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.

Middleburg, VA — One of the most understated product launches in recent memory, that showcasing the mid-cycle freshening of Volkswagen’s Jetta sedan for 2015, instantly calls to mind the aphorism generally attributed to German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe: “God is in the details.” The story for the compact four-door is, notes VW Canada, one of “refinement.” Indeed, there are copious detail changes to this mo ...

Originally debuted to a small number of customers at the Concours d’Elegance a few months prior, the project went cold when Bentley’s former CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer left the company.With Duerheimer gone, Schreiber told journalists “we will not do that car,” saying there was “just regional d ...

2015 Acura TLX: First Drive

Aug 29 2014 8:57am CDT | Source: Cars.com

For years the TL sedan was Acura's bread-and-butter sedan. It was a strong seller until a radical redesign in 2009.

Related: 2015 Acura TLX: First Look The TLX not only replaces the TL, but also the smaller TSX sedan — which was less controversial but didn't fit properly in the brand's lineup, which also now includes the even ...
