MMI® touch

Available MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate available maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.

Audi connect®

As part of the available Navigation package, you can connect your Audi S3 to your world with Audi connect PRIME, an available intuitive system that integrates sought-after information like Google Earth™, weather conditions and traffic information. The Audi S3 is available with a six-month trial of Audi connect PRIME and Wi-Fi hotspot for compatible passenger devices with Audi connect PLUS online services, which requires an active Audi connect PRIME subscription. Combined with in-vehicle 4G LTE connectivity, getting connected has never been easier.

Bang & Olufsen® Sound System

The available Bang & Olufsen® Sound System in the Audi S3 features 14 strategically-positioned speakers and 705 watts of peak power to create an immersive listening experience.

Audi smartphone interface

This standard feature enables Apple CarPlay® and Google Android Auto™ interface, allowing you access to your compatible smartphone’s features. Services such as navigation, telephone, music and select third-party apps can be incorporated and controlled through the available MMI® touch controller, voice control system or steering wheel controls.

Parking system plus

Available on the S3, parking system plus uses front and rear acoustic sensors and a rear view camera to help detect when you are close to another object.
