This isn’t your aunt’s wagon. This is Audi‘s 2013 S3 Sportback, packing an aggressive bodykit, 18-inch wheels, and quad tailpipes to let its turbocharged 2.0-liter four sing as it puts out 300 horses. Set be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, the new S3 is a speedy option for those looking for a little bit more leg room and passenger space instead of the 3-door sportback released last year, but without any lack in control or speed. Just like the rest of the S3’s on the market, this one is offered with Quattro all-wheel drive, which puts all that speed coming through its 6-speed S Tronic trans down to the pavement, giving the S3 Sportback the ability to reach 60mph in about 5 seconds with about a 34mpg rating. Unfortunately for U.S.-based Audi lovers, the last generation S3 never made its way to our shores and all signs are pointing toward a similar fate for this one after it rolls off the stage in Geneva. Sorry to be a tease.
