The A4 has grown from 178 inches for the B5 to the current B8 being 185.2 inches long. The E36 was 174.5" while the F30 is 182". Creating a smaller car, closer to the size of the B5 A4 or E36 is very appealing to some of us, those who find the current A4/S4 and F30 too big. The A3 sedan should be near the B5 A4 size, but as I stated earlier, will still have a transverse motor and Haldex, rather than a longitudinal engine and the sportier quattro setup.
