Audi's high-performance compact gets an upgrade in styling and performance with the launch of the all-new S3. Powered by a 2.0 TFSI engine, the four-cylinder turbo produces 305 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. As for speed, 0-62 happens in 4.8 seconds while quickly approaching an electronically limited 155 mph. This is paired to a seven-speed S tronic transmission and a quattro all-wheel-drive system. 

Further enhancing the new S3's performance is a four-link rear axle and progressive steering, a lower dynamic suspension, an optional S sport suspension with damper controls, and internally ventilated brake discs with an electric brake booster for enhanced stopping power. Additional features include an increase in width and length, a sportier interior with recycled upholstery, and a 10.1 touch display with the latest Audi MMI infotainment system.
