New spy shots show the upcoming next-generation Audi S3
mule testing in the hot desert before it's expected to join the new 2013 A3 line-up late next year. The prototype seen here is a three-door hatch, but the new A3 range will also be offered as a five-door Sportback and (for the first time) a four-door sedan. There is also the possibility that any of these other bodystyles could also be available in S3 form. Transmission choices should include a standard six-speed manual and an S tronic dual clutch.
