2020 Audi S3 Sportback and S3 saloon revealed - the four-wheel drive Golf GTI

1 month ago   |   By EVO

This is the new Audi S3 , a mid-tier hot hatchback and small saloon that plugs the gap between the new regular A3 and the forthcoming five-cylinder RS3. Like the standard A3 there are no three-door hatchback or cabriolet models this time around, instead it's been designed to offer a very specific combination of premium hatchback with just enough performance to justify the S badge.

New 2020 Audi S3 Sportback blasts in with 306bhp

1 month ago   |   By Auto Express

This is the Audi S3, the first of two hot versions of the German firm's latest hatchback. Now packing 306bhp, it's available as a five-door hatchback and four-door saloon.
The S3 still competes with the likes of the Volkswagen Golf R and Honda Civic Type R , but also goes up against new competition such as the Mercedes-AMG A 35. As ever, a five-cylinder RS 3 superhatch will crown the A3 line-up, but it won't be revealed until 2021.
