The long run 2.0 TFSI in the Audi S3 has been developed from scratch. The only thing it has in common with its predecessor, which was named International Engine of the Year five times in a row between 2005 and 2009, is its displacement of 1,984 cc (bore x stroke 82.5 x 92, 8 mm [3.25 x 3.65 in]). The four-cylinder engine delivers a constant 380 Nm (280.27 pounds-ft) of torque to the crankshaft between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm. Rated power at 5,500 rpm is 221 kW (300 hp), and records the engine at 6,800 rpm.
The Audi S3 delivers impressive performance. The sprint from zero to 100 km / h (62.14 mph) is completed in 5.1 seconds when equipped with the S tronic (5.4 seconds with the manual transmission). The speed of 250 km / h (155.34 mph) is just a formality. The S3 with S tronic consumes on average just 6.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (manual 7.0 liters) [34.09 and 33.60 U.S. mpg]. This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 159 (162) grams per kilometer (255.89 and 260.17 g / km) and for models equipped with the manual transmission, with an improvement of 1.5 liters compared to the previous version.
The new Audi S3 comes standard with a manual six-speed transmission with a lightweight magnesium case. The optional S tronic has a high efficiency and a high gear sixth. Low gears are short in the interest of dynamics, as is the case with the manual gearbox.
The S tronic consists of two subunits, with two multi-plate clutches control the gears. The large K1 clutch located outside directs the torque via a solid shaft to the gears for gears 1, 3 and 5. A hollow shaft rotates around the solid shaft. It is connected to the clutch smaller K2, which is integrated within his elder sister, and which acts on the toothed wheels for gears 2, 4 and 6, as well as reverse.
The Audi S3 will arrive in dealerships in early 2013. The base price in Germany is € 38,900.
