I think the 4 door formula will appeal to a wider audience. The Audi A3 sedan will also be 4 doors, maybe its not such a big deal to do both version, I personally like the 2 door in this size of a car.

As far as the Benz, I like the front, not much else. Still never a fan of MB so that might also be.

Hey more choices and more competition is always good for the customers so I'm all for Audi and MB joining the 2 series in the segment.

Definitely entitled to your opinion but your comparing a concept to a production car, it's not really a good comparison. Is it? Production and Concept?

Wait until the production Audi A3 sedan is seen to decide which is better. I'm guessing we're talking about the exterior design.

The Audi A3 sedan concept and Mercedes Benz Concept style coupe are good looking concepts.






We know what the front of the production Audi A3 sedan might look like, we'll see how Audi differentiates the rest of the sedan body from the 3 door hatchback besides the obvious body style.

Yes it does seems like from the b-pillars to the back that it's heavily influence by the CLS.

Yes, I agree with you. The front of the new 1 series is horrendous and by saying that I'm probably offending a whole bunch of BMW 1 series owner. Sorry.

Way too much going on, this car looks like a car an alien in a MiB movie would drive.

The best looking Benz was the current E class, every model that's followed has been a mess. The CLS has no flow and looks really awkward at some angles and don't get me started on the new SL and the goofy looking front end.

I was going to post the exact same thing. The finished product looks pretty good but that concept was truly fantastic.

Why get us all excited with the concept and then come out with something completely different? I would buy the concept in a heartbeat, but I'm not so sure I would do the same with the production version.

Every car manufacturer keeps doing this and it needs to stop.

The design looks good on a CLS, but that car is too small to have so many angles and such. It looks cluttered.

Looks great. I like how Benz has their own identity and keep pushing the envelope.

Audi and BMW are too busy making their cars all look the same.
