Car video reviews:

Body style: Hatchback
Segment: Entry Premium

The 3rd generation of the Audi S3 was released in 2013 as the fastest 4-cylinder ever built by Audi.

The liter capacity was the same as for its predecessor, however, the 2.0-liter engine was developing with 35 more hp and surprisingly the fuel consumption was reduced.

The car was offered with both a manual and an automatic transmission and for an extra $1836.48 buyers could get the 6-speed twin-clutch S-tronic. The automatic transmission cut around 0.4 seconds in the sprint from 0 to 62 mph due to launch control system.

Compared to the older model, the new S3 was lighter by 60 kg, thus it was faster and had an improved handling.

The car was equipped with an adaptive dynamic system that offered five modes: comfort, auto, dynamic, efficiency or individual. Even if it was a sports hatch, the suspension and the throttle response was adjusted depending on the driver’s preferences.

The new 2.0 TFSI engine boasted 300 hp and a torque of 380 Nm. The car reached 62 mph in 5.1 seconds.

While the car looked like a regular family hatchback, it was even faster than a pure sportscar like Nissan 370Z.

The nice exterior design was completed by quad exhausts and 18-inch alloy wheels, while the interior featured sport seats covered in quilted leather and a flat-bottomed steering wheel, branded with the already known S3 logo.
