The technology featured in the S3 Sportback has been designed to reduce the
chance of an accident taking place and lessening the severity if they do.
In hazardous situations Electronic Stability Control (ESC) uses targeted braking and intelligent engine management to maintain vehicle stability.
additions include a tyre pressure loss indicator which warns when you need to
inflate certain wheels. Trusted equipment like multiple airbags, a seatbelt
reminder and ISOFIX anchor points are all fitted at no extra cost.

On any surface the car’s power and 380Nm of torque is transmitted to the road smoothly for the most efficient returns. The Audi’s six-speed manual and S tronic transmission options do just this. Automatic start/stop only heightens the car’s fuel economy and lowers its emissions output.
Complementary technology is located in the cabin to enhance every minute you spend there.
