Audi lifted the sheets of the all new A3 which is a bit longer and has more space than the current A3.It is the five doors Audi A3 Sports back. The A3 usually is a small family car, the Germen auto maker Audi is creating since 1996. The platform which was based on to create the first two generations of Audi A3 was the Volkswagen Group ‘A' Platform.

The A3 shares this platform with other several cars such as the Audi TT, the Volkswagen Caddy, the Volkswagen Touring and the Volkswagen Golf as well the Skoda Octavia, the Seat Toledo and the Seat Leon.
But the third generation A3 is based on Volkswagen Group MQB platform.

The new A3 is a bit larger than the current model but it weighs almost 70kg less. The A3 Sports back is a five doors model which has more boot space than the current A3. The hatchback has 380 liters of boot space and can be extend up to 1230 liters by folding the rear seats.

The highlight of the Sports back is the longer wheelbase of 2634 mm and its light weight. There is an extra feature of LED lights in the boot space. The A3 Sports back with its greater features adds a new class to the A3 portfolio. A sedan version is coming soon according to Audi.

The new A3 Sports back reviled in the Paris Show offers some differences then the current A3. The car is 4311 mm long which makes it 73 mm longer and with 58 mm longer wheelbase makes the car extra spacious. With all those extra features the car will be available with two petrol engine and one diesel engine option.

The angled upper corner single framed grille fitted in front of the new A3 Sports back is the thing that is different from the A3 three doors. The new A3 has a new modified tapered off xenon headlights with daytime LED running lights. Despite this the new A3 looks the same from outside.
There is actually no change has been made in the interior. Most of the inside of the car is same as previous except it is much bigger and spacious. There is a central screen, MIMI and other upgrades with spacious cockpit. However the most important upgrade is the bigger amount of comfort.

The A3 Sports back got the same engine as the A3 current three doors and five doors models. The car is equipped with 1.4 TSFI and 1.8 TSFI petrol engine and 2.0 TDI diesel engines. With two diesel engines and one gasoline engine models are also about to come in later time, announced by Audi.

All the petrol and diesel engine units are provided with a six speed manual gear box with also S Tronic transmission.
