There’s more to the stylish and refined Audi S3 Saloon than first meets the eye. With a powerful engine beneath the bonnet and pin-point handling at your fingertips, it’s a car that offers it all – both inside and out.
But, as with all Audis, to experience its full potential you have to get behind the wheel.
Book a test drive at your local Jardine Motors Audi and discover everything you need to know about this stylish S3 Saloon.
The key to safe driving is to keep your eyes on the road. Audi understand this and so the S3 Saloon comes with voice and steering wheel-mounted controls that make it easier and safer to drive.
And, as with any car in the Audi range, it supports you further by taking immediate action should the car face difficult driving conditions.
To help you stay in control, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and its incorporated technology corrects loss of traction, oversteer or understeer, while the rest recommendation system alerts you if it detects driver tiredness, so that you can pull over for a well-deserved recharge.
Looks can be deceiving. But not in the case of the Audi S3 Saloon. Its sharp-looking design and aerodynamic body provides clear evidence of the car’s performance.
What’s more, the front bumper and air intake grilles, dual chrome exhaust pipes and 19-inch alloy wheels with black S3-branded brake callipers highlight the attention to design.
Inside, the cabin and cockpit area takes a simple and intuitive approach, with leather details on the heated front sports seats and the flat-bottomed steering wheel, and jet engine-style air vents to keep you cool.
They say that technology is a soaring exercise of the human imagination. But with the Audi S3 Saloon you no longer have to imagine.
Equipped with a 2.0-litre TFSI quattro engine, all four wheels are driven by the powertrain’s 296bhp, so you can experience the combination of gripping power and inspired technology for yourself.
Further enjoyment is provided by the car’s entertainment system. The MMI radio includes a CD player and SD card reader for you to bring your own music to the party. Music can also be played through your smartphone to the eight-speaker system when you sync your device with the car. There’s also a satellite navigation system that can be voice controlled through the infotainment system.
