Also thought the A3 saloon would look could as a coupe...like a small A5! 8-)


I was also wondering if an A3 coupe would be in pipeline. Scaled down A5 would be cool! Would also be a BMW 2 series rival

Yep I can see that happening to compete with BMW. Merc already have the C class coupe as well. I love the A5 but a slightly smaller/less room in back seat would be great in my opinion. Quattro option would be awesome! :D ;)

Im sure merc will also bring out a CLA coupe as well. There has to be a market for cars like that :) seeing as the current 1 series coupe is very popular

I like it :)

Shame the launch engines & gearbox choices are poor

Are we getting the led lights though I'd wish they had fogs

LED headlights are not coming to UK until March 2014 at earliest for A3 /S3 all variants. Europe already have them and they are available on new Leon (however not fancy adaptive version like what Audi use).

To be honest this is one of the reasons im holding back on making a decision on getting the new S3 as if I'm going to get it I want the LED lights as they look amazing!

Now driving - S3 Sportback (wow....just wow!)

From what I've read there are a few new choices coming out shortly after launch. Think I saw on a car news website that manual 6 speed versions were coming for the petrol engines.

Just seen one of these at Goodwood, they look great. Pretty well priced too!
