Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
One of the great things about the S3 is that it's just as practical as any other Audi A3. That means there’s more than enough leg and shoulder room for tall adults up front, and even those well over six feet tall are unlikely to find head room wanting. There’s even decent storage for odds and ends.
If you're over six feet tall, you won't exactly be sprawling out in luxury in the rear seats, but you won't feel packed in with your knees tucked up under your chin either. The S3 offers a similar amount of space to the Mercedes-AMG A35, BMW M135i and Volkswagen Golf R. However, if you need to carry adults in the back regularly, the more generous rear leg room of the Honda Civic Type R and Ford Focus ST might come in handy.
