This week we’ve got the keys to Audi’s latest small sports sedan. Coated in Sepang Blue paint and equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder motor that’s hooked to a six-speed dual clutch gearbox, the 3300 pound S3 is capable of getting from zero to sixty miles per hour in 4.9 seconds and boasts an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
Naturally, the Audi Quattro all-wheel drive system comes standard on the S3, as does a panoramic sunroof and leather seating. Our tester here is also fitted with the optional 19” Performance Package, which includes five double-spoke Star-design wheels, a set of summer tires, and Audi magnetic ride dampers.
Base MSRP for the 2015 Audi S3 is set at $41,400, while our tester clocks in at $46,645 with the aforementioned Performance Package, the optional Audi MMI Navigation Plus package, and destination charges. Let’s take a closer look at the S3 inside and out, then head out for a drive:
