I keep looking at S3's as we may need something a bit more practical than my current E93 soon. I know they have a reputation of being a bit dull but this car will only really be used to ferry the family around so that should be fine.
The only problem is the more practical 5 door looks a bit shi*te. The previous version used to look like a proper hatchback but now they've introduced this new fangled "sportsback" thing it looks like an estate car and I'm not ready to drive an estate car around quite yet. Not sure why they decided to add the extra window at the back and do this tbh, what was wrong with just keeping it as a normal hatchback? Audi have plenty of other estate cars if that's your thing.
