With many driver assistance systems, the new Audi A3 raises the bar in the premium compact segment. It features including the Audi active lane assist and Audi pre sense front with its predictive system of recognition and avoidance of pedestrians. These innovations make safer driving in the city and in the country.
Inside, as is already the case for the latest models in the range include the famous Virtual Cockpit, which consists of a large screen that replaces the instrumentation. Note, however, that it is not offered as standard on all versions. The tech optional does not stop there: Matrix LED lights, adaptive control, pedestrian detection with automatic braking …
The mechanical changes related to restyling are also minimal. Recovering 310 hp TTS, the new Audi S3 drives the nail pushing torque to 400 Nm between 2000 and 5400 r / min. THE S3 should thus consolidate its status of versatility and performance on a segment played terribly, especially since the arrival of the Ford Focus RS in 4WD.
But the Audi S3 relies on its other strengths, including a revised and expanded technology package of the latest assistance systems to driving, the Audi Virtual Cockpit or the Matrix LED headlights, a first in the segment. The new Audi A3 is available in three-door, Sportback, Sedan and Convertible.
