Audi S3 Test Report
The new S3 is the most smallest Audi in the current line up but the 292 horsepower make it far from the slowest. This hot little 4-door compact car is well balanced and packing a potent high performance drivetrain. . However, its high price ($42,500) might spoil the overall impression. That is why leasing a such a great idea.

It is absurd, the story of the new Audi S3. This A3 with performance fee, the platform is a mix between the VW GTI and a compact car. The S3 has 292 hp, accelerates from a standstill in just under five seconds to 60 MPH. Such performance had earlier sports cars. In fact up to the 2006 model year, the Porsche 911 had a 300-horsepower base engine. The compact S3 now has an identical performance. However, compared with its current competitors, he has now in terms of performance in the cold. Mercedes builds an AMG version of the CLA-Class with 360 hp, BMW 135i elicits the M 320 hp. The S3 is brand new – and yet already the last performance arms race of the German premium manufacturer in the compact class.
The appearance though has failed quite simply for a sports sedan. The car is lowered by 20 millimeters, a special grille and a rear diffuser framed by a four-flow exhaust system, are the only differences on the exterior compared to the A3.

The interior of Audi has a usual cool-technical design and the S3 benefits from the German style. A sports leather steering wheel and sports seats, also made ​​of leather. Small aluminum emblems are distributed in the interior and the boost pressure of the turbocharger display evokes memories of wild days of the Rally Monster S1. The S3 has tamed nobody. The ride comfort is relatively high. No stick hard suspension maltreated the discs and ruined nerves. The steering is sporty and direct, but not nervous or oversensitive.

The standard four-wheel drive prevents disharmonious power transmission to the front axle and distributes the 300 hp depending on the situation on all four wheels. So the A3 makes on the highway a good figure; runs straight and stable, in conjunction with the pleasant sitting true long haul comfort.

If only the engine would not be. Because of the While if necessary provides a true power of explosion, but can not deny his design. And in S3 a high-revving turbocharged four-cylinder is now time mounted with two liters capacity. That underscored the compact athlete with a loud noise. In the long term that annoys on the highway.

Much more fun preparing since the ride along winding small roads, away from heavy traffic and highway construction sites. Yet for all the precision and driving pleasure that the S3 can convey a lightweight he is not. A really good power to weight ratio this car does not have. With a speedy journey of Audi also reveals weaknesses in the circuit, more specifically in the standard fitted Manual transmission with six gears. In rapid gear changes lack the box at the last precision. For this, the switching paths are a bit too long and the vote too little exact. In addition, you do not like the cold touches stick shift. It is made of milled aluminum.

Since the leather-covered shift stick of dual clutch automatic called S-tronic feels much more pleasant. In addition, the auto switch makes an excellent impression, the switching stages changes perfectly as needed and also offers the opportunity to manually intervene on steering wheel controls the gear change. This is not only comfortable, but also safer, because so hands stay where they should stay: at the wheel.
The standard A3 is at best average equipped. Sports seats, sports steering wheel or the meaningful S-tronic cost all have extra, even the active suspension and especially numerous meaningful assistance systems such as lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition are not standard equipment. Even the fuel thirst of S3 is a not insignificant cost factor. The S3 is supposed to deliver 23 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway but f you buy a 300 HP sports sedan you really do not care about fuel economy.

True sports fans will wait until the RS3 with 380 horsepower will define the terms of performance is feasible in the Golf class if we ever get that car here in the U.S. The S3 however, is not a type for the Extreme. He can be very fast – if necessary but also an unexcited and comfortable everyday companion. The workmanship is impeccable, the materials quality and the prestige high. The Audi S3 and the S3 Sportback are from September to the merchants.
