2015 Audi S3 Sedan 2.0T Prestige quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

Low head room in back seats. 19 inch wheels and 235 35 tires are harsh sometimes. Nav and Internet via cell connection are redundant with a smart phone; screen mirroring would cost less and work as well or better. This car is very quick and handles very well. Brakes are strong and took getting used to because they are sensitive to the first touch. They modulate well after that. Back seats fold down for cargo. After two track days at Atlanta Motorsports Park, faster than a ctsv Cadillac and Chevy ss on this short, curvy track. Expensive but backs it up with refinement and capability. Goes like a Subaru in the snow with all season Continental dws 06 tires. I love it and hope to keep it a long time.

2015 Audi S3 Sedan 2.0T Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

I traded my 2017 Mustang GT for a 2015 S3 with 34,000 miles, about 2 months ago. Let’s get my dislikes out of the way.

1. Wish it had a 7th gear for cruising on the interstate
2. Almost no interior storage
3. Only has 1 grocery hook but my 2012 A4 has 2
4. Back up camera should have been standard or part of the $2,600 nav package

But ignore those complaints because this car is amazing! Even though it’s barely different from the A3 it’s turns a lot of heads. I cut off the resonator and now it’s just enough noise to have fun with but still daily. The handling is superb from factory. Audi quality speaks for itself. I love the understatedness of this car. I honestly can’t say enough good things about it for $28,000. New at $50k it’s debatable, but if you can find a used one with relatively low miles jump on it!

Review

It all starts under the hood. A heavily modified version of the A3's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. With 292 horsepower, an increase of 72 hp over the A3. That power is applied to all four wheels through a standard six-speed automated manual transmission, which, according to Audi, is good enough to fire you off to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds

Review

Absolutely gorgeous car. Fantastic out of the box for every day, but if you want to go fast the transmission isn't up to snuff. My 2009 Ralliart could go through the gears up or down, much faster than an S3??? My ralliart was tuned but even so, for a sub 50k luxury sedan the transmission was really the only disappointment. Downshifting takes a bit too long, enough where I sometimes blip 2 gears because I thought I did not hit the paddle hard enough. But really other than that, this is an amazing everyday vehicle. Don't bother racing or autocrossing unless you get a TCU tune.

This is a fun, practical, fast sporty and good liking vehicle. Always thrilled to drive it. Totally engaging and the best possible sedan for a driver anywhere near this price range.
