The debut of the updated Audi S3 Sportback 2013
Recently, the premiere of the updated Audi Sportback car related to the third generation of the A3 model took place. When creating this car, the German company decided to take a different path and presented a new car in a segment below the premium class. This was done to attract customers who previously chose middle-class cars..
The technical characteristics of the 2013 Audi Sportback 2013 are, as usual, excellent, therefore, in the new generation, the manufacturer decided to pay special attention to the exterior. As a result, the appearance of the new generation of the five-door sportback has become more athletic compared to what was previously offered. One gets the impression that the new car was younger, catchy dynamics appeared in it, quite a pleasant aggression and a bold character. But with all this, the stylistic features inherent to all Audi brand cars have not disappeared from its appearance, so identifying this car is not difficult. Well, to bring the exterior of the 2013 Audi S3 Sportback to almost perfection, additional options help: special-shaped wheels, fully LED optics and other aesthetic details of premium cars, which manufacturers decided to refuse to reduce the cost of the basic versions.
The five-door car Audi 3 Sportback received the following dimensions: width – 1785 mm, length – 4310 mm, height – 1421 mm and wheelbase 2636 mm long. By the way, in the manufacture of third-generation sportsback bodies, manufacturers use more hot-rolled high-strength steel, and some parts are completely made of aluminum, for example, a hood. This solution allowed to reduce the weight of the vehicle.
