Trust the Russians hey. These okes have leaked pictures of the all-new Audi A3 hatchback just weeks before it makes its world debut at the 2012 Geneva International Motor Show. The car will do battle with the BMW 1 Series and the upcoming 2013Mercedes-Benz A-Class in the premium sub-compact hatch segment.

The car looks very much like the current one, but is obviously quite updated on all fronts. This is just to have some kind of continuity and not confuse consumers with a radically different shape that has no links with its predecessor. Later it will spawn 5-door Sportback, Cabriolet and sedan versions.

A3 is expected to carry some of the same engines as found in the A1 and A4 range, which include a 1.6 TDI, 1.2 TFSI, an S3 and RS 3 range at a later stage.

Audi needs a new design direction because this is just too plain. i would rather buy the new A-Class and I didn't think i could ever say that in my life!
