Nice rendering here of the upcoming Audi A3 Coupe based on the new MQB platform. Will it look like this?
First and foremost, Chin’s re-working of the A3 sedan takes it in a more production-looking direction, which helps envision the car. Audi design boss Stefan Sielaff said the production A3 sedan will be just a bit taller than the A3 concept and this appears to have the more aggressive proportions of the show car. Also, it retains the frowning lower intakes with aluminum trim at the front that likely hint at the next-gen RS 3’s own appearance… but that’s a guess on our part.
As for a two-door coupe like Chin’s proposal above, we’ve heard nothing of such a body style thus far. That’s not to say it couldn’t happen though. It’s known that the next-generation A3 Cabriolet will be based on the notchback sedan bodystyle, meaning stampings like doors and interior trim will be in place for a two-door version. It wouldn’t be **that** hard for Audi to add this bodystyle… at least it’d be a lot easier than generations past.
