Audi S3 review: 0-60mph + 1/4-mile tested… and almost crashed on Autobahn!?!

On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
…………………………………………………….

Introducing the all-new Audi S3!

Audi’s new mid-range hot hatch (there’s no new RS3… yet!) arrives with all the styling cues you’d expect, from a deeper more aggressive front bumper through to a bigger roof spoiler and quad tailpipes… oh, and of course it includes Quattro all-wheel-drive!

Under the bonnet, you’ll find a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbo that can produce 310hp & 400Nm of torque. Sure the specs aren’t bad, but when you consider the last S3 produced 300hp, it doesn’t seem to offer much of an upgrade, does it?

So… does this all-new hot hatch offer enough change over its predecessor? And more importantly, is it a strong enough competitor to the likes of the A35 or M135i? You’ll have to stick with Mat for his latest review to find out!

Wish you tested these cars without launch control first, and then with launch. I also assume the 1ft rollout is included in your times?

The S3 has no real design differences compared to a S-line model. Sad

Matt, if you want to have an impression of bad roads, you just have to get out of Bavaria. Sadly it's not as if they wouldn't exist here. 😉
