Audi S3 MK1

Description

The first generation S3 launched in 1998, only in 3 door body style, as one of the first hot hatches in the premium C-Segment category.

The car rides on the same platform with the Audi A3, VW Golf IV, Audi TT, SEAT León and Škoda Octavia. The engine was a straight-4 20V 1.8 L turbocharged petrol engine that came in two versions of power output: 210 bhp and 225 bhp. Early models of 1999-2002 had 210 hp (154 kw) while later models of 2002-2003 had variable valve timing and produced 225 hp (168kw). The engine provides a maximum 280 Nm of torque, most of which is available from 2200 through to 5500 rpm. This was the first time a small four-cylinder engine was used in an Audi S-series car. Although dubbed Quattro, the S3 uses a different four-wheel drive system. The Haldex coupling adjusts the bias from the front to rear axle as grip changes – most of the time it operates as a front-wheel drive.

The S3 received a minor facelift in 2001, with updated headlights/tailights and an upgraded interior trim.
