Great intel report here about the Audi A3 Sedan which will make its way to the US and many other countries (Germany has been confirmed yesterday by Audi’s boss Rupert Stadler).
Audi is not one to launch a concept car and not follow it with a production version. This is very much true in the case of the A3 sedan. Thanks to America and China, the A3 sedan is already a done deal and Audi’s design chief Stefan Sielaff tells us it won’t look much different than what you see here.
Word is that Audi of America boss and admitted car enthusiast Johan de Nysschen lobbied Germany hard for a four-door sedan during the earliest considerations of the new A3. It was de Nysschen’s view that the B5 A4’s departure and subsequent growth in size of the A4 over three generations during that decade since has opened up an opportunity for Audi All that being said, de Nysschen and the car’s other proponents had to make a business case and that’s where China came into play. Like Americans, the Chinese prefer sedans and the projected volume of both America and China made the prospect of an A3 sedan a no-brainer.
