Audi haven’t been as innovative player as its other two German compatriots namely BMW and Mercedes. This perception about the German company would change soon as Audi released the teasers of its Audi A3 based saloon concept. Needless to say, this car would be unveiled to the public at the Geneva Motor Show which would be held next week.
Audi would start marketing this car by the year 2012. It would also spawn a 5 door sportsback, 3 door hatchback as also a 2 door cabriolet versions. Sedan loving countries like China, North America and also Russia are expected to lap up this car. This new car would have Audi’s family face with an extension as also complete LED graphics. In the sketches, this car looks like an Audi A7. It would actually fill in the gap between the Audi A4 and the Audi A6 and customers would get a slightly more better option than the Audi A4. It is touted to have a 2.5 liter 5 cylinder petrol engine which will have an output of 408 Bhp and will be mated to a 6 speed auto transmission. This car would be built on an entirely new platform and one which would eventually replace the ageing PQ 36 platform. The new platform is dubbed MQB.
