According to a recent report, Audi will build a sedan variant of next-generation A3 exclusively for the United States.

While details are limited, Audi of America's CFO, Oliver Stein, has reportedly stated the A3 sedan has been given the green light. It will likely go on sale in 2012 (as a 2013 model) and should be about the same size as the A4 that was produced from 1994 to 1997 (aka the B5).

Offered with front-wheel drive and Quattro all-wheel drive, the A3 sedan will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with at least 210 hp.

Following recent reports of the Volkswagen NCC Concept going to North America as the next generation Jetta sedan, it's easy to speculate that this vehicle will serve as the basis of the A3 sedan.
