Under the S3 Hood
The new 2022 Audi S3 is motivated by a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI engine producing 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque — an increase of 18 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque over the previous model. The S3 is equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch S tronic transmission and standard quattro all-wheel drive, although it does not receive the mild-hybrid system. Audi specs show the A3 will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 second and still achieves impressive full economy ratings of 23 mpg city / 32 mpg highway / 27 mpg combined.
