    By deeper grille are you referring to the one piece grille that features on the S-line and the S3?

    Sportback is the 5 door version and S-line is just a trim level, if you have an S-line you get more standard equipment.

    Not sure if this answers any of your questions.

    The big front grille came in around late 2004.

    Sportback refers to the car whereas S line is the style kit you get with it. Imo without the S line the A3 looks pretty bland.
