Audi concept previews new A3 saloon

New four-door saloon to join Audi A3 line-up.

The Audi A3 concept will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1, previewing not only the look of the next generation A3, but also the expansion of the line-up to include a four-door saloon.

While the exterior styling will grab the attention of show goers, what's underneath is just as interesting. The A3 concept packs a turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine producing 408hp, the same engine thought to power the production version of the Audi quattro concept.

Naturally power is fed, quattro-style, to all four wheels via a seven-speed S tronic (dual-clutch) gearbox.

At 4.44m long, 1.84m wide and 1.39m high, the concept is longer, wider and lower than the current Audi A3 Sportback.
