The word Minimalism is one that quite suitably describes the design of the new Audi A3. Elegant, simple and – for many people – just plain beautiful, the new generation A3′s bodywork eschews the prevalent trend for busy body surfacing and dramatic character lines. The undeniably “politically correct” exterior design which is in stark contrast to that of its direct rival – the BMW F20/F21 1 Series - is also mated to a stunning interior, featuring not only great design but also great materials too. Presently, all of this style is offered in 3-door form only with the 5-door configuration (called Sportback) to become available later.
Today, we were lucky enough to be tipped off in our public forum with two photos of the 5-door A3. Just like the 3-door version, the design is simple and elegant, with the differences between the two versions being kept to a minimum. As far as any official announcement is concerned, Audi hasn’t placed anything on record though we do expect the new A3 Sportback to appear towards the end of 2012.
