AUDI S3 Sportback 2013 - Present
The three-door version was unveiled last year at the Paris Motor Show in September, but this is the newly launched five-door version, which has a longer wheelbase and a lot more practicality.
With a large boot, full leather interior and the latest Audi MMI infotainment system, the S3 five-door does the boring stuff quite well. But it's also the perfect way to get five people's pulse racing. That's because its 2.0-liter TFSI engine has been tuned to produce no less than 300 HP and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm under the hood.
The S3 Sportback is available with a standard six-speed gearbox that gets it from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. But, this sort of luxury compact is best bought with the S tronic gearbox, which makes the car a lot quicker off the line: 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds. In both cases, the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
