Hot A3 Sportback revealed

Seat might have just released pictures of its sporty Leon SC coupe, but its German sister company Audi clearly fancied going hot in another direction – showing off the sporty five-door S3 Sportback.

Powered by a 295bhp version of the turbocharged 2.0-litre TFSI, acceleration to 60mph takes just 4.9 seconds with the optional S-Tronic gearbox, or 5.5 seconds with the six-speed manual.
