2014 Audi S3 Sportback Debuts

Audi is known to make some very interesting performance vehicles and a new car from the brand has turned up called the 2014 S3 Sportback. Sadly, the car isn't coming to the United States. Fans of hot hatchbacks in Europe will be able to pick up the S3 Sportback and it is powered by a 300 hp 280 pound-foot of torque two-liter direct injection turbo engine.

The little car is able to hit 62 mph in 5 seconds when equipped with the S Tronic transmission. Despite its performance, Audi promises 40.9 mpg. The vehicle uses Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system and has a number of options.

The Sportback is 1.37-inches longer than the standard three-door S3. Options include magnetic ride suspension, and full LED headlamps. The car comes stock with Napa leather with Alcantara as a no-cost option.
