High power, a discreet understatement, ample features and a high degree of everyday practicality – all of these strengths come together in the Audi S models. Each model applies its power to the road with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.

7 kW (10 hp) more power and, in conjunction with S tronic, torque increased by 20 Nm
(14.8 lb-ft) – in the S3, Audi has raised the bar once more in terms of power. The 2.0 TFSI now generates 228 kW (310 hp) and with S tronic delivers 400 Nm (295.0 lb-ft) in the wide range of 2,000 to 5,400 revolutions per minute. Its NEDC consumption has improved in conjunction with the new seven-speed S tronic by around eight percent to 6.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (36.8 US mpg). By further optimizing the steering characteristics and exhaust system control, the Audi S3 drives even more dynamically. Besides the S3, the S3 Sportback, the S3 Sedan and the S3 Cabriolet also profit from the extensive new features.

In interaction with the optional seven-speed S tronic (standard in the Cabriolet), which comes with a coasting function, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes just 4.5 seconds in the Audi S3. The figure is 4.6 seconds for both the S3 Sportback and the S3 Sedan, while the Cabriolet takes 5.1 seconds. With a manual transmission (not available in the Cabriolet), the sprint time increases by seven-tenths of a second. The 250 km/h (155.3 mph) top speed is electronically governed.

The firmer S sport suspension lowers the vehicle body by 25 millimeters (1.0 in). Large brakes operate behind the 18-inch wheels with their S-specific design; the brake calipers are painted black (or optionally red) and adorned by S logos. The ESC stabilization control acts with particular sensitivity. The electrically assisted progressive steering varies the steering gear ratio – it is somewhat more indirect in the center position, but increasingly more direct when large turns of the steering wheel are made. The Audi drive select dynamic handling system is standard, with Audi magnetic ride suspension available as an option.
