The sedan version of Audi's small new A3 is on its way, and new spy photos captured this week reveal that testing is now well advanced.

First hinted at by last year's A3 Sedan Concept - a show car that also previewed the face of the new hatch - the new model is expected to make its production debut toward the middle of next year.

We can likely expect the front end of the sedan to appear identical to its five- and three-door siblings, while the rear will likely remain largely unchanged - although softened a little - from the concept.

Built on the same 'MQB' platform underpinning the hatch, along with Volkswagen's new Golf, the Sedan should feature the same extended wheelbase offered with the new A3 Sportback.

Expect engine options to include 1.4 and 1.8 litre TFSI units, along with a 2.0 litre TDI diesel. Audi's new aluminium-block 1.2 litre TFSI unit will likely follow, along with an efficiency-leading 1.6 litre TDI diesel.

Judging by the large and familiar wheels of the spied prototype, along with the low ride height, we could also expect a 221kW 2.0 litre turbocharged S3 sedan to top the range, or even a new RS 3.

In concept form, the A3 Sedan featured Audi's 2.5 litre five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, sending power to all four wheels through Audi's quattro system and seven-speed S tronic transmission.

Unlike the RS 3, which utilises a version of the same engine, the A3 Sedan concept packed 300kW and 500Nm of torque - 50kW and 50Nm up on the all-wheel-drive hot hatch.
