The German model Audi A3 can get another modification – 5-door liftback. About this specialized publications became known a couple of hours ago. Journalists refer to their own, proven sources in the German brand.

By the way, it is possible that the new version of the Audi A3 will receive a prefix to the name Sportback. In terms of how the older model Audi A5 has a version with the same name.

The main competitors of the prestigious new products will be the second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLA and the upcoming BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe.

It is expected that in its new version, the Audi A3 will be more than 4,400 mm in length, which is 330 mm less than the Audi A5 Sportback. The A3 Sportback / Liftback will be equipped with conventional 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Also, this model will most likely have a full-fledged high-performance version from Audi Sport. In this case, under the hood will be a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with more than 300 hp, which will work with all-wheel drive system. This car will become a competitor to the “charged” coupe Mercedes-AMG CLA 35.

There are also rumors that, over time, the Audi A3 Sportback / Liftback will also receive a hybrid powertrain that will be able to travel up to 50 km on electric power only. And even a completely electric modification is not excluded, in this case, the novelty will be built on the basis of the MEB platform from the German concern VW Group.
