2022 Audi S3 Coming Next Year With Over 300 Horsepower

BMW and Mercedes are getting some compact competition.

BMW and Mercedes-Benz each have new products in the sub-compact entry-level space, but Audi is ready to match them with a new model of its own. The all-new 2021 Audi S3 already debuted to a European audience, but more details on a US-specific release are now available. Audi says the updated A3 and S3 models will arrive at US dealerships in mid-late 2021, likely as 2022 model year vehicles.

Powering the S3 is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 305 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This is 17 hp and 15 lb-ft more than the outgoing model, though these gains are based on European-spec output, meaning the US model could differ slightly. With 305 hp, the S3 just edges out its two key rivals, the BMW M235i Gran Coupe and Mercedes-AMG A35.

I like the new interior vs the circular vents but the car looks like a Civic on the exterior. I still can’t get passed the donkey short design. I prefer the Golf-R still.

Looks a bit more aggressive than the outgoing model, and a much better interior. Auto only means no interest from me.

Golf R will get the same drivetrain... despite everyone on the interwebz saying that the Golf R was going to get infinity hp.

I like it - almost a perfect car for me. Probably a little too expensive for me to daily on my local salt covered winter roads. There's always used, but a used luxury brand car seems like something I might not want to deal with. Especially with that Haldex system.

Audi has better reliability than most car manufacturers right now. The Haldex system has been around for a while, and aside from some issues with pumps on very early builds (not a terribly expensive part), it's been very reliable.

I very seriously considered a last gen Golf R so I've been lurking the forums for a while and there are tons and tons of posts talking about Haldex failure within a couple years. It could be the forum amplification effect, but there are much fewer complains about the various Subaru AWD systems and Audi's own full time AWD.

Lots of straight lines with creases inside and out maybe a few too many. For the most part I like it but the wheels are awful.

the 2015's and early 2016's had haldex issues. the pumps and fluid have been revised since then and are reliable. the haldex units themselves were fine, but the pumps would clog or fail and wouldnt build enough pressure to engage the unit. my golf r was dead reliable and a great car.

It is the forum amplification. I had my R for 18 months, and on that time on the forums, the majority of failures I came across were 2016 builds, the ones known to have issues. They revised the unit quickly.

Replacing the fluid and cleaning the filter (that vw doesn't include on the maintenance schedule for some reason) keeps them running tip top.
