The 2020 Audi S3 Sportback is a compact sports car from the brand with the four rings. Introduced in August 2020, its 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine provides 310 horsepower. Its presale begins in August, although the first units will not reach dealers until October. Its price in Spain starts at 53,900 euros.

The 2020 S3 Sportback is the fourth generation of the model. It replaces the one that debuted in 2013 and follows the 2020 Audi A3 Sportback, which is its benchmark.

The 2020 Audi S3 Sportback follows the recognizable design language of the fourth generation Audi A3 Sportback, with consequent sporting touches typical of the model and shared with its sedan body twin, the 2020 Audi S3 Sedan.

The S3 Sportback shares the same dimensions as the A3 Sportback, which translates into a length of 4.34 meters, a width of 1.82 meters and a height of 1.43 meters. Its wheelbase is 2.64 meters.

At first glance, the main visual difference between the S3 Sportback and the A3 Sportback lies in the treatment of the side air intakes on the front and the diffuser.

The front retains the Singleframe grille with octagonal motifs and applies a carbon fiber finish treatment to the brand emblem, contrasting with the chrome finish of the base model.

At the rear, that same transition from chrome to carbon fiber occurs in the diffuser, which grows as the air intakes grow.

The sports seats are newly created and include recycled plastic in their upholstery, which also sports a contrast stitching for a more aggressive point.

The dashboard is dominated by a 10.1-inch touchscreen integrated into the surface. Like other models of the brand, it recognizes gestures and voice commands.

The infotainment system features LTE Advanced connectivity and offers a Wi-Fi hotspot. The browser is based on Google Earth technology and shows the traffic status in real time.
