The Audi S3 packs sport-inspired design details into a compact silhouette. A Platinum Gray Singleframe® grille with Aluminum-optic double blade bars cuts a sharp figure. S model-specific front and rear fasciae and side sills provide athletic appeal, while S model quad exhaust outlets put the finishing touch on its performance aesthetic.
A compact body with 288 horsepower makes for a potent combination. The Audi S3 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® four-cylinder engine that produces 280 lb-ft of torque, sprinting from 0-60 mph in only 4.6 seconds and proving sport-inspired performance is at the heart of the S model lineup.
To help optimize stability and road traction, the S3 features a seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive system adjusts and fine-tunes torque distribution to help maximize grip and overall control, sending power to the rear wheels when it’s needed.
The available S Sport package includes red brake calipers and Audi magnetic ride which adjusts the firmness of the dampers through an electronically charged magnetic fluid within the shock absorber. The result: an elevated driving experience, no matter the situation.
Available MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate available maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.
As part of the available Navigation package, you can connect your Audi S3 to your world with Audi connect PRIME, an available intuitive system that integrates sought-after information like Google Earth™, weather conditions and traffic information. The Audi S3 is available with a six-month trial of Audi connect PRIME and Wi-Fi hotspot for compatible passenger devices with Audi connect PLUS online services, which requires an active Audi connect PRIME subscription. Combined with in-vehicle 4G LTE connectivity, getting connected has never been easier.
Available on the S3, parking system plus uses front and rear acoustic sensors and a rear view camera to help detect when you are close to another object. The driver’s path is virtually shown on the MMI® display to enhance parking awareness in the front and rear of the vehicle. This feature helps increase driver comfort when parking or leaving — especially in tight spaces.
