Update: Audi has confirmed that the cabriolet has been discontinued for 2020. The sedan will continue to be offered.
Currently in its 2nd generation, the Audi A3 is expected to see no major changes for 2020. Given the fact that the car’s last redesign was in 2015, its next full revamp is likely to come sometime around 2021. Pricing and specs have not yet been announced. As far as a release date, we estimate a fall 2019 release based on last year’s schedule. Expect dealers to begin taking orders this summer.
Competitors to the A3 include the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, BMW 3-Series and Lexus IS. Later this year, the A3 will face a two-pronged assault from Mercedes in the form of the all-new A-Class and redesigned CLA. Will Audi respond with a compelling new offering? That appears to be unlikely at the moment.
This page will be updated as information becomes available.
