Spry and mighty

A compact body with 292 horsepower makes for a potent combination. The Audi S3 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® four-cylinder engine that produces 280 lb-ft of torque, sprinting from 0-60 mph in only 4.6 seconds and proving sport-inspired performance is at the heart of the S model lineup.

quattro® all-wheel drive

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.
