Audi S3 (2020): the new sports compact surprised on the Nürburgring – Autonews

A few weeks before its official appearance on the scene, the Audi S3 performs a few laps on the Nürburgring circuit with a light camouflage suit. Two versions were even present during the driving session filmed by the carspotter “Automotive Mike” on Youtube: the S3 compact hatchback and its three-volume variant.

Not yet on the market, the Audi S3 will be available in its two undeniable variants. These sporty models still seem to stand out from the standard versions with more aggressive front and rear shields and four ovoid tailpipes. Rims with an original design will also be offered by the manufacturer for the compact supercharged vehicle. The small sports car will undoubtedly take over the 2.0 turbocharged engine of the previous version, with its 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque distributed over all four wheels via the house all-wheel drive and an S-Tronic automatic transmission.

For maximum control, progressive steering and improved suspension will also be on the menu, in combination with new Bridgestone tires developed specifically for the S3. At the start of March this year, the new compact Audi A3 was unveiled and in April the sedan version with rear trunk followed. Logically, the S3 should follow officially in stride, imminently.
