Audi‘s next generation S3 model will also be available in Sedan form, featuring the same updated design and improved tech as its hatchback sibling.
 
We can see loads of sporty-looking bits underneath this prototype’s camouflage, such as the chunky front and rear spoilers, large dual-spoke wheels and most of all, the quad exhaust pipe setup which points to this being anything but slow in a straight line.
 
The new S3 Sedan will boast the same hexagonal grille and updated headlights as the rest of the fourth-gen Audi A3s. Still, the front bumper will feature bigger intakes, the profile will have more pronounced side sills, and the wheels will be bigger. At the rear, expect a slightly more elegant design compared to the current iteration, as well as updated taillights with modern graphics.
 
The interior of the next A3, regardless of variant, will have a surprisingly angular design judging by previous images. The dashboard is also driver-oriented, and is expected to feature the automaker’s 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as well as the latest in infotainment software.
 
Under the skin we expect a similar setup to what’s available right now, namely a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch and Quattro all-wheel drive, altough power and torque figures could increase from the current model’s 295 HP (300 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). Its main competitor, the CLA 35, has 302 HP (306 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm), so a slight bump is not out of the question.
 
Since it’s possible we’ll see the all-new A3 and A3 Sedan debut before the end of this year, the more performance-oriented S3 will likely show up in 2020.

What do you mean by this statement? S3 is targeting at CLA 35 and 240i Gran Coupe...

 

There is also the 5 door hatchback model in the line up.

I mean merc has A hatch, A sedan and CLA

 

BMW has 1er hatch, 2er coupe and are launching 2er gran coupe soon.

 

I hope A3 remain with A3 hatch and A3 sedan, don't need to add another variant

Audi has to choose to do things differently, and their 3 variant will not be a CLA / GC like, but more like a V40 X-Country. Yes, you read it first, the new A3 is rumored to have a 3rd variant, known as Cityhopper.

 

Apparently, Audi believes there is a gap between the Q2 and Q3 crossovers and wants to fill it with an A3 “Cityhopper.” Mind you, that’s the model’s codename (thankfully) and not the actual badge you’ll see on the back of the real thing. It’s not going to be “Allroad” either since the Four Rings won’t be giving the jacked-up A3 the Quattro all-wheel-drive system. In other words, the engine will still send its power to the front axle despite the car’s more outdoorsy nature. The decision to skip the all-paw system has reportedly been taken to avoid increasing the car’s CO2 emissions.
 
It will essentially combine a more rugged appearance with a slightly longer suspension travel, while the size is expected to be between the 4.19 meters (165 inches) of the Q2 and the 4.48 meters (176.6 inches) of the Q3, so look for somewhere in the region of 4.3 meters (169 inches). With Volvo deciding to change the V40’s body style for the next generation, it means there won’t be another V40 Cross Country using the current formula, so the A3 Cityhopper won’t have a direct rival in the premium compact segment. This new Audi would do battle with models from mainstream brands such as Ford’s Focus Active and Toyota’s rumored Corolla Cross.

i guess the trend is really adding more variant while using the same platform.

 

A bit pointless to have A sedan and cla competing with each other. In the same vein, the 'cityhopper' will probably compete with q2 (jacked up hatch)

 

then merc has GLB and GLC...almost similar dimensions
