Audi teases the A3 sedan ahead of 2013 New York Auto Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 25, 2013

Audi has added a video on its YouTube channel that shows off a compact car with quilted seats. Fans believe that this means that a new Audi A3 will make it to the New York Auto Show. In this 43-second long video, there’s a man sitting in a non-distinguishable Audi. It looks as if the camera is positioned between the front seats.

This man then says that he is on the “hottest seat in town.” It seems that he’s at the back seat of a compact sedan with quilted leather side bolsters. These leather quilts are exactly the same as the stitching on the RS Q3 compact utility that was unveiled in early 2013. After the camera pulls back and a big sheet is thrown over the car, one gets the impression that it’s the eagerly-awaited Audi A3 sedan.

The concept form of the Audi A3 sedan was launched at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show. It’s likely to be equipped with modified versions of the 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 gasoline and diesel engines from Audi.

They would be partnered with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Furthermore, these cars will be offered with front- or all-wheel drive. The online launch of the Audi A3 is set to be on March 27 at 12:01 AM CET but for those on the east coast, it’s set at 7:01 PM on March 26. If you want to see the actual Audi A3 sedan, visit the New York Auto Show.
