Images of the 2013 Audi A3 have been leaked online by a Russian publication revealing the all-new model in its full glory. The German auto maker is planning to perform the world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

Interior images have found their way to the webosphere, but it is the exterior images we are most interested in. Audi has already revealed the interior when it was shown at the Consumers Electronics Show in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year.

The model revealed here is the three-door hatchback. It will soon be followed by a five-door version, a convertible and finally a sedan for the first time ever in the A3 range. It rides on Volkswagen's new MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix) platform which will also underpin the new generation Golf.

The engine line-up is unconfirmed but is likely to include both petrol and diesel options. The petrol engines are expected to have an entry-level 1.2-liter with 105 PS (77 kW / 104 hp) and a 2.0-liter with 211 PS (155 kW / 208 hp). On the diesel side, we can expect a 1.6-liter TDI with 105 PS (77 kW / 104 hp) as well as a 2.0-liter TDI which pumps 180 PS (132 kW / 178 hp).

Expect to see full official details of the new 2013 Audi A3 to be released within the next couple of week.
