Audi S3 Review

What's our take on the Audi S3?

Let’s start off with acceleration. The quoted 0-60mph is 4.7 seconds however, when we tested it, with launch control in the rain, we managed to achieve a 0-60mph time of just 4.6 seconds. That’s even quicker than what Audi quote. That’s thanks to its small 2 litre capacity engine producing 300 horsepower's and 480 NM of torque. Most of the torque is available in the lower rpm range which means the S3 saloon pulls in any gear and the S3 Saloon’s engine has a nice grunt at the higher end of the rpm range meaning it’s 155mph top speed is capable.

Let’s talk about the handling. Simply put, the S3 handles. Even in the rain, because of Audi’s superb Quattro all wheel drive system, when the front end loses grip around the corners, the car sends power to the back to push you out where most front wheel driven cars give up.

The suspension has different settings, and in dynamic mode, the suspension stiffens up to give that extra grip. Having said that, the steering doesn’t give much feedback from the road and there’s not as much feel from it as you would get in a BMW, and putting the car into dynamic road makes the steering a bit heavier, but still doesn’t give the feel.

The steering is precise and driving the S3 Saloon feels very much like a go kart in the way that, whichever way you turn the steering wheel, that’s the way the car will go.
