2014 Audi S3 convertible caught testing in the snow

Slowly the German brand introduces new variants of the A3, but before that each vehicle has to be tested in low and high temperatures. And that is what we have here, the Audi A3 convertible, but this time it isn't based on the hatchback but on the soon to be introduced sedan.

And this is also the fastest version, the S3, that will have a new 2.0liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine with 296hp and 380Nm (280lb/ft) of torque. This engine will be available with a manual or a dual-clutch transmission, possibly with the four-wheel drive quattro system.

One advantage of being based on the A3 sedan, which rides on a larger MQB platform, is the bigger space for luggage and rear passengers
