Audi redesigned the A3 and S3 for 2017, giving both models an updated look and feel. TFL’s Roman Mica had the chance to get an in-depth look at the new models and talked to Anthony Garbis, product manager for Audi, about the new features.
The new A3 and S3 follow the A3 and S4 and have a wider grille, lower bumper design, new headlights, updated taillights and other features, giving them a sportier feel.
The S3 comes with a 2-liter, turbocharged, direct-injected engine that’s capable of 292 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The vehicle is also pretty peppy going from zero to 60 in 4.7 seconds. The A3 also has a 2-liter turbo four, but it makes 220 hp with all wheel drive or 186 hp with front-wheel drive.
The A3 and S3 also are available with the well-known Audi Quattro system, which provides power to all four wheels.
Inside, there are some updates, too. The virtual cockpit allows a driver to customize their settings to ensure what they need and want to view is right at their fingertips.
