More power, more dynamic performance, more driving pleasure - brought to the road by the new Audi S3 and its performance enhanced 2.0 TFSI engine with 228 kW and standard "quattro" drive. Its expressive appearance signalises concentrated power even when stationary: the exterior is characterised by details such as the side mirrors in aluminium look or the unique single-frame with its S emblem and chrome twin bridges, as well as the side sills which impressively emphasise the shape and lines of the front and rear aprons.
The diverse range of new driver assistance systems sets the bar high. For example, the optional Audi active lane assist, which helps the driver to stay on track above 65 km/h. The front camera recognises markings on the road. As soon as the vehicle approaches a marking without indicating, the system gently intervenes in the electro-mechanical power steering and steers back. The optional Congestion Assistant supports the driver in slow-moving traffic at less than 65 km/h, and maintains sufficient distance from the vehicle in front. The Congestion Assistant also takes over the steering if necessary.
