2017 Audi S3 sedan review

The Audi S3 sedan is the smart buyer's performance weapon from the Ingolstadt-based brand and has more than enough performance cred for the buyer in that segment.

2017 Audi S3 review

While the split personality Jekyll and Hyde doesn't apply in this instance, Audi's new S3 range is more than enough car to warrant a Jekyll and Mild analogy...

Audi S3 Sedan Review

The Audi S3 sedan remains a deeply impressive little luxury car with more than useful poke...

Audi S3 : Driving Modes on the Track

More and more new cars these days, particularly those with a performance slant, are being offered with the functionality of different driving modes. But are they just a marketing gimmick or do they actually make a difference? Here with us is a loyal CarAdvice reader, Robin, who also happens to be the owner of a new Audi S3 Sedan that has such a variable mode system...

Audi S3 Sportback Old v New: 2017 Sportback v 2011 Black Edition

Lately here at CarAdvice, we have been thinking of ways to get readers more involved in what we do. Late in 2016, we were the official media partner at the inaugural Motorworld festival at Sydney Motorsport Park, where we brought along 26 performance vehicles and SUVs from various manufacturers that punters and readers could book in to test drive as well as contribute to our mega tests which can be read here and here...

Audi S3 sedan v BMW 228i coupe : Comparison review

It’s not always body style or driveline specification that defines a good twin test — it’s also price. And on that count, the Audi S3 Sedan and BMW 228i Coupe are very similar indeed. The all-wheel-drive Audi is a classy compact sedan with a 206kW punch that retails for $62,200 plus on-road costs and without options...

Sports car comparison : Subaru WRX STI v Audi S3 v Volkswagen Golf R

The new Subaru WRX STI has a lot to live up to, especially now that we know the garden variety WRX is a significantly better car than the old model in every way. The early signs are good, because the STI in Premium guise, as tested here, immediately ramps up the bang-for-your-buck factor. At $54,990 (or $49,990 if you forgo luxury kit), it’s a massive $10,000 cheaper than the model it replaces...

Audi S3, S4, S5 upgrades announced

Audi Australia has introduced a number of specification upgrades across its S3, S4 and S5 performance models, with up to $9000 of extra equipment now included as standard. First is the S3, available in Sportback, Sedan and Cabriolet body styles...

2020 Audi S3 sedan spied

Audi's smallest sedan, the upcoming S3 four-door, has been snapped wearing heavy disguise. The new performance sedan might be well covered, but a few things are clear. For one, the product planners at Audi aren't going to be drawn into making the S3 into a purely style-focused 'four-door coupe' like the Mercedes CLA and BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe...

2020 Audi S3 sedan spied

The next-generation Audi S3 sedan has been snapped for the first time during hot weather testing in Europe, giving us an early look at the design. As will be the case with the A3 and S3 ‘Sportback’ hatch, the all-new A3/S3 sedan will receive an evolutionary styling update rather than a revolutionary one, with clear links to the current model though adopting the lower and wider stance of Audi’s latest range...

2014 Audi S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

2014 Audi S3 Sedan: The Ultimate One Car Garage under $50K When I was shopping for a car to finally replace my rapidly ageing V35 Skyline, I had one goal in mind: finding the ultimate all ‘rounder car for under $50K. I didn't need any off-road capability, so the requirements were: a comfortable, luxury interior, daily drivable practicality (including reliability, but more on that later), plus great power and nimble handling...

2016 Audi S3 2.0 TFSI S Tronic Quattro review

My S3 gets the balance right. Friends told me the S3 is just a Golf R in a pretty dress. Not worth the extra outlay. Maybe, but my daily drive – VW’s Wolfsburg Edition Golf R – just didn’t feel like $61K worth (drive-away). Certainly a great car, but a lot of money for a Golf. I must admit, I’d been tempted by the seductive shape of Audi’s S3 sedan for some time...

2016 Audi S3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI S-Tronic review

The era of the hot hatch is very much upon us these days. A great number of manufacturers are offering very impressive bits of standard kit for around the $50–$60K mark to get your heart racing, palms sweaty, and pupils dilated on your daily commute to work in the mornings, as people hustle to spend their hard-earned cash on something smaller but quicker than the typical family sedan...

2001 Audi S3 1.8 review

At first, the classic 2000s German sports hatch doesn’t seem like much, although once you get up close, the car starts to open up and cover true enthusiast needs. The 2001 Audi S3 is a true driver’s car, with enough technology, space and comfort to surprise Warren East (current Rolls-Royce CEO), perfectly balanced with the performance of its 1...
