Successor of the Audi A3

Audi is dead serious, getting more aggressive and more ambitious about its goals in the U.S. and worldwide. The German auto maker, tired of living in the shadows of BMW and Mercedes, is set to double its model count by 2015. “We have 22 vehicles in the lineup already and the other 18 in our heads,” said Michael Dick, Audi’s Product Development Chief in late March.

Well, one of the models in the lineup includes the 2010 Audi A3, succesor to the baby Audi. The whole LED craze that started with the Audi R8 will be carried onto every upcoming model including the 2010 A3 with LEDs in the headlamps, taillights and side-view mirrors.

Auto Motor SPort is reporting that the 2010 Audi A3 will come in three versions including a coupe, 3-door hatchback and a convertible.

The 2008 Audi A3 convertible was confirmed last week and is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next year.
