Audi S3 S tronic first drive review

Audi S3 first drive review

The latest S3 is more powerful and more efficient than its predecessor, but remains slightly aloof when compared to the best hot hatches

A car on which high expectations are placed, as the fourth-generation Audi S3 follows the impressive new A3 introduced late last year. Moreover, with a revised turbocharged 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine developing 35bhp and 22lb ft of torque more than its predecessor as well as a reworked four-wheel drive system with Haldex-style multi-plate clutch, the ingredients are in place to make this new car a truly cracking drive.
