The Audi S3 Sedan 2.0 TFSI quattro®

High power, understated, with ample features and a high degree of everyday practicality – all of these strengths come together in the Audi S3 Sedan with quattro® permanent all-wheel drive.

The Audi S3 Sedan offers superior performance and groundbreaking efficiency. Its 2.0 TFSI engine produces 210 kW (285 hp) and 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) of torque. The high-performance four-cylinder unit combines cutting-edge technologies – dual injection into the combustion chambers and into the induction manifold, integration of the exhaust manifold in the cylinder head, the Audi valvelift system and the rotary valve module for the thermal management system.

In interaction with the six-speed dual clutch S tronic, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes just 4.9 seconds.

The sonorous-sounding four-cylinder turbocharged engine in the Audi S3 Sedan gives it a combined fuel consumption of just 6.9 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (34.1 USmpg) and CO2 emissions of 159 grams per kilometre (255.9 g/mi). A newly developed multi-plate clutch in the quattro drive train manages the flow of power to the front and rear wheels.

A key factor in the dynamic performance of the premium compact model is its lightweight construction. The Audi S3 Sedan has an unladen weight of just 1,430 kilograms (3,152.6 lb) – by far a best figure in its class.

The S sport suspension lowers the vehicle body by 25 millimetres (1.0 in). Large brakes are mounted behind the 18-inch wheels. Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) intervenes with fine sensitivity. The new progressive steering with power assist varies the steering ratio. It is somewhat more indirect around the center position and very direct when steering sharply. 5-mode Audi Drive Select is standard, with Audi magnetic ride available as an option.

 The Audi S3 Sedan boasts a wealth of S-specific design details, which will once again exceed the pronounced sportiness of the Audi A3 Sedan. These include the rear spoiler on the luggage compartment lid, the rear diffuser, the dual-branch exhaust system with oval twin tailpipes, exterior mirrors in aluminium look and the progressive steering which accentuates dynamism and sportiness. High-grade materials and first-class workmanship in the interior are testimony to the superb quality of an Audi S model. Optional S sport seats also convey an exceedingly sporty aura.

Other highlights include engine Start/Stop system, Audi Side Assist and B&O sound system.
