Reviews for Audi S3
Excellent All Around Car
Very versatile car. Feels great on the road and love being able to drive it through all weather conditions. Has good power and very reliable. Wish i would have bought it sooner!
- Ride and Handling: Stiff and planted
- Power: Nice smooth power
- Weather Versatility: Drive it in all weather
This car is beautiful inside and out. I got mine with the optional black optic package and I’ve had several people ask if my S3 is the 2021 model. The interior tech in a slight letdown as it was phased out in 2017 and feels a bit dated. The road noise is much higher than my previous Honda but outside of these two minor complaints this is far and away the best vehicle I’ve ever owned.
- Ride and Handling: Car handles so so well and flies off the line. I love the launch control that is built in =]
- Cabin Noise: The only downside I’ve had with this car is it’s extremely noisy in the cabin. There’s a tremendous amount of road noise for a car that is this expensive. I would assume this is due to the thin tires but I was a little disappointed by this
Love my Audi
Comfortable, stylish, sleek, love my interior dual colored leather seats!
- Styling: The interior red and black leather makes it look sporty
- Seat Comfort: Spacious
- Value: Affordable
- Ride and Handling: Very touchy and wish steering wheel went down further
- Braking: Very touchy
- Technology and Entertainment: Not smart accessible
