It may seem like the new 2015 Audi has gained a trunk and lost it’s roof. At least in North America where the hatchback variant is replaced by a four-door sedan, which will be accompanied by a cabrio. Although an A3 hatchback is available in Europe it probably won’t make it to our shores. The good news: if you’re yearning to get into a small hatchback-style Audi then you’ll be happy to know that the Audi Q3, a Compact Crossover,  will also be released later in the year.

The Audi A3 was produced in 1996 for the European market. It debuted in North America in 2006 as a five-door hatchback and was facelifted only once in 2009. Since we’ll only get the A3 Sedan here it is compared to the outgoing Audi A3.
