Renderings: 2013 Audi A3 Sportback

The first glimpse of Audi's next generation A3 Sportback comes in the form of these renderings.

Audi's A3 Sportback has gathered quite the following as of late. Earlier this week, Tedesco Auto Bild released some renderings of the new 2013 model which are sure to get Audi fans everywhere excited. The next generation A3 Sportback renderings feature both 3- and 5-door variants. Dutch website Autoweek.nl reported recently that the new A3 will be built on Volkswagen's MQB platform. The MQB platform is currently being used by the VW Golf VII and will underpin the new Seat Leon.

Autobild says that the new A3 Sportback is over 100lbs lighter than the current version. Power will come in the form of either a gasoline engine or a TDI diesel engine. A hybrid engine will be offered eventually. Audi's next generation A3 Sportback is expected to debut at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show in March. The 3- and 5-door variants should both arrive in 2013. Pricing of the new A3 is predicted to be around €22,000. Rendering courtesy of Autobild.de.
