Great daily diver!
It’s definitely a fun small car! Great as a daily driver. Fits everything you need and does really good on gas. The power is also definitely there when you need it!
Sporty, comfortable and fun to drive!
German quality engineering. Quiet, comfortable while also sporty and nimble to drive. So many compliments on this car throughout town. Economical for a sports car and very reliable. All records maintained with Audi Beaverton
Not the most reliable car but it is the most fun.
I had a few issues with the car’s engine and sensors almost 3 days after I bought it. It is very fun to drive and after the expensive maintenance it will be a blast driving.
Sweet Ride for sure?
Amazing performance and refined interior, exterior simple but overall very nice vehicle but pricy and maintenance high of course as its german and expensive. Was my 1st pick but it was too old and warranty was up. 2018 wrx barely used won me over as 2nd pick.
Enthusiast car for driving everyday.
I am a car guy and I take car purchases very seriously. A car for me is more than just getting from point a to point B. I had my previous car for 11 years and it was going to take a lot to get me out of my 2004 sob 93 Aero with Apr stage 1. I was unimpressed with the styling and performance of the new A3 but when I read my first review of the 2015 S3 everything changed. I had to drive this car it might be the one. It has actually been the most reliable vehicle I?ve ever owned and I enjoy every moment of the experience. The handling is amazingly flat. The power broad. And the upgraded sound system is always a thrill. The transmission is a mixed bag. It is super fast on the shifts but there?s some problem I can?t quite identify? Not enough to lessen my enjoyment. I don?t see anything on the horizon that could pry me out of this car and less it?s a next generation of my wonderful S3. A friend of mine once told me that you know you made a great choice when you walk away from your car and can?t resist turning around to take a look at it. Every time I walk away? I turn around.
My Best Car Ever!
I have owned over 20 brand new vehicles, including 3 Series BMW, A4 Audi, RX7, Maxima, etc... This is by far my favorite car. Super fast, personal sports car with four doors - very versatile. The dual clutch trans is super fast with gear changes, and the power in the Sport Mode is just awesome. Interior styling blows away BMW and the exterior styling gives it a "sleeper" appearance and reads luxury. My best car ever!!!
I have had the car for almost 3 years and still love it. Great performance, styling, tech and very good mileage for the performance level A small sedan in today?s world but the perfect size for me.
Great car to buy CPO
Very fun but usable every day, especially with variable dampers. Great for the money if you buy CPO. purchased for same price as new Golf R with same warranty remaining, very similar performance bus S3 comfort is way better with the interior.
Rally car with style
Wow, wow, and double wow. I didn't realize the true performance of this car until I owned it. It's kinda like not really understanding the shear power of the Death Star until you watch it blow up your home world. Same thing. 0-100 is scary and I'm probably not responsible enough to own this.
I didn?t realize I was buying a race rally car but that?s apparently what this is. Holy lots of fun!!!!
