[VIDEO]

Audi has revealed the 2013 S3 Sportback which will be showcased in March at the Geneva Motor Show.

Following the launch of the three-door version last September, Ingolstadt-based automaker Audi is now showing the five-door Sportback model. Under the hood is the same 2.0-liter TFSI, direct-injection turbo engine producing 300 HP (221 kW) at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm.

Connected to the optional 6-speed S Tronic, the new S3 Sportback will do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in five seconds, while with the 6-speed manual it needs 5.5 seconds. Regardless of the gearbox choice, the top speed is electronically-limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

With the S Tronic, the S3 Sportback returns 34.09 mpg US (40.8 mpg UK or 6.9 liters / 100 km) while with the manual it will do 33.6 mpg US (40.3 mpg UK or 7 liters / 100 km).

The 2013 Audi S3 Sportback has a curb weight of 1,445 kg (3,185 lbs), making it 70 kg (154 lbs) lighter than its predecessor. It comes with 18-inch wheels covered by low-rolling resistance tires measuring 225/40.

Power is transferred to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, while the S sport suspension lowers the ride height by 25 mm. The black front calipers measure 340 mm and can be optionally painted in red.

Wow that looks amazing. I also can't wait for the Mercedes Benz A45 AMG, these should be interesting cars. I definitely want to move from my giant CLS to a hot hatch like the A45/R(S3)

Don't like those circular air vents. Ugly. Everything else is fine.
