2020 Audi A3 vs 2020 Audi S3

Serving Pembroke Pines, FL

For drivers in Pembroke Pines who are in the market for a smaller executive car, the 2020 Audi A3 may fit the bill. The A3 has been popular among local drivers since its release in 1999 because of its balance of sophistication and athleticism. The Audi S3 was introduced a few years later. It is similar to the S3 in many ways, but it sits a step above the A3 in the lineup. Our Audi Pembroke Pines team stands ready to assist with your comparison and to support you as you pick out the best new sedan for your specific needs.


The A3 for 2020 is outfitted with a TFSI 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that gives you 184 horsepower. An S Line variation delivers up to 228 horsepower. The A3 is equipped with Quattro all-wheel drive, a rear 4-link suspension system, front MacPherson struts, and additional performance-boosting features. In comparison, the S3 is loaded with a TFSI 4-cylinder, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that boosts you up with 288 horsepower. It also comes with four driving modes, a sport suspension with magnetic fluid inside the shock absorbers and more.


The 2020 Audi A3 has a polished, robust exterior design that includes a Singleframe signature grille. This grille encompasses most of the front end to make a dramatic first impression. The front end rounds throughout the elegant LED headlights and sporty air vents. Available 19-inch tires, a power sunroof, and sharp personality lines throughout the sides complete the inspired design of the A3. When you visit Audi Pembroke Pines to compare these two vehicles next to each other, you may notice that the S3 has a similar grille design with a double-optic feature across the horizontal bars. The LED headlights have a sharper character. The wheels boast exposed painted calipers, and quad exhaust outlets at the rear give the S3 distinctiveness.


You can reasonably expect the S3 to come with more standard features. However, they also share many desired features that you may be looking for in your new car. Both of these cars come with a 12.3-inch color instrumentation panel featuring Navigation Plus technology, MMI Touch, wireless Internet connectivity, an available Bang & Olufsen audio system, a smartphone interface, an auto climate control system and more.
