The First generation Audi A3 came to the market in the latter part of the Decade of the 90s. Its compact body design youth compared to the rest of the range and TDI engines revolutionaries got that soon become the Compact premium reference; scratching sales even to the footballer Volkswagen Golf, her “Cousin”. The second generation also had a great success in sales, providing a great leap in terms of Interior quality and new technologies, also debuting a convertible body.
With the third generation, it happened something very similar, increasing the quality and comfort of travel, as well as incorporating new technologies. In this third generation arrived, for the first time, a body of three volumes, the Audi A3 Sedan. Now, having spent half of the life cycle, already they begin arriving rumors about the next Audi A3. Seems to be that the fourth generation of the best-selling can land in 2019, in two years.
While the compact German has recently brought a restyling (that we saw in the recent test of the Audi S3 Sportback), based on the model has already several years in the market and, therefore, to be rather late start. BMW is planning the launch of the new BMW 1 series for the year coming, so hold the current generation of the A3 more time could lead to the loss of many clients. Apparently, the new Audi A3 you resemble an A4 though, to tell the truth, the front of the updated Compact has many similar with this medium sedan.
With respect to the mechanical, the Audi A3 may equipped with propulsion diesel and gasoline. It is virtually certain that displayed a plug-in hybrid version as the current A3 Sportback e-tron. At the same time probably reaches some variant look of 48 volts. On the other hand, logic invites you to think that the new generation of the Audi A3 will be partially lighter than today and that will bring new technologies in the field of active safety or Infotainment with WiFi connection systems; something fashionable lately.
