I'd have pushed for a Golf R if it had a dual clutch or something, so we were eyeing an A3 hatchback, but I told her to wait since I was hoping the new A3 Sportback would be offered in the US.
Ah. I don't know if other areas got DSG or not on the Golf R.
The A3 is moving to sedan ONLY. If you want the new A3 in a Sportback, the press release said the Sportback will only be their plug in hybrid motor.
You could prolly still pickup an A3 Sportback Quattro (DSG) at dealerships now.
