2014 Audi S3 Saloon UK pricing announced

Article by Anita Panait, on December 11, 2013

There will soon be four all-wheel-drive Audi S quattros sporting 300PS of power -- the new S3 Saloon and the three-door and five-door Sportback and the upcoming S3 Cabriolet. The latest ‘three-box’ version of the latest Audi S quattro Series could now be availed for ordering starting from £33,240 OTR, with the first deliveries to the United Kingdom to take place in March 2014.

The new S3 Saloon is powered by a long-stroke 2.0-litre TFSI engine that shares only its 1,984cc displacement with its predecessor, providing max power of 300PS at 5,500rpm, and max torque between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm. When paired to the S tronic twin-clutch transmission, the engine allows the S3 Saloon to accelerate from zero to 4.9 seconds to 62mph to reach a limited 155mph top speed (5.3 seconds with the manual transmission).

The car has combined fuel economy that stands at 40.9mpg for the automatic, and 40.4mpg for the manual. This four-cylinder engine features new technologies that allow it to boast improved output and economy -- use of both direct and indirect injection; integration of the exhaust manifold into the cylinder head; and use of innovative thermal management for faster warm-up.

It features two balancer shafts that rotate at twice the speed of the crankshaft optimise refinement. However, an electromechanical actuator in the bulkhead only allows the right amount of sound to reach the cabin. Likewise, the exhaust system features a sound flap that opens at certain engine speed ranges to provide greater sound depth.
