2022 Audi S3 revealed

A new generation of the Audi A3 compact sedan is headed to showrooms in late 2021 as a 2022 model, and Audi on Tuesday took the wraps off the car’s sporty S3 variant. The automaker also revealed the S3 Sportback hatch which we likely won’t see in the United States.

Specifications for the U.S. will be announced closer to the market launch, but elsewhere the S3 will feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 generating 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be mated as standard to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and see the S3 sprint to 62 mph from rest in 4.8 seconds and top out at a governed 155 mph.
