Audi's next-generation A3 hatch has been caught on the road again this week, offering the clearest look yet at the finer details: the shape of its headlights and tail-lights.
The story is the same at the rear, with the new A3's taillights starting wide at the outside edges and tightening to a narrow point above the number plate.
While the five-door hatch shown here features a practical high roof-line, buyers expecting a more dynamic shape for the next-generation A3 will need to see how the three-door variant turns out.
Earlier photo sets have also offered a look at the new A3's interior, revealing that its styling will carry over virtually unchanged from the A3 Sedan Concept.
A six-speed manual shifter replaces the 'button-and-dial' automatic transmission of the sedan concept. The interior door panels are also largely identical to their concept counterparts, differing only in colour and stitching.
