If peppy performance in a luxurious small car package that offers today's cutting-edge tech are on your new vehicle checklist, you'll want to be sure to test drive the Audi S3.

Despite its affordable price point, you'll find a lavish cabin awaits inside the S3, where up to five passengers in either the hatchback or four-door configuration will enjoy the ride in comfort. That's thanks to spacious legroom, 12-way adjustable heated front seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control. If you opt for the convertible, there is enough room for four travelers. All configurations feature more headroom and legroom in the rear seat than the S3's closest segment competitors, the Acura ILX and Mercedes-Benz CLA. You'll find high-end materials including aluminum inlays and genuine leather upholstery add to the sense of luxury and comfort. You can even increase the opulence with Nappa leather upholstery with diamond stitching. The panoramic sunroof comes standard.

The Audi MMI entertainment interface is standard fare with the S3, and features a 7-inch display interface operated by a control knob or a touchpad that is mounted between the front seats. Included with the system is a 10-speaker audio system, two USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity and satellite, and HD radio. Additional infotainment features are available with the enhanced system if you want to step up the tech. This option adds navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, voice and handwriting recognition, and an available 12.3-inch touchscreen. If you want to upgrade the listening experience in the Audi S3, you can select the 14-speaker Bang & Olfusen audio system.

Despite all of these connected tech features, the Audi S3 doesn't skimp on safety. A rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers and headlights, and Audi Pre-Sense Front and Pre-Sense Basic are among the standard safety features. Adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, front and rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring are also available. 

The Audi S3 doesn't skimp on performance, either. The 292-horsepower, 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission zips from zero-to-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. Drive Mode Select lets drivers customize their driving experience by selecting Comfort, Dynamic, Auto, or Individual driving modes.

If you're ready to step into an Audi S3 to experience the power, luxury, and tech for yourself, our friendly and experienced staff at our conveniently located dealership in Central Ohio are eager to show you the difference German auto engineering has to offer.
