Audi S3 saloon review – the saloon body only enhances the appeal - Design

Kinder on the eye, the saloon ultimately delivers the same competent driving experience as the hatch.

  • Fast, beautifully built, huge grip
  • Numb steering

To our eyes the S3 Saloon, barely shorter than an S4, is the most attractive body style. Only a few aesthetic changes give away this cars 300bhp potency, the 19in wheels, quad exhast tips and subtle bodykit will leave owners of other Volkswagen group products studying it closely.

It’s easy to criticise Audi for a lack of variety in its design language but they should be applauded as those sharp uncluttered lines resist the ravages of age.
