Today we're testing the Audi S3 sedan. The S3 is a sportier version of the A3, which is now being released as a sedan. The car's been designed to make driving fun, with a range of new features like the new Magnetic Ride Suspension system.
The S3 has a four-cylinder, direct injection gasoline-powered engine. It produces 221 kilowatts, and weighs about 15 hundred kilograms, which gives it plenty of pick-up. The car uses an average of 7 liters of gas over a hundred kilometers.
The car can go from 0 to 100 in 5-point-3 seconds, with the top speed limited at 250 kilometers per hour.
Adjustable ease of steering and shifting give drivers an individual driving experience.
The Magnetic Ride system alters the suspension in a fraction of a second to meet changes in the road. It gives the car a particularly smooth ride over bumps. But drivers can also change the settings to make it more comfortable or racier.
So what does our tester think of the S3?
The S3 is a really sporty family car. You can take it shopping or on a lap around the Nurburgring. The Audi S3 starts at about 40 thousand euros, with a long list of optional extras.
