2021 Audi A3 Sedan debuts, completely new, but doesn’t look it

Some days ago, we reported the launch of the 2021 Audi A3 Sportback, which is probably not slated for the Middle East as the reception for any pricey premium hatchback in our market has been lukewarm at best. But there a new iteration of the Audi A3 sedan for 2021, which will make its way into the market as the least expensive offering from the German brand, at least in the GCC.

The Audi A3 is the stepping-stone to the German giant’s range, if you ignore the Audi A1 that’s been discontinued in the GCC due to slow sales.

Downsizing is rampant nowadays, and the same goes for premium cars. We’re not talking about job losses, but the size of cars. The Audi A3 started life as a lacklustre hatchback about a decade ago, and we called it out as such back then.
