And now Audi is all set to launch a new sedan based on the Audi A3 hatchback. The new sedan conceived on Audi A3 will be placed below Audi A4 featuring a tad longer wheelbase and roomier interiors. Audi’s new sedan will be inspired from the MQB platform with aplenty use of aluminium in the body of the car; this will be done primarily to reduce the weight of the car. Audi may power the car with two different engines, including the 1.8 L turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol mill and the 2.0L turbo diesel 4-cylinder engine.

BMW has nothing up its sleeve to juxtapose with the new sedan from Audi A3 sedan. However, it could bring something in line with the 1 Series model to cross swords with the rival.
