Only four months after Audi revealed the 3 door version of the new S3, the German car maker has come up with the Audi S3 ‘Sportback’ that would go on sale in a few months of time.
The S3 Sportback has five-doors and offers better legroom and offers more boot space than the hatchback. Powering the S3 Sportsback is a 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine that has a max power of 300bhp and peak torque of 280lb ft. The motor is mated to a six speed manual/six speed S Tronic auto transmission which transmits power to all four wheels using the permanent quattro system.
The car has 0-100 kmph timing of around 5.5 secs for the manual and 5 secs for the auto. The car has a top whack of 248kmph.
The S3 Sportback comes equipped with S Sport suspension and sits 25mm lower than the standard A3. The car rides on 18-inch wheels. Braking duties are courtesy disc brakes all around.
