fine in this day and age, more so from a German automaker.
