Audi A3 Saloon / Sedan Concept
With the Geneva motor show kicking off this week you are sure to see the web flooded with new car concepts and designs. Some will be damn right outrageous and never go into production, others though, like this Audi A3 Concept will no doubt become somewhat of a reality.
Although Audi is one of the biggest and most respected brands in the motor industry it has never been able to take the US, Russia and China under it’s spell. Those markets have a tendancy to lean to saloon / sedan models and the A3 has always been a hatchback, thus ruling the UK but struggling in other parts. Well that could now all be about the change when we expect Audi to bring their new A3 Concept to the Geneva Motor Show this week with release in 2012.
The show car will be fitted with the RS five-cylinder turbocharged engine, pushing out 408bhp and Quattro four-wheel-drive to stick it to the road. The seven-speed S-tronic double-clutch transmission completes the details we have at present, but we are sure there will be more this week. Now we know what you are thinking…
Now we like the design, it looks amazing BUT, surely this is just the next A4? If if not, shouldn’t it have been?
