Description

The third generation of the Audi S3 launched in 2013 and received a facelift in 2016.

The facelifted model has 7 kW (10 hp) more power and in conjunction with the S tronic, 20 Nm more torque. Moreover, Audi engineers have integrated S3-specific control for the Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) and the multi-plate clutch for improved driving dynamics, driving pleasure and safety. The slightly updated 2.0 TFSI outputs 228 kW (310 hp) and delivers 400 Nm of torque. As a result, the Audi S3 MK3 facelift is quicker than its predecessor while it also features a range of driver assistance systems.

On the exterior, the Audi S3 MK3 facelift is equiped with redesigned headlights with Matrix LED technology, more angular single-frame grille with chrome finish and redesigned bumpers with sportier intakes that distinquish it from its predecessor. At the rear, the differences are limited to the taillight’s graphics and the slightly different rear bumper with the more pronounced diffuser housing the quadriple exhaust pipes. Inside, the car features the 12.3 inch digital cluster (Audi virtual cockpit) and the updated MMI infotainment system with more features.
