The Audi S3 is, without a doubt, a trailblazer in many ways. The car can rightfully be regarded as one of the best for anyone who likes class and elegance. Here are qualities that convince anyone why the new Audi S3 is a first-class vehicle in many ways.

  • Audi S3 is rated as one of the top subcompact executive cars
  • The first version of the S3 was made in 1999
  • S3 is regarded as a performance car compared to the similar A3
  • Audi S3 has continued to be improved with a new model coming out every year

What To Expect on the Upgraded Audi S3

Early disclosures of the new Audi S3 are already being circulated on the internet.

Here are the main points that are evident so far:

  • The engine's output will get an upgrade to 370hp.
  • There will be additional 60hp which will be supplied by ABT.
  • Start acceleration rate is expected to reduce where the car will require just 4.5 seconds accelerating from 0 to 62 mph.
  • Rims will range from 19 to 20 inches depending on preferences.

Details received from different sources point towards having a better vehicle that can compete effectively in the modern market. Despite this, it is not clear whether the makers will radically change the features of the vehicle.

Changes Under the Bonnet for Audi S3

All early indicators show that the new car will get a 2-litre engine to produce 370hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. These improvements are expected because users have been asking for a more robust and faster vehicle.

Transmissions upgrades are also expected. The makers of the vehicle want to match the upgraded output with an equally resilient transmission. Current models use seven-speed clutches with a dual performance design. The transmission can be much better, especially for people who enjoy top speed performance.

The new Audi S3 will also get better brakes and suspensions. Fast acceleration requires fast deceleration, and this can only be achieved through improved brakes. Improved speed also needs stronger suspensions to keep the car stable.

What Are the Interior and Exterior Upgrades?


The current versions of this vehicle are already very cosy on the interior. But to keep up with the competition, it is expected that Audi S3 will have a more luxurious interior. The seats will be softer, and the air circulation on the interior will be enhanced. Drivers of this vehicle will enjoy using shift pedals, which make driving an enjoyable experience.

There are rumours that the main change on the exterior is the provision of 19-inch rims. Current models use 20-inch rims and having the freedom to select 19-inch rims makes the car even more elegant.

The sporty LED headlights will remain in place even on the new model. Credible details show that the main objective of producing the Audi S3 is to provide a better performing vehicle. Consequently, the engine is given more emphasis compared to the interior and exterior.
