I was at a car event yesterday, and found the new Audi A3
The gas pedal have been moved from the floor...
Thanks for the info. Neat to see that A1 in the background too. The A3 looks great in this configuration. I hope they bring something like it to the USA. (sports trim, not eco) :-)
Wait, is that an A1 next to it or?
I was at the Audi shop on Friday.
I filmed the A3 interior (only a cellphone cam)
And some info (in norwegian)
The car as it sits here has the price tag of the equivalent to $ 61.480
the base price for the A3 in Norway is $ 50.196
And I took a couple of pictures of a audi A1 5 door.
Price as showed here $ 49.571
Base price $ 36.128

I love that new Audi taillight design (on the new A3 as well), that's already been featured in the new A6, A8, A5, Q3 at least. I don't know what you'd call it - "eyelashes"?
I prefer the front mask of the U.S. models to the Europeans ones, more evocative (the headlights and grill on the A8, for instance).
But in general the new A3 looks disappointingly similar to its predecessors.
Everyone should know by now that auto manufacturers are loathe to make radical changes with successful design language. If you get too radical you end up with the Ford DN101 Taurus in 1996, the Bangle-flamed 5-series or the current Honda Civic.
