According to the latest reports from Autocar, Audi will reveal not one, but two new models at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. One of the vehicles will be the A3 Sportback, a five-door version of the 2013 A3, a model that’s 39 mm longer than the coupe. The other model will be the S3, the sporty version of the A3, which will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 280 hp. Still, the power increase seems modest, as the current S3 model has 265 hp, so don’t expect impressive performances. Sources confirm a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 5.5 seconds. In terms of design, the new S3 will feature new front and rear bumpers, 18-inch wheels and twin exhausts.
