"Audi has lifted the digital veils of the all-new A3 Sedan, now in its second generation.
We have already seen photos of China’s long-wheelbase version of the compact four-door model earlier this month, but now it’s time for the first official images and information. As expected, the new A3 Sedan is based on the latest A3 Sportback, adopting its fresh design, modern technology as well as new drives and chassis.
Underpinned by the updated MQB Evo platform, the new Audi A3 Sedan is 40-mm (1.6-in) longer than its predecessor, measuring 4,500 mm (14.8 ft) in total. The wheelbase remains unchanged, while the width has increased by 20 mm (0.8 in) to 1,820 mm (6.0 ft) and the height has increased by 10 mm (0.4 in) at 1,430 mm (4.7 ft). As a result of these changes and the lower position of the driver seat, the compact sedan is said to offer 20 mm (0.8 in) more headroom in the front and some more elbow room. The luggage capacity remains unchanged at 425 liters (15 cu ft), though.
There’s not much to comment when it comes to the styling, as the only change compared to the A3 Sportback is the sedan-style rear end – even the taillights are identical. The sedan is 150 mm (5.9 in) longer than the hatchback, which contributes to a more elegant profile and enhanced aerodynamics."
