Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What's New

The Audi S3 is a more athletic version of the Audi A3 luxury compact sedan. It gets with more power, sharper handling, and sportier exterior touches.

The 2020 Audi S3 sees some feature shuffling for the new model year. The base Premium model gets access to more optional active safety features, while the Premium Plus trim gets more standard equipment, including automatic high beams.

Still, the interior design feels dated compared to the sleek layout of its Audi stablemates.

Choosing Your Audi S3

The Audi S3 is available in two trims: Premium and Premium Plus. Pricing starts at $43,995 including destination for the Premium and rises to $46,595 for the Premium Plus.

Engine Choices

The S3 is powered by 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 288 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system is standard.

The setup achieves an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 25 combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Audi S3 is a compact sedan that can seat five passengers and offers 10 cubic feet of cargo volume in the trunk.

Safety Features

The S3 begins with a minimal level of standard active safety features compared to what's available. It gets automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning standard, but the rest of the available features require buyers to tick the box for some packages.

Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors are bundled in the Side and Rear Cross Traffic Assist Package ($600). These features are standard on the Premium Plus alongside automatic high beams.

Only available on the Premium Plus, the Driver Assistance Package ($1,200) adds adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and an automated parking system.

The S3 earns a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.

Connectivity

Audi furnishes the S3 with a 7-inch infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports, HD radio, satellite radio, and Bluetooth. The Premium Plus adds a wireless charging pad to the mix.

Premium - From $43,995

The S3 Premium has deeply shaped front and rear fascias, extended side skirts, a trunk-mounted spoiler, quad exhaust outlets, and 18-inch wheels to carry a subtle and sporty theme. LED headlights and taillights with dynamic turn indicators give the exterior a high-tech look at night, while a standard sunroof is a welcome touch.

Proximity opens the way to leather sport seats with heating and eight-way power adjustment up front, dual-zone automatic climate control, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and interior ambient lighting. Push-button start is also standard

The $1,100 S Sport Package adds adaptive dampers and red brake calipers.

Premium Plus - From $46,595

The S3 Premium Plus package receives more luxury features. A 14-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system and wireless charging are the most notable additions.

Nappa leather seats are offered for $1,450, while the most eye-catching update is the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster that is part of a $2,000 Navigation Package.
