The Audi S3 packs sport-inspired design details into a compact silhouette. A Platinum Gray Singleframe® grille with Aluminum-optic double blade bars cuts a sharp figure. S model-specific front and rear fasciae and side sills provide athletic appeal, while S model quad exhaust outlets put the finishing touch on its performance aesthetic.
When you pay attention to detail, it pays off. Such is the case with our beautiful LED daytime running lights. These iconic lights are intended to help make you more visible to other drivers, but they’re designed so beautifully they attract attention for their style alone. It’s something that has us beaming with pride.
You can’t always predict what’s on the road ahead, but you can come prepared with our legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system. By sending power to all four wheels, quattro® increases handling performance in both wet and dry weather situations, giving you peace of mind no matter where life takes you.*
It’s nice to be in the driver’s seat, especially when your power options include a responsive, turbocharged TFSI® engine, a supercharged V6, or the torqued-up performance of a TDI® clean diesel engine. Wield all that power with an 8-speed Tiptronic transmission, and you’ll feel ready to conquer any road.
The S3 enables you to tailor the characteristics of some technical components to fit your driving preference with the standard Audi drive select. Choose from one of four modes: Comfort, Auto, Dynamic and Individual for driving experiences that range from comfortable to aggressive.
To optimize performance and road traction, the S3 features a seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive system adjusts and fine-tunes torque distribution to help maximize grip and overall control, sending as much power to the rear wheels as possible.
You can connect your Audi to your world with Audi connect®, an intuitive system that integrates sought after information like Google Earth™, weather conditions and traffic information. As part of the Technology package, the S3 Sedan offers a complimentary 6-month trial of Audi connect PRIME as well as Audi connect PLUS online services, enabling the Wi-Fi hotspot for passengers, along with a host of other connectivity features. Combined with in-vehicle 4G LTE connectivity, getting connected has never been easier.
The available Bang & Olufsen® Sound System in the Audi S3 fuses state-of-the-art automotive technology with superior audio innovation. 14 fully active loudspeakers and 705 watts of power work together for a premium audio experience.
Standard on Prestige models, Audi active lane assist helps the driver stay in their lane. At speeds above 40 mph, the system helps detect when the vehicle begins to leave the lane without signaling. Then, the system can provide gentle, corrective steering and steering wheel vibrations as an additional warning of lane departure.
