sgCarMart – The third and latest generation A3 was launched last year at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in its three-door guise. While the previous two models were based on the Volkswagen Group A platform (which was shared among other several models like the Golf, TT and Touran), the latest A3, like the Volkswagen Golf, is based on the Volkswagen Group MQB platform.
This platform, in simpler terms, is basically the group's strategy for shared modular construction of its transverse, front-engined, front-wheel drive cars.
While the A3 is your three-door hatchback, the car is also available as a five-door - Sportback - and a four-door saloon (coming to Singapore by the end of this 2013), which will go head on with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.
