221 kW (300 hp) and 380 Nm (280.27 of torque, from 0 to 100 km/h mph) in 4.8 seconds – the new S3 offers best-in-class performance. Its is likewise exemplary – on the 2.0 TFSI uses a mere 6.9 of fuel per 100 km (34.09 US mpg). Now in the generation, this powerful e car has once again raised the

The 2.0 TFSI opens a new chapter in the of Audi engines. Redesigned scratch, the 1,984 cc displacement is the thing it has in common with its . The nominal power output of 221 kW hp) is available between 5,500 and rpm. Between 1,800 and rpm the engine delivers 380 Nm (280.27 of torque.

The manner in which the engine responds is just as as the sound it produces. It is sportily and can be experienced particularly intensively the Audi drive select dynamics system is working in the mode. A raft of high-end from dual injection and the valvelift system to innovative management, ensure the four-cylinder combines high output high efficiency.

The sprint 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) just 4.8 seconds when with the optional six-speed S (5.2 seconds with the transmission). Its electronically governed top is 250 km/h (155.34 mph). The 2.0 consumes on average just 6.9 of fuel per 100 km (34.09 US mpg); applies to the S tronic, 7.0 liters per 100 km US mpg) with the manual

Compared to the previous model manual gear shift the S3 1.5 liters less per 100 km (156.81 US That equates to CO2 emissions of 35 per kilometer (56.33 g/mile).

Both the six-gear shift and the optional, ultra-quick S tronic blend dynamism and The lower gears of both are tightly spaced for sporty while the tall sixth reduces fuel consumption. The all-wheel drive uses a plate clutch, which the top model in the A3 series a decisive in terms of traction and agility.

The S3 can accelerate earlier and more when exiting a corner; it is and has good road holding in all

The new Audi S3 responds to steering precisely and spontaneously and takes all of corners at high speed and little body movement; its is almost neutral. In addition to the suspension and the elaborate wheel the new progressive steering system a major role in this The steering rack is meshed in as way that that the more varies independent of the steering

In the event of strong steering this makes the progressive even more direct.

7.5 J x wheels are standard on the new Audi; the of the tires is 225/40. The calipers of the brakes are painted black and an S3 badge.

Audi drive comes standard in the new Audi S3. system handles characteristics of the gas pedal, shift points of the S tronic and the steering ratio for steering. With the press of a the driver decides whether systems should operate in auto or dynamic mode.

The Audi magnetic ride which situationally regulates the absorbers, is also controlled via drive select.

Lightweight also contributes significantly to the dynamic performance of the new Audi S3. The weight of the new S3 is no more than kilograms (3,075.45 lb). The has been reduced by 60 kilograms lb) compared with the previous with the body accounting for a portion of this.

Its body a high percentage of ultra-high-strength the front fenders and the engine are made of aluminum.

The dynamic of the new Audi S3 becomes visible in the of the exterior. The low engine hood, the tornado line beneath the and the strongly sloping C-pillars the body visually. It is 4,254 (167.48 in) long, 1,777 (69.96 in) wide and 1,401 (55.16 in) high.

The new Audi S3 the single-frame radiator grille; its is chrome, the insert is kept in Platinum Gray, while the dual crossbars have a aluminum look. The redesigned has integrated air inlets with double ribs. There are air intakes on the sides.

As an alternative to the standard Xenon headlights Audi supplies LED previously available for high-end only, this technology is now offered in the premium compact The LED headlights give the top model in the an unmistakable look and improve its yet again.

Aluminum-look exterior housings and special sill accentuate the side view of the new S3. The rear bumper has been The Platinum Gray diffuser an aluminum-look double bar houses the system’s four oval which sport chrome

totally in black, the interior up the sporty look of the exterior. The of the instruments are gray, the needles The dial of the rev counter has a charge indicator.

The colored driver system is standard; the power-retractable (0.43 in) on-board monitor with the MMI radio and above) up to display a special S3 screen the ignition is turned.

The optional multifunction sport steering has been redesigned with the rim. In models equipped S tronic, it also has aluminum-look paddles. The pedals and footrest are of brushed aluminum. As an alternative to the sport seats there are S with integrated head and diamond quilting.

The decorative is available in matte brushed or in black.

Above and beyond the fittings there are lots of options available for the new S3. These the infotainment system, with the MMI plus with MMI touch the range. Via a UMTS module its extension Audi connect customized Internet services the brand to the car.

On request equips the new S3 with all the driver systems available for the series.

The new S3 will arrive at dealerships in 2013. The basic price in is 38,900 euros.

Fascinating and astonishing efficiency – the new S3 goes straight tro the top of its class. The from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 takes just 4.8 seconds equipped with the optional S tronic (5.2 seconds the manual transmission); Its electronically top speed is 250 km/h (155.34

The new S3 with S tronic consumes on just 6.9 liters of fuel per 100 km US mpg), a CO2 emission of 159 grams per (255.89 g/mile) (7.0 per 100 km [33.60 US mpg], 162 grams per [260.71 g/mile]). Compared to the model with manual shift the consumption has fallen 1.5 per 100 km (156.81 US mpg). That to CO2 emissions of 35 grams per kilometer g/mile).

The 2.0 TFSI marks milestone in the downsizing strategy of Redesigned from scratch, the thing it has in common with its which was voted International of the Year five times in a is the displacement of 1,984 cc (bore x 82.5 x 92.8 millimeters, x 3.65 in]). The four-cylinder is compactly built and weighs 148 kilograms (326.28 lb), a five kilograms (11.02 lb) than its predecessor.

At 5,500 rpm is nominal output of 221 kW (300 at 6,800 revolutions the rev limiter in. From 1,800 to 5,500 rpm it 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft) of torque.

As a sports engine, the 2.0 TFSI spontaneously to commands from the gas Its sonorous sound becomes intensive when the standard drive select is working in mode. In this case the responds more directly to from the gas pedal; with the S gear change the twin reacts in a flash.

In the event of loads and revolutions per minute the two flaps in the exhaust system producing an even richer Two balance shafts, which in opposite directions from one at twice the revolving crankshaft ensure highly efficient functioning.

Lots of details underscore the character of the new four-cylinder engine. aluminum pistons and high-strength, piston-rods transfer the forces. The cast iron crankcase has reinforced at the main bearing and at the main bearing cover.

The head is made of a new, lightweight aluminum-silicon alloy by high strength and temperature

The large turbocharger, another developed product, is designed for gas temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees With a maximum charge of 1.2 bar it concentrates 1,000 kilograms lb), in other words liters (30,017.47 cu ft) of air per hour. An air-air-charge air cooler considerably the temperature of the compressed air, increasing the mass available on and thus the oxygen content.

The waste gate works quickly and precisely; it reduces the cycle work, as under load it lowers the basic pressure and thus the exhaust gas

Dual injection: Fit for the future

In areas of engineering the 2.0 TFSI pioneering solutions from the efficiency module. One of these is indirect injection, which the FSI direct fuel injection. It consumption and particle emission the four-cylinder already adheres to the which in the second level of the norm will apply 2017.

The FSI injection, which at pressures up to 200 bar, is used starting and at higher greater each of the enlarged injection has six holes.

The four cylinders are filled at all times. The inlet can be infinitely adjusted through a angle of 60 degrees, the outlet by 30 degrees; moreover, on the outlet the Audi valvelift system the valve lift in two stages. are known as drumble valves the incoming air in a specific direction.

The manifold is integrated in the cylinder and has coolant flowing around it a solution, which lowers the of the waste gas and accelerates the warming of the after cold start. the 2.0 TFSI’s innovative thermal system, two rotary slide consolidated in a single module the flow of coolant. They that after ignition the oil quickly reaches operating

This way they always the best relationship between friction and high thermodynamic

An innovative coating for the piston and the anti-friction bearing of the balance keep friction low, the oil operates according to needs. A start-stop-system rounds out the efficient package.

Power transmission

In the new S3 a standard manual six-speed box with a light magnesium performs the power transmission; extremely short distances, gear is easy and accurate. As an Audi offers the S tronic. with the manual gear box the gears have a low ratio, the sixth gear has a consumption-cutting ratio.

The high degree of is another feature that is to both.

The driver of the new S3 can control the gearbox by means of the gear or the optional paddles on the steering Two fully automatic programs are in addition to the manual mode. The D is configured for low fuel consumption and low speeds, while the S mode is for a sporty driving style and a level of engine speed.

The control system manages acceleration from a standing Fuel-saving coasting is another of the six-speed S tronic. It kicks in the efficiency mode is selected in the drive select system and the takes his foot off the gas pedal.

The S tronic consists of two sub-units, are alternately actuated by two multi-plate The large K1 clutch located on the directs the torque via a solid to the gear wheels for gears 1, 3 and 5. A shaft rotates around the shaft. It is connected to the smaller K2 which is located inside its sibling, and which acts on the wheels for gears 2, 4 and 6, as well as

Both transmission structures are active, but only one of them is to the engine at any one time.

For example, when the driver in third gear, the fourth is already engaged in the second section. The shifting process place as the clutch changes K1 opens and K2 closes. It only a few hundredths of a second and happens gently, and without only interruption to the pulling force.

The permanent all-wheel drive is in the new Audi S3. The Audi S3 can accelerate and more safely when a corner. It is dynamic and has good holding in all conditions, demonstrating its in particular in rain and snow.

The new clutch with electronic and hydraulic activation is the centerpiece of the drive. The compact, robust is positioned at the end of the output shaft in of the rear axle differential, despite its relatively low weight it balance the load on the axle. is a package of plates that in an oil bath.

The metal friction are arranged behind one another in – one ring of each is rigidly meshed with the which rotates with the shaft; the other ring is with the output shaft to the axle differential.

During driving, the clutch sends of the engine’s power to the front If traction decreases there, the can transfer torque seamlessly to the axle in just a few milliseconds by the packages of plates together via action.

The new Audi S3 offers features that set new standards in class. It responds to steering precisely and spontaneously, and takes all of corners at high speed and little body movement. Its is accurate, robust and almost the suspension nonetheless ensures a level of comfort.

In comparison its predecessor the front axle has moved forward by 42 millimeters in), the new 2.0 TFSI is assembled a 12-degree slope backwards. The and the hinge bearing for the front are made of aluminum, as are the front and the hood. Together with the engine they save 22 kilograms (48.50 lb) of weight.

gear ratios: Progressive

Progressive steering is one of the innovations the new S3 boasts. Its rack is meshed that the gear ratio independently of steering input, it more direct in the event of steering maneuvers. In any situation engineering gives the driver the characteristics he desires.

The powerful motor providing the servo harmonizes perfectly with the of the steering system, decreasing its as speed increases. The progressive works closely together various systems on board the new S3, as the standard rest recommendation and the Audi active lane and park assist systems.

The suspension is a McPherson construction. It has a width of 1,535 millimeters in). A stabilizer bar is used and rear. The four-link rear has a track width of 1,511 (59.49 in).

Its sword-shaped arms absorb the drive and forces. For the sake of travel their bearings are large in and relatively elastic. On the other the three wishbones per wheel for lateral forces are attached rigidly to the steel subframe for handling.

The links of the rear are made of high-strength steels; the carriers are aluminum. The shock and the compact coil springs are from one another, resulting in response and a large trunk. The suspension lowers the body by 25 (0.98 in) compared with the A3 .

As the new Audi S3 has 7.5 J x 18 wheels. The tires a 225/40 format; despite dynamic qualities their low resistance increases efficiency. The sporting the five parallel design specific to the S, are made the flow-forming technique. The outer rim is out over a cylinder at high and high temperature.

While the is shaping the wheel blank it is strengthening the material, which for thinner wall thicknesses the wheel is lighter, yet stronger. As an Audi mounts 18-inch in three other versions, for the there 17 and 18-inch wheels. A pressure indicator is standard.

The brakes of the new Audi S3 can be calibrated All the discs are internally ventilated and are 340 (13.39 in) in diameter. The brake are painted black and have an S3

They are also available red.

The new electromechanical parking which the driver operates via a is integrated into the rear brake system. The ESC electronic control boasts a new level of and operates extremely sensitively. In the of a crash, the standard secondary brake assist prevents the new S3 continuing moving uncontrolled.

dynamism at the touch of a button: drive select

The Audi select driving dynamics embraces the characteristics of the electronic gas progressive steering support and the points of the optional S tronic.

The determines with the push of a whether these systems in comfort, auto, dynamic, or individual mode. In individual (available with the MMI radio or drivers can compose their own profile within certain In the efficiency mode, systems are for fuel efficiency, including the comfort automatic climate system, cruise control or adaptive cruise control and light.

Another optional integrated into Audi select is the electromagnetic damper system Audi magnetic The damper pistons contain a hydrocarbon oil containing microscopically magnetic particles. When a applies a voltage, the particles perpendicular to the direction of flow of the impeding its flow through the in the pistons.

The system’s control permanently analyzes the condition of the and the driving style and keeps the damping forces in milliseconds. The is able to switch these between three different In the auto mode the new S3 moves and in the comfort mode relatively

In the sport mode, on the other it holds close to the road the steering commands are implemented more spontaneously and rolling minimized.

One of the core areas of of Audi is the field of lightweight Including its quattro drive the new S3 in at a mere 1,395 kilograms lb). Compared with the model the curb weight has by 60 kilograms (132.28 lb); regard to this reversal of the spiral the body accounts for 28 (61.73 lb).
