The redesigned Audi A3 hatchback has been caught undergoing testing in Argentina. See the pictures after the jump

Spy photographers from Autoblog Argentina have snapped a couple pictures of the 2012 Audi A3.

Caught on Route 40, between San Rafael and El Sosneado, the three-door prototype is heavily camouflaged but appears to have a familiar design that is instantly recognizable. If you're still having a hard time imagining what the production model will look like, take a quick glance at the car's design sketches and A3 concept.

As we have previously reported, the 2012 A3 will be slightly larger than the current model and feature a lineup of petrol and diesel engines. There have also been rumors of hybrid and EV variants, but nothing is official as of yet.
