Audi Shows Official Photos of the New S3 Sportback Before the Geneva Motor Show

The brother and rival of the upgraded Golf will lose its camouflage wrap in a month, although it is already possible to study the new S3 Sportback.

The new-generation Audi S3 Sportback will get an upgraded running gear, a 310-hp engine and 0.6 seconds better acceleration dynamics. The manufacturer describes the character of the new product as «dance on a volcano».

The S3 Sportback hot hatch is equipped with a multi-link rear suspension, a MacPherson strut at the front, and an upgraded steering rack to improve handling. The model runs on a 2-liter TFSI turbo engine that develops 310 hp and 400 Nm. It is paired with a 7-position dual-clutch transmission and an AWD drivetrain. The torque is distributed equally between the axles, but the more the clutch plates are pressed together by this pump, the more drive torque is transmitted to the rear axle – the maximum is 100 percent.

The upgraded powertrain and new components will provide the new S3 Sportback with better dynamics: a 0-100 km/h time is 4.7 seconds – 0.6 seconds better than the current hatch. A top speed will be limited to 250 km/h.

Audi will unveil the new S3 Sportback at the Geneva International Motor Show early next month.
