Product Overview

Audi S3 (Typ 8P1) is the performance version of the A3 compact hatchback in production from 2006 to 2008, whereupon it received a facelift. It was powered by an inline-4 petrol engine that displaced 2.0 liters.
Compared to the non-S model, especially the 3.2L equipped with the VR6 engine, the S3 may not be all that special. In fact, one could argue that the VR6 model with manual transmission is a more collectible car. Still, the S3 has a slightly higher output and is quite a bit lighter. It also has a host of Audi S styling elements.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Audi S3 (8P1) uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.
