You’re looking at the oh-nine Audi S3 Sportback, a personal favorite.
Slightly larger than the outgoing model, the S3 (and A3) now carry the new front-end that has made it’s way through the Audi line-up since the inception of the R8, including the love-it or hate-it LED bi-xenon headlights. The new S3 also features new interior trim, new adaptive-action shock absorber control (Audi Magnetic Ride), front and rear parking system, and 265 hp two-liter turbo bahnstormer that will take the S3’s five passengers and gear from zero to 60 in 5.8 seconds.

Cost: ~$32,000 (starting) @ Audi
