Is an Upgraded Audi Car in Your Future?

The Audi S3 and RS3 are aimed at buyers who want an added helping of performance beyond what’s offered by the Audi A3. That’s a good place to start, because the A3 is no slouch, and ranks as one of the more athletic choices available among luxury small cars.

The S3 is the more civilized of the performance variants, and ups the ante with a hefty power boost, all-wheel drive, a sport suspension, quicker steering, and its own interior trim. The RS3 pulls out all the stops, with a raucous 394-horsepower turbocharged five-cylinder engine, tuned magnetic ride adaptive suspension, and Nappa leather interior with sport seats and special trim.

Neither upgrade comes cheap, but the cost of entry is competitive compared to others in the category, and may well be a worthwhile investment depending on your wants, needs, and budget. On the following slides, we’ll take a deeper dive into both to help you make that choice.
