View Full Version : Is it coming and if so when?

Does anyone know if there will be an A3 Sportback with the 2.0T in Quattro with a 6 speed in the US? I think that would be a great combination. It would be something that I would buy if it came out. Also what will the S-Line feature?

Nope, I would think it would invade on the Golf's territory

No dealers are not taking orders for these yet, Audi of America hasn't even announced if we'll be getting them. It looks like they will, later in 2007, once they sell enough of the more expensive 3.2 A3 quattros (which, by the way, dealers haven't even officialy placed orders for yet).

No one really knows what's going to happen 2 years down the road. But as of this and next year, no Audi has no plan on bringing that platform over. There was a thread about Audi US limiting the platforms to limit their losses if the A3 doesn't go well. They are also trying to reduce the cost of having that platform (2.0T FSI Q) being approved by some US regulations. Sorry I couldn't be more specific, I'll see if I can dig that thread out somewhere in the vortex forum.
