The sport-inspired Audi S3 provides excellent performance and superior luxury. If you're in the market for a speedy sedan for your drives around Wilmington, Newark, and beyond, you'll want to consider the sporty S3. Our team at Audi of Wilmington has put together this 2018 Audi S3 review to give you an in-depth look at what this car has to offer, so you can decide if it's right for you.

Audi S3 Horsepower & Performance

The S3 comes with a 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® 4-cylinder engine that makes 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. This gives the sedan the power to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.6 seconds.

A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard, as well as Audi Quattro® all-wheel drive, for great road grip and control. You'll also get Audi Drive Select, which allows you to choose your driving mode for a customized ride quality that suits your preferences. The magnetic ride allows for automatic adjustments to the firmness of dampers, for options that range from comfortable to aggressive. Choose from four modes: Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, and Individual.

Audi S3 Technology

Stay connected and entertained during your commutes with a variety of technology features. The available MMI® touch system gives you the ability to control your entertainment using touch commands and even intuitive handwriting recognition, so you can easily write in your entry to the navigation system and get going faster.

Stay fully connected by using the standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to access some of your smartphone's best features and apps right on your car's screen. Stay in complete control at all times when you opt for the available Audi virtual cockpit. This feature adds a large, full-color digital display to your instrument cluster, so you can customize the information you see.

Audi S3 Interior

Climb into the cabin, and you'll find seating for five on sumptuous leather upholstery. In the front row, there are 36.5 inches of headroom, 41.2 inches of legroom, and 54.8 inches of shoulder room. In the rear seats, there are 36.1 inches of headroom and a roomy 35.1 inches of legroom. Rear shoulder room is 53 inches. In the trunk of the car, you'll find 10 cubic feet of cargo capacity, so there's plenty of room for your daily essentials.

Stay comfortable with standard dual-zone automatic climate control, as well as a variety of additional options, such as front sport seats with additional bolstering. The front seats are heated to warm you up on chilly mornings, and you'll get a sporty flat-bottom steering wheel with shift paddles.
