The Audi S3 is available in saloon, cabriolet, and sportback
models. The S3 has a long history and was first released in 1999. Since then,
it has come a long way, with hatchback and convertible options available. The
Audi S3 received updates in 2001, 2006, 2008, 2013, and 2016. The S3 saloon is
now available, subject to availability when buying, new. The cabriolet was introduced
in 2014 and updated in 2016, along with the saloon, the sportback has been
around since 2008, getting facelifts in 2013 and 2016. The S3 was derived from
the Audi A3 and has since evolved.
Over the years, the Audi S3 and its various models have changed to offer several distinct products. The latest S3 models were released alongside updates to the A3, giving the S3 more power and new visual details too. All S3 models have a top speed of 155 mph, with a slightly faster acceleration time for the saloon and sportback options, reaching 62 mph in 4.7 seconds. The 2.0 TFSI engine of the S3 puts out 310 HP and 400 Nm of torque, with the other models also benefiting from the latest features.
The S3 Saloon and S3 Sportback both offer two trim options of standard and Black Edition, while the cabriolet has just one trim option. The S3 saloon offers 19” x 8J “5-arm wing” alloy wheels in gloss titanium look, S Sport suspension, dual-branch oval twin tailpipes in chrome-plated finish, fine Nappa leather, and heated front seats. The Black Edition trim ramps up the offering with 19” x 8J ”10-Y-Spoke” Audi Sport alloy wheels in gloss black, black styling pack, privacy glass, black door mirrors, and a Bang & Olufsen Sound System.
The S3 Sportback base trim benefits from 18” x 7.5J “5-twin-spoke star” alloy wheels in contrast grey and the same features as the saloon car. The Black Edition Trim also follows the offerings of the saloon car, with 18” x 7.5J ”5-arm trapezoid” Audi Sport alloy wheels in gloss anthracite black.
