The compact premium par excellence has reinvented itself again and the new generation of the S3 is now a reality. The new Audi S3 in Sportback and Sedan bodies arrives with compact proportions, a sporty design and many innovations from the upper segments.
While maintaining its continuity character, highlight the wide grill Singleframe and the large air intakes at the front, which accentuate the dynamic character of the car. We find new Matrix LED headlights, muscular surfaces that place greater emphasis on the wheel arches and a rear that inevitably reminds us of the latest Audi Q3.
The sporty and sophisticated design continues in the interior with the new gear lever, aluminum or carbon inlays, eye-catching door openers and an instrument panel with a black panel look. How could it be otherwise, digitalization takes control in the interior of the Audi S3, with elements that are very familiar to us.
The dashboard is dominated by a 10.1 inch touch screen as standard. It recognizes handwriting, provides acoustic feedback, and can be voice controlled using natural language. Now the MMI is 10 times more powerful than its predecessor and can be equipped with the latest connectivity technology.
The new S3 models are powered by the 2.0 TFSI engine, which yields a power of 228 kW (310 hp) and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. Both models accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 250 km / h.
The driver can use the dynamic driving system Audi drive select, part of the standard equipment, to make the sound of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine even more prominent.
