Audi S3 2013: with 300 hp more powerful and more efficient

Audi S3 2013

The latest generation of Audi A3 continues to pay its renewal with the five-door Sportback and now with the sportier variant so far, the Audi S3. If we have learned in recent years is that compact need, or at least I believe the manufacturers, more power, but just as important, if anything, is the fact of achieving unusually low fuel consumption. The Audi S3 will have 300 hp and a consumption of only 6.9 liters per 100 kilometers, or in other words, significantly less than their predecessors.

The launch of the new Audi S3 will occur in early 2013, starting with the three-door body to receive safely later and five-door version called Audi S3 Sportback. In Germany the price is € 38,900, and we assume that its price will not be higher than today. Moreover, its price in Spain probably be benefited by the fact that the S Tronic with its 159 g / km of CO2 will only be taxed at 4.75% and 9.75% for the manual, the car tax. Before all Audi S3 were taxed at 9.75%.

 Audi S3 2013The Audi S3 is now more powerful and efficient 300 hp and 6.9 l/100 km
The Audi S3 2.0 TFSI retains its block, with direct injection and turbocharging. Probably one of the most important drivers for Audi, with a displacement of 1,984 cm3 true. But this version has been designed specifically for the S3, reinforced pistons and connecting rods. In this case develops 380 Nm of torque nearly constant between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm and maximum power of 300 hp at 5,500 rpm. This engine is capable of “stretched” until the 6,800 rpm, which reaches the injection cut.

Its top speed of 250 km / h is regulated electronically, as Audi is just a formality and a “gentleman’s agreement” German builders. The S Tronic only needs 5.1 seconds to practice sprint from 0 to 100 km / h, four points less than its predecessor and five more than the Audi RS3 2012.

Besides manual model life, you can also opt to change S Tronic two multi-disc clutches, one on the outside for gears 1, 3 and 5 and one for smaller inner gears 2, 4, 6 and reverse.

 Audi S3 2013To be or not to be. Audi S3 S Tronic or Manual. A difficult question to resolve
As we advanced at the beginning one of the most interesting facts is that consumption will be approved as only 6.9 litres/100 kilometers (7.0 liters per 100 kilometers for the manual). This figure has been reduced by more than 1 km from the model litro/100 preceding it.

It is also curious that the automatic model with S tronic dual-clutch be benefited by having a lower section in Spanish registration tax. There will be reviews for everyone, but for anyone looking for a change very effective, efficient and fast, the S Tronic option is more attractive than ever.

The new MQB platform makes the Audi S3 is 60 kilograms lighter
The brand new Audi S3 1395 pounds on the scale, about 60 kilograms less than its predecessor. Half of the blame for this weight saving is due to increased use of aluminum in some body panels, especially in the front.

The work goes through a chassis lowered by 25 millimeters suspensions on the Audi A3 and the use of the new compact platform of the Volkswagen Group. After the 18 “wheels and 225/40, reveal some brake discs of 340 millimeters.

The steering is electro, which saves fuel until we activate the wheel, and has a variable steering ratio that varies the turning radius to the point of making it considerably more straightforward as we increase the steering angle.

Aesthetic sports and full LED headlamp for the Audi S3 optional

There are two options, a Mixed Alcantara and Nappa leather and other Velvet and Nappa. There is also an alternative option further sports seats with integrated head restraints and the diamond-shaped seams. Among the technologies that will be able to configure the automatic braking system in town at speeds below 30 km / h.
