Product Overview

Audi S3 Sportback (Typ 8PA) is a compact hatchback in production from 2008 to 2012. It was powered by an inline-4 petrol engine that displaced 2.0 liters.
Just like the 3-door S3, the Sportback is available with both manual and DCT transmissions. It uses a single I4 engine that, unfortunately, Audi has to detune for certain markets to comply with local regulations.
Utility-minded owners will have to keep in mind that the 302L (11cu-ft) cargo space may not be sufficient.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Audi S3 Sportback uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.
