For those who can’t or won’t jump on a real crossover, the high-top 2023 Audi A3 crossover has been tested again and it looks like it could be named Allstreet.
Spy photographers have tested the five-door Sportback hatch in and around Nurburgring, and although the front, rear and side twisted masks make it difficult to choose the final bumper design, we can detect a slightly elevated ride height. and the discrete wheel casing seen on the new A1 Allstreet.
Previous test models were hybrid models with a connection, which is provided by the charging port cover on the side of the driver. But this latest test car seems to be powered by a conventional four-cylinder combustion engine, primarily a 1.4-liter petrol or a 2.0-liter diesel engine.
Audi began using the Allroad name for the car-based crossover more than 20 years ago, first on the A6 with a raised height and body, and later on the A4. But recently he used the name Citycarver for an extended version of the small A1 hatch.

Earlier this week, as this fake SU1 was rebranded as the A1 Allstreet, it is speculated that his older brother A3 will receive the same badge. The A1 Allstreet is only available with front-wheel drive, but if Audi places it as a premium product and chooses to make the A3 version all-wheel drive, it could switch to the Allroad tag. But if you can’t buy an S3 or RS 3 hot hatch in markets like the UK, the A3 Sportback will only be delivered with the front wheel.
Audi UK recently released the A4 and A6-based Allroads, but despite the increase in the number of actual crossovers on the market, the cars are still available in other markets, including Audi’s private dealers.
No matter what Audi calls its A3 crossover, we can expect it to be released in the second half of 2022 as a car in 2023, and by the end of this year it may launch its artificial crossover on the streets of Europe. But since the US will get only an A3 sedan, not a five-door Sportback hatch, this model may not be on this side of the Atlantic.
