They say that you should become whatever inspires you. It’s a thought that is beautifully demonstrated by the attention to detail given to the design and performance of the Audi S3 Sportback.
The S3’s racing car inspiration is clear to see the moment you lay eyes on it. Every detail of this compact hatchback suggests power, poise and performance.
What’s more, the interior is also carefully considered, which may explain why drivers prefer the S3 as an exciting commuter car over many others on the market.

No matter how familiar you are with a car, it’s still possible to find yourself in an unfamiliar position or situation on a section of road.
This is why Audi familiarise themselves with every aspect of road safety so that you’re looked after regardless of what’s around the next corner.
In any potentially hazardous situation, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) uses targeted braking and intelligent management to control the vehicle, while other clever additions include a tyre pressure indicator, multiple airbags, and ISOFIX anchor points all fitted as standard.
This high level of advanced technology in the S3 Sportback is designed to reduce the chance of any accidents also to lessen the impact to you and your passengers if one does happen.
To say the Audi S3 Sportback stands out in a crowd is an understatement. With its dynamic personality it not only catches the eye, but demands attention.
At first glance, you’ll notice the front bumper, grille and rear diffuser are tailor-made for the S3. The radiator is also finished in a stylish platinum grey with double chrome bars.
And on closer look, you’ll see that the interior is lined with fine Nappa leather sports seats, a flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel and instrument dials that are specifically crafted for this particular model.
Clever thinking underpins the S3 Sportback’s galvanising performance. Below the bonnet, drivers will be pleased to find a 2.0-litre TFSI engine with 296bhp, which combines Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system that effortlessly directs power to each axle for maximum traction.
Get behind the wheel of an S3, and you’ll be equally as impressed with the enhanced technology at your fingertips.
