2006 audi a3 Reviews and News

0608 Pl+2007 Audi S3+front Corner
We like to dream every so often. Which is a good thing, because our dreams of the Audi S3 coming to port here in the U.S. will, most likely, never become reality. We don't, after all, get the 3-door version of the A3 on which the S3 is based. But what those lucky Europeans get is an all-wheel-drive, 265-horsepower hot hatch capable of hitting 62 mph in 5.7 seconds. The S3 uses a much revised, strengthened version of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine found in the Volkswagen GTI, the Audi A3, and myriad other VW/Audi products, with much of the power boost (up from 200 horsepower) coming from a larger turbo and new intercooler. Audi also claims that the S3's peak torque output of 258 lb-ft remains constant from 2500 to 5000 rpm.

Due in the US in May of 2005, the Golf-based A3 may make the compact class a whole lot more fabulous.
