New Audi S3 vs old S3: DRAG RACE *Is it any quicker?*

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

It’s time to find out whether the new Audi S3 is an improvement on the old model!

So what does the new S3 bring to the party? Well underneath the bonnet you’ll find a 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine which can deliver 310hp & 400Nm of torque. It’s also AWD (which is a good thing, given the conditions!) and has a seven-speed automatic gear box.

As for the old S3? Well, that’s also got a 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine which can deliver 310hp & 400Nm. What’s more, it’s also AWD and (yep, you guessed it) has a seven-speed automatic gear box!

So you’re probably asking yourself – what have Audi been doing for the past four years?! Well there’s one key difference – the weight! While the new S3 comes in at 1,575kg, the old model only weighs in at 1,445kg! Will that be the deciding difference? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    Nice! I'll be keeping my current (2017) S3 though, can't stand all the vent fakery on the new one.

  • themarmite95

    Could that not just be because engines lose horsepower as they get older? I know 2017 isn't "old" but 2017 vs brand new?

    Think thats just the better aerodynamic that give you over 60mph the last kick

  • Fabien Thuillez

    I think this is a matter of aerodynamics. At middle travel you probably reached more than 100km/h so the drag force start to become consistent. Maybe the new S3 has a better drag coefficient. Moreover Audi could have reduced friction and losses in the inner components, maybe now they use oil with better specs too
