2012 Paris Motor Show in pictures – part 1

Word on the e-street says the five-door Audi A3 Sportback could join the impressive list of debut models heading to the bright lights of the Paris Motor Show next month. A little early perhaps? We’ll see. If nothing else it’s a good opportunity to share this new rendering showing the five-door layout. We reckon it’s […]

When Audi launched its latest generation A3 at the Geneva Motor Show back in March they only gave us the three-door layout. Word is we won’t ever see a three-door A3 in Australia again (we hope our info is wrong, by the way), so aside from getting a good look at the general style and […]

When the new Audi A3 was officially launched at the Geneva Motor Show Audi Australia weren’t willing to divulge their launch plans.
