Apparently the S version of the new A3 will only be available in the 5 door body now called Sportback. (Europe does get a slightly sportier looking 3 door).
Specs are pretty impressive, with 300hp from the familiar 2.0 Liter Turbo
Competing with the new Focus RS and its 320hp.
But no more manual. As Audi is slowly replacing everything with DSGs now… Which is quite sad.
(The Focus RS offers a 6 speed manual)
Another sad thing is the design. I get the “understated” look. To a point. But this lacks any character whatsoever.
Shouldn’t a fun driving car be at least a little fun to look at?
