Review Summary
The new Audi S3 is a very impressive take on the ‘warm hatch’ – a hatchback which isn’t as hard-edged as a dedicated performance model yet still boasts decent performance.

Review Summary
The S3 hides its muscles under a suit that some may find too understated.

Review Summary
The Audi S3 is a discreet hot hatch that uses a potent 296bhp turbo engine, four-wheel drive and a sharp chassis.

What Car
Review Summary
The Audi S3 is one of the most premium-feeling cars in its class, and quick, too. Not the most exciting, however.

Review Summary
It's always nice when I find a car that neatly drops into my top ten, especially when I'm not expecting it to, and that's exactly what's happened with the S3.

Review Summary
There can be no doubt that the S3 is very fast, and is capable of exploiting its performance in almost any conditions thanks to the latest generation of quattro four-wheel drive and advanced torque vectoring technology.

Review Summary
Incredibly competent, deceptively fast, but needs to be at warp speed before it gets interesting.
