The Audi A3 is a popular and good looking hatchback. It is, however, a bit too big and too expensive to be a real competitor in the world of the super minis, or the premium hatchbacks. With so many car brands having a model in this category (Citroen, Mini and Kia to name but a few), the famous Audi super-brand clearly thought the time had come to add their contribution to the mix.
Of course, we aren’t really meant to know what the A1 is like. Other than a funky graffiti teaser aiming at its new younger audience, Audi have been hoping to keep the looks of this sporty little car under wraps. Of course, that simply never happens, and we have seen leaked images of the brands new ambassador, JT, photographed in front of the A1. Whether this leak was accidental, or kind of planned, it has certainly given the world a taste of what is to come.
My first thoughts are largely positive. I like the sporty front, and whilst it does look a lot like other cars on the market there is only so revolutionary a car can be. I am also impressed by how well it channels the Audi brand, with the powerful front grille and great headlights.
So what do you think? Are you a fan?
