Audi's industry-leading hot saloon gets a special S version that gives it even more oomph alongside its practicality.
From a design point of view, the new Audi S3 Saloon is as well turned out as ever, with chic, slim headlights and a large and strong grille giving way to flowing lines that seek to highlight the extended rear without ever over-accentuating it. As this is an S3 Saloon, there are a host of extra little flourishes such as chrome-plated dual-branch oval twin tailpipes and aluminium window trims and door mirrors. If you choose the Black Edition trim then you can also choose to kit out your S3 Saloon with privacy glass and black exterior highlights on the window trims, rear diffuser insert and grille.
The interior of the new Audi S3 Saloon is as luxurious and well-appointed as you would expect when purchasing a high-end hot executive saloon. Quality seeps out of the entire interior in everything from the choice of tactile and plush materials to the reassuringly chunky feel of the damped buttons and controls. Both trim options see the regular seats removed and upgraded with specialist sport seats that have been decked out in fine Nappa leather and embossed with the 'S' emblem, and a flat-bottomed Sport steering wheel with perforated leather grips comes as standard.
For those after a bit more internal storage, an additional storage pack is available, adding additional nets, compartments and hooks throughout the cabin and boot space.
Whether you purchase the new Audi S3 Saloon in the standard or Black Edition trim you will receive the same engine. The new S3 Saloon always comes with a 2.0-litre turbo fuel stratified injection (TFSI) engine that combines direct petrol injection with turbo charging with spectacular results. The 2.0-litre engine paired with Audi's famous quattro four-wheel drive system delivers the fast, invigorating, yet always reliable driving experience that you expect from a top-of-the-range Audi.
Like its lower-spec A3 equivalent, the new Audi S3 Saloon comes with a five-star crash rating from the experts at Euro NCAP, the maximum crash safety rating available.
This is partly achieved thanks to the S3 Saloon's vast amount of safety features. These include cruise control, rear parking sensors, six airbags (including a knee-level airbag for the driver) and Electronic Stabilisation Control that includes ABS, ASR and ED. The S3 Saloon also comes with theft protection in the shape of anti-theft wheel bolts and an anti-theft alarm.
