Runs with the fast crowd

With a turbocharged 292-hp TSFI® engine and standard quattro® all-wheel drive, you can run with the fast crowd — or leave them behind.1

The compact sports sedan that plays in the big leagues

Built with a powerful turbocharged engine, legendary quattro® all-wheel drive and lightweight yet extraordinarily strong body construction, the S3 knows how to go big.

Doesn't just take curves — it throws them, too

If you like taking on curves, the S3 is a willing partner. Our legendary quattro® all-wheel drive comes standard, helping provide better grip in and out of corners. With its torque-vectoring capability, the S3 can throw other cars a curve in the corners as well.2

Lost weight, gained everything else

Using our ultra® lightweight technology, the S3 was constructed with materials that are impressively strong yet weigh less. This helps the S3 accelerate quicker, brake shorter and corner sharper than conventional body designs.* It's how weight lost led to serious gains.
