This car won't be coming to the United States

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.

This Passat shares its name with the U.S.-built Passat but differs in being built on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB modular-transverse architecture that also underpins the Golf. What fortune! There just happens to be a fully developed plug-in powertrain in the MQ ...

Oct 1 2014 5:05pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Budget, Wagon, China, Europe, Paris Motor Show, Crossover, Citroën, Skoda Škoda may not get the bulk of our attention, but it's hard to argue with the nearly 1 million vehicles it moved last year. In terms of sales volume, that makes Škoda the third biggest division under the Volkswagen Group umbrella (after VW and Audi). The Octavia accounted for over a third of that, but despite having been introduced back in 2007, the Fabia remains its second most popular model wo ...

Oct 1 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Pride of place on Lamborghini’s stand at this year’s Paris auto show is the all-new Asterion LPI 910-4, whose specifications read — give or take a piston or two — like a Porsche 918’s. A whopping 910 horsepower is available thanks to the combination of a 5.2-litres of gas-fe ...
