Photos of the 2012 Audi A3 hatchback have leaked out ahead of its official debut. The new A3 will arrive at Geneva officially in March.
The leaks continue apace with the 2012 Geneva Motor Show just round the corner, and now we have photos of the new Audi A3 (2012 – 2013) in 3-door hatchback guise ahead of the official release.
The new Audi A3 looks very similar to the current car, although under the skin it is the first Audi to use VW’s new MQB platform which will soon be proliferating around the VW Group, and will also be used for further variants of the new A3, including the A3 Sportback, A3 Convertible and even an A3 saloon.
The new A3 seems to bring together much of Audi’s current design themes, with the new square corner grill and an interior that seems to take its influence from the Audi A1. Without official details (which you can be sure won’t be far off), we have no bug detail, although we know there’s an all new MMI system in the A3, a heads-up display and an electromagnetic hand brake.
More as soon as Audi delivers official detail.
