2017 Audi S3's Diminutive Dimensions Belie its Performance Prowess

Without a doubt one of the more intriguing rides on the roster, the recently refreshed 2017 Audi S3 is effectively a sports coupe in four-door form. In this sea of compact-sedan sameness, the S3's approach is a breath of fresh air.


How else does the S3 manage to distinguish itself from the many others in its segment?


Our friends at MotorWeek deliver the need-to-know details in the clip below. Have a looksee right here:

Beneath the sedan's snout, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine hold court with a six-speed dual-clutch "S tronic" automatic transmission. Coupled with standard quattro® all-wheel drive, the S3 makes a monstrous 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.


And, considering its ample athleticism, the S3's EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 24 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway) is nothing short of spectacular.


If you'd like to learn more about this pint-sized powerhouse, or wish to get behind the wheel of one, we encourage you to drop by our Houston, TX dealership. Our automotive aficionados are ready to answer your every question about the S3, or any other Audi model within the present portfolio.
