Audi is currently working on an A3 based MPV, the concept of which might get showcased in 2014. The original idea was to make a seven-seater “Superavant” based on the A4 platform, but a five-seater option seemed more practical.
In an interview with Auto Express, Audi’s R&D chief, Wolfgang Durheimer said, “I think there is definitely room for rational cars or family cars in the Audi line-up. But they have to be stylish, like any Audi.”
The MPV will be based on the VW MQB platform just as the current A3 and will have a wheelbase 200mm longer than the A3 Sportback. Audi plans to launch the concept model by 2014 and a production version might be released in 2015.
