2018 Audi S3 Is Probably The Ideal All-Weather Hot Hatch

If you like hot hatches but don’t want to look like a boy racer, Audi’s latest S3 might just be the car for you.

The latest version of the S3 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 310hp. If you choose the five-door Sportback bodystyle, the only transmission option is the seven-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission.

When equipped with the effortless and quick-changing DSG, and thanks to the Quattro all-wheel drive system, it is capable of a 0-62mph (100kmh) in just 4.6 seconds.

It might not be the sharpest tool to take around the bends, but the S3 has proven to be an excellent daily driver, especially when fitted with the adaptive dampers that give it that extra layer when it comes to ride quality.

Carwow reviews the 2018 Audi S3 to find out if the German hot hatch is still one of the best all-weather sleepers out there.
