The 2015 Audi S3 is the entry level hot performance Audi sedan for the United States. It has a reworked 2.0L TFSI four cylinder turbo motor with 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque that comes in early @ 1,900 rpm. The power is sent to Quattro all-wheel-drive system via a 6-speed DSG automatic transmission. A manual transmission is not available on this side of the pond.
Still, this is very quick and fun little sedan. The 292 horsepower has to move around 3,450 pounds of curb weight. However, power delivery is effective thanks to all wheel traction and virtually non-existent turbo lag.
The 2015 S3 is rated at 23 MPG city, 31 MPG highway, and 26 MPG combined. It starts at $41,100 and is on its way to the dealership near you.
