The boys of Carwow Today they bring us a curious comparison that goes beyond the aesthetic plane or a simple acceleration race. Today it is about checking how the new generation of the Audi S3 Sportback, one of the compact ones, has improved or worsened in performance premium most successful hot peppers in our market. Let’s review the numbers for both.
The new generation of the Audi S3 Sportback is equipped with the well-known 2.0-liter TFSI block that develops 310 hp of power and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. It has the well-known quattro all-wheel drive and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, completing the 0 to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds. Top speed is 250 km / h.
The previous generation Audi S3 Sportback is equipped with the same 2.0-liter TFSI block that develops the identical 310 hp of power and 400 Nm of torque. They also feature all-wheel drive and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, declaring a 0 to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 250 km / h.
Apparently it might seem that both models will complete an endurance race very evenly, but it must also be remembered that the 2020 version is slightly heavier, with a total weight of 1,575 kilograms, compared to the 1,445 kilograms that the 2017 model declares. Which one would you bet on? Let’s check if you got it right.
