Report: A3 Lineup to Lose 3-Door Variant, Gain 5-Door Liftback

Undeterred by promising to end the copy-paste design language, Audi apparently has no problem with hitting imitation-paste on the model lineup.

Autocar reports that when the A3 gets its redesign in 2019, the 3-door variation will be excised from the lineup, for lack of demand.

That’s not too big a concern for us Americans, who can’t currently buy one anyway, but the go would still be sad in the greater human-family sense, since 3-door hatchbacks are dropping at an alarming pace.

The bigger news in all of this is that the lineup will instead gain a 5-door liftback that could without a hitch come to our shores. This will look a little more like the A5 Sportback, in that it intention be a four-door with the lines of a coupe and hatch that opens from superior to befor the rear glass.

This, it is being argued, will take on the Mercedes CLA, whose star can’t be ignored.

Finally, the sedan will stay on, though it will thicken slightly, with more leg room in the rear and a bigger trunk, according to Autocar.

As mentioned upon, expect the next-gen A3 to debut in 2019.
