The headlight shape looks like the ones on Lancer.

I like it. I hope I can afford to drive one in about 5 years.

But I was looking forward to the dual 17" LCD/DVD option for $3k.


acutally, that's not that far from what their interiors look like now, minus the LCDs, white color scheme and air vents.

The A7 is also an interesting new car.

I think the A4 sedan stays in the lineup as the A4 has really grown in size recently. The new A3 sedan is supposed to be more like the size of an old B5 series A4 sedan while the new A4s are more like the size of an old A6 sedan.

tbqh, the current A3 is perfect. I did have a fondness for the marshmallow A3s that had preceded them as well.
I'm currently driving a caddilick and a truck so... dumbestic powers activate!
I dunno if i can go to a cramped Audi engine bay and find happiness.
Also, driving a caddilick is like driving while sitting in a lazyboy recliner. Holy. Fuck. I've realized what I was missing when driving a 3 or a 5 series even. I love how American cars are designed for the Ralphie Mays of Houston or the asa's of genmay.

It doesn't need a facelift. The current gen is pretty much perfect as is. The stupid front vents look horrible and because of the marketing, if I say A3, people are going to picture the RS3 which looks like a GTI that had sex with a gaptoothed fuckface (Couldn't think of anything).

It's a Scirocco with a better interior
An overpriced Scirocco with no noticeable improvements.

The only reason they are doing this is to convert more cocks from BMW. A 3 for a 3. The 1 is the same size as an E36 and the A3 is between E46/92 w/ regards to size.

I never understood the appeal of the A3 when there exists the GTI.

I like the look and it is obvious that it is fitting in the pants that the A4's waist has outgrown in the recent update.

The interior will likely make it to production other than a few minor tweaks and color selections. Audi is notorious for creating concepts that are 98% of the final product. That said, I am slightly annoyed by the parabolic (correction, more accurately concave) dashboard design. That is the same shit BMW started a few years ago and it looks fucking retarded. The concave designs or even flat were much nicer and flowed into the doors better. The best interior layout to me is cockpit, driver-centric, but that seems to be loosing place in a lot of cars in recent years.

This. You're paying an extra $8k for less car.
