The Audi A3 was originally set for a redesign for the 2021 model year but a brand spokesperson has confirmed that this is no longer the case stating that "there is no model year 2021 A3 actually - we skipped the 21 MY and the new/updated A3/S3 sedans will be MY 2022.
Skipping a model year is quite rare but does sometimes happen. Although no explicitly stated, we suspect Covid-19 may have played a role in the decision as many brands have experienced production-related delays because of the virus and have had to push back releases.
For those interested in the current body style, national inventory levels show that some are still available but may prove difficult to find. As for the redesign, there is no official release date but we expect the 2022 Audi A3 arrive sometime in 2021.
