Audi is gearing up to unveil the 2025 S3 later this year. It will come in hatchback and sedan body styles, but prior to the official debut, the carmaker has shared images of the new S3 wrapped in brightly-colored Audi Sport livery.
The 2025 Audi S3 comes with an updated 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. It now produces 329 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, which is 23 hp and 15 lb-ft more than the outgoing version.
The engine is mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that is said to be even quicker than before. The S3 borrows the rear torque splitter from the RS3, which should add a bit of spice to the handling.
Speaking of handling, the S3 features revised MacPherson strut suspension with stiffer wishbones and retuned dampers. The carmaker also claims to have tweaked the steering to make the car more sharper than before.
Audi has also upgraded the braking package on the new S3. The car now comes with bigger rotors and 19-inch wheels shod with 235/35 section tires.
