A new three-box version of the 300PS S3 will join the S5 and S3 Sportback in the manufacturer's S-series, with the quartet set to be rounded off by the S3 Cabriolet.
The latest model is set to feature a 2.0 TFSI engine, with turbocharging and direct injection and will deliver excellent power while still achieving 40.9 mpg.
It is able to hit the 62mph mark in just 4.9 seconds and when keeping the pedal to the floor, drivers can go up to speeds of 155mph.
It features a four-cylinder engine and brand new technologies, such as direct and indirect injection and the integration of the exhaust manifold into the cylinder head.
Weight has been minimised with a light aluminium bonnet, wings and front suspension subframe, helping to keep it to a trim 1,430kg.
Furthermore, Audi has helped to incorporate more passenger and luggage space into the vehicle, achieved by a new 35mm longer A3 Sportback wheelbase. The boot's carrying capacity also boasts 290 litres worth of volume.
The car is now available to pre-order and customers will be seeing the model reach their driveways in March 2014.
