Audi S3 Limousine kommer til efteråret

Audi S3 Limousine

Til efteråret udvider Audi modelporteføljen med den nye Audi A3 Limousine. Den dynamiske 4-dørs-model har alle styrkerne fra Audi A3-modelrækken med sig – lav vægt takket være letvægtskonstruktionen, stærke og særdeles effektive motorer og masser af luksusfeatures, hvad angår infotainment- og førerassistentsystemer.

Den nye Audi S3 Sportback

Audi S3

300 hk og 380 Nm, fra 0 til 100 km/t på 5,0 sek. – den nye Audi S3 Sportback byder på de bedste præstationer i klassen. Dens effektivitet er ligeledes forbilledlig: 2.0 TFSI-motoren kører hele 14,5 km/l ved blandet kørsel. Den 4-cylindrede motor i S3 Sportback er nyudviklet helt fra bunden. Den har kun sin slagvolumen på 1.984 cm3 til fælles med forgængeren. Dens ydelse på 300 hk er til rådighed ved 5.500 omdr./min., og i området mellem 1.800-5.500 omdr./min. er det maksimale drejningsmoment på 380 Nm til rådighed. Læs videre

Audi præsenterer ny Audi S3

En ydelse på 300 hk og et drejningsmoment på 380 Nm – tredje generation af Audi S3 løfter standarden endnu et hak opad. Den lette premiumbil i kompaktklassen, som får debut i 2013, kombinerer dynamiske præstationer med en banebrydende effektivitet, og på alle de tekniske områder gør den brug af den imponerende hightech, som Audi kan byde på.

Motoren

2.0 TFSI-motoren i Audi S3 har en stor slaglængde og er nyudviklet helt fra bunden. Den har kun slagvolumenen på 1.984 cm3 (boring x slaglængde 82,5 x 92,8 mm) til fælles med forgængeren, der mellem 2005 og 2009 fem gange i træk blev valgt til “engine of the year”. Mellem 1.800 og 5.500 omdr./min. leverer den 4-cyl. motor et konstant drejningsmoment på 380 Nm på krumtapakslen. Den nominelle ydelse på 300 hk leveres ved 5.500 omdr./min., og det maksimale omdrejningstal udgør 6.800 omdr./min.

S3′s præstationer er imponerende. Sprinten fra 0-100 km/h klares på 5,1 sek. i forbindelse med S tronic, og med manuel gearkasse tager det 5,4 sek. Bilen når den elektronisk begrænsede tophastighed på 250 km/h uden at anstrenge sig. Ved blandet kørsel kører S3 med S tronic 14,5 km/l (med manuel gearkasse: 14,3 km/l) – det svarer til en CO2-emission på 159 (162) g pr. km og en forbedring på 2,5 km/l (med manuel gearkasse) i forhold til forgængermodellen.
