Audi’s all-new S3 sports a turbocharged, 2.0L TFSI inline-4 engine that produces 265 @ 6000rpm and 258 ft-lb 2500-5000rpm — boosting it from 0-60mph in just 5.7-seconds. The base model is priced at $44,757 in Germany.

the new S3 drives all four wheels by means of quattro permanent four-wheel drive. An electronically controlled multi-plate clutch, positioned at the rear for the benefit of weight balance, distributes the torque as needed – delivering plenty of grip and maximum driving safety
