    It is nice to see that non-RS models will now get honeycomb grills (which we could have guessed based on the new A1 and the facelift TT).

    Looks odd with the large honeycomb

    More of the same. There needs to be more differentiation between the models, not just a shrink ray from the A8 on down.

    And what's the deal with those lighted triangles in the headlights? I have a hard time imagining that design feature making it into production.

    Take the new Q3, lower it. Boom - there's your new A3/S3.

    I think it'll get some cues, but the next-gen A3/S3 definitely is pulling from the A8, whereas the Q3 takes from the Q8. If it gets a similar interior tot he Q3 though, I won't complain.

    Q3 for reference
