  • Saloon = Parcel Shelf
  • Sportback / Hatch = Wheel
  • Cabrio = N/A
  • e-Tron = under cargo mat in Boot / Trunk (L shaped)
These are what's supplied from the factory. Personally I would just go with the wheel mounted sub, other than the e-tron as there is no space, as the wheel has an enclosure and the shelf is open.
 
I replaced my OEM sub with a shallow jbl 8inch subwoofer powered by a small ds18 candy amp pictured in middle. Made a huge improvement without sacrificing cargo space.

To get the sub to fit, just made two mdf brackets and secured in the oem mount points. Used some weatherstripping as well to make sure there wood and speaker on the metal would rattle.
