Introduction

What Car? says...

If your first thought when you see the Audi A3 Sportback is “Lamborghini Countach”, you’re either standing very far away from it or are part of Audi’s car design team.

You see, they quote the angular Italian supercar as one of the inspirations for the looks of this family hatchback. Taking the marketing spiel with a pinch of salt, it’s clear that the A3 Sportback's designers generally chose evolution, rather than revolution.
