Small Sedan, Big Power

The Audi S3 is the A3's sportier cousin. But it's not just silver mirror caps and quad exhaust to tell you that. In fact, visually, there is little difference between the two models. The real difference lies under the hood, and behind the wheel.

What's it like behind the wheel? An A3 driver might say, "Sophisticated. Powerful. Comfortable." An S3 driver doesn't have time to stop and give you a description, because they're too busy tearing down a back road, hugging corners and listening to the turbo spooling.

The guys over at The Fast Lane Car took one out for a review, so don't take our word for it.

The fascinating thing about the Audi S3 isn't just that it's fast. Any car can be fast. It's that it manages to squeeze 292 horsepower out of a "small" four-cylinder engine, goes 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, and zips past 100mph faster than you can say, "oops, I didn't realize how fast this thing would break 100."

So head down to Audi Bedford to review the Audi S3 for yourself, or take out any other car in our sporty and sophisticated new inventory.
