Audi S3 Sedan: A Practical Pocket Rocket

Gulf Insider drives the new Audi S3 sedan.

Audi’s new S3 is a premium hot hatch that’s both sporty and perfect as a daily driver.

There’s a turbo charged 2.0-litre engine under the bonnet that delivers an impressive 290 HP and 400 Nm of torque. This means it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.9 seconds!

It has a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, and the Quattro four-wheel drive system provides outstanding traction. The S3 rides 15mm lower than the regular A3 on its standard suspension set-up, which makes it feel sportier.

Twin exhausts on each side indicate that this is no normal Audi. There’s also the option of 19-inch alloy wheels.

The S3 looks beautiful on the outside, and the interior is no less impressive with its high quality, stylish, and luxurious fittings. S-specific front sport seats with rhombus pattern offer outstanding lateral support, and it comes with a Bang & Olufsen 3D Premium Sound System. The infotainment is well-displayed thanks to a 10.1-inch central display.

There’s also plenty of space front and back – and I say that as a well-built 6’2’ man (188 cm). The back seats can easily be folded down if you need additional cargo space.

I thoroughly enjoyed driving the S3 around Bahrain for the couple of days I had it.
