Reborn as the 2016 new Audi S3, Audi’s sporty S3 has undergone a list of refinements, improvements and upgrades to make it even more desirable in 2016. You can order the new S3 from May for delivery towards the end of summer, and with more style, more colour and wheel choices and more technology on board than ever before, there are now even more reasons to take a look at the S3.
The sporty S3 has an upgraded engine, now offering an extra 10PS, bringing its power up to 310PS, and if you opt for the S tronic, you’ll also find another 20Nm of torque – that’s 400Nm in total. The ESC has also been further developed to a specific S3 version.
New technology availability includes the digital Audi Virtual Cockpit, Audi phonebox, and an array of assistance systems, like traffic jam assist and rear cross traffic assist. Now standard on the S3 will be LED rear lights with sweeping dynamic rear indicators, as well as LED headlights, whilst matrix LED headlights will be available as an option.
Externally, the S3 has a subtle new look, whilst there is a choice of new wheel designs available. In addition, there are now 12 external paint finishes to choose from, including five new colours: Tango red, Vegas yellow, Nano grey, Ara blue and Cosmic blue.
