Trim:

S3

The high-performance S3 is a model in its own right, with a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and acceleration times that wouldn’t disgrace many a supercar. It gets 19in alloy wheels, lowered and stiffened suspension, a revised steering set-up, full-leather upholstery, heated front seats, a bodykit and aluminium-look door mirrors as standard.

Unique to the high-performance, four-wheel-drive S3 Saloon, this 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor has 296bhp – enough to take the S3 from 0-62mph in around 5.0sec. It’s one of the S3 Saloon’s strongest points, with only a little turbo lag and a terrific exhaust note. A manual gearbox is standard, but an automatic is available as an option.
