The five-door hatchback model is akin to what American consumers would consider a wagon, which is naturally one of the main reasons why it’s not heading to the U.S.

Popular in Europe, Audi is mulling over bringing the model to the Canadian market, which has been known to receive some vehicle models not offered in the U.S.

Still, it raises the possibility that the hatchback could also be offered in the U.S.
