An extra boot and a 'tailored' sheet metal mark the Audi A3 sedan as a desirable and good-looking addition to the A3 lineup.

Audi introduced the third generation A3 Sportback in May last year in Singapore, one of the most frugal luxury hatchbacks that sports the same MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix) platform as the Volkswagen Golf. By end of last year, it launched the S3 Sportback, the 'spicier' variant of the A3 Sportback.

'Futuristic' taillights further differentiate the A3 Sedan from the A4


 
Now, Audi has pulled the sheets of the A3 Sedan, the 'extended' member of the A3 family that could well be one of the best compact luxury sedan choices in the COE Category A at the moment.

First unveiled in New York Auto Show last year, the A3 Sedan is also underpinned by Volkswagen's adaptable MQB platform. While that may seem like a rather predictable outcome from the German marque, it's no bad thing - considering how engaging similar cars fitted with the modular platform are.

Seeing how Audi's handsome design language hasn't changed much over the years, the sedan here looks instantly recognisable. As such, casual observers will easily mistake this latest compact four-door for an A4 from the front.

Differentiation from the rest of the sedans in Audi's lineup will start to show once your eyes flow through the clean, crisp lines from the side to the back. Over here, the boot is seamlessly and stunningly integrated into the A3.

While most hatchbacks don't usually grow a boot gracefully, Audi has done well in attaching the bigger butt without coming across as just a 'joined' formula.

Dual exhaust pipes give the car a sportier appearance


 
At 4,456mm x 1,796mm x 1,416mm (L x W x H), the A3 Sedan is almost 150mm longer and 11mm wider than its hatchback brethren but remains to be some 245mm shorter than the A4. Comparing its size to the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the A3 Sedan may be shorter, but it's wider and lower.
