A 3 Door shape enhances the sportiness of Audi’s S3.
The coupé look is highly attractive to motorists, yet the vehicle has the power and suppleness to back up claims of being a high-performer.
Jardine Motors Audi supplies the S3 3 Door across our network of UK showrooms.

Enthusiastic acceleration and alert handling would count for little if the S3 wasn’t safe to drive. Audi technology makes sure it is.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) ensures steadiness in hazardous situations by intervening with braking and acceleration to maintain control.
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) quickly slow the vehicle from high speeds without locking the wheels.
Passive safety features are included across the interior to shield every occupant from danger. Airbags deploy during a collision and ISOFIX anchor points fix a children’s seat securely in place.
The S3’s uprated styling enhances what’s seen on the A3 rather than reinventing it.
The front end is strikingly similar with Audi’s chrome-framed trapezium grille, Xenon Plus headlights and simple tailgate.
Separating the S3 is an S-design front bumper, restyled air intakes and a unique rear spoiler. Two sets of dual tailpipes are tipped with chrome and highlight the model’s strong engine.
The interior arrangement aims to help you extract more from the S3’s driving dynamic.
Heated sports seats deliver lavish comfort year-round and support you when cornering.
Controls for the car’s infotainment system are mounted to the flat-bottomed leather steering wheel to keep your hands and focus in the right place.
There are also stainless steel pedals at your feet and aluminium accents across the doors and dashboard which uphold Audi elegance.
The very latest Audi technology has been applied under the bonnet of the S3 3 Door to make it as exciting to drive as it is to look at.
The vehicle’s 2.0-litre TFSI quattro engine produces 296bhp with 380Nm of torque and is offered with a choice of gearbox. The S tronic transmission is controlled using paddle shifters behind the wheel and is the alternative to a six-speed manual.
With S tronic handling power delivery, 0-60mph is over in under five seconds.
Your entertainment doesn’t depend solely on the hatchback’s gripping performance. Inside the cockpit is an Audi Music Interface (AMI) which connects personal music players to the audio system.
A DAB digital radio is also on the equipment list alongside the firm’s Bluetooth ® telephone interface.
Information relating to all of this kit is shown through the 5.8-inch QVGA colour display which extends automatically from the dashboard.
