Audi S3

The Audi S3 is the high performance version of Audis A3, designed as an exhilarating combination of power, acceleration and agility in order to tempt you to part with your money. The S3 benefits from a 2.0 FSI engine with turbocharger and sports suspension. Audis Quattro permanent four-wheel-drive is another major ingredient which makes the S3 so great to handle on the road. The use of premium lightweight aluminium components on the front axle and elsewhere also means weight is well balanced throughout the S3, adding to the exceptional performance. The high level trim, including 18-inch alloy wheels, an imposing S line radiator grille and stylish roof spoiler plus leather multi-function Sports steering wheel with S emblem are further added attractions. If that doesnt do it for you then the acceleration of 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds and a max speed of 155mph just might.

  • Audi S3 Other Main Features

    The S3s other main features include Audis servotronic speed-dependent power steering system which utilises sensors in the steering system register when the steering wheel is turned so power is distributed accordingly. The amount of assist depends on road speed providing even more comfort for the driver than with conventional power steering. The amount of power assist is greatest at low speeds, when parking the car, for example, making manoeuvrability that extra bit easier. At higher speeds the electronic sensing system gradually reduces levels of power assist ensuring driver control is much easier and more precise. Other advanced features include a state of the art navigation system with DVD, offering fast mapping, various search criteria and advanced memory storage. Similarly, the advanced Haldex clutch provides the latest in optimum control and precision manoeuvrability. Drivers Information System (DIS) also helps your driving experience with a display for Auto Check system, two adjustable speed warning thresholds, outside-temperature gauge, on-board computer, gear selected (tiptronic and S tronic models only), doors and boot lid left open function.
