These days, there's a rather unfortunate trend in luxury vehicles. Many will offer a decent powertrain and some nice interior amenities, but skimp on the safety, urging drivers to instead upgrade to pricier trims.

However, when Greenville, New Bern, and Raleigh drivers choose the 2017 Audi S3, they start with the full package. From there, things can only get better, and our team at Pecheles Audi is going to show you how.

Uncompromising Safety

Comfort and speed are all well and good, but they really aren't worth their salt if your car can't protect you. Fortunately, the 2017 Audi S3 was built entirely with your safety in mind.

While it comes with standard safety features like electronic stability control, traction control, and secondary collision brake assist, the true centerpiece of this suite is Audi pre sense®.

Pre sense® is an intuitive system, which uses cameras and sensors to monitor the road around you, as well as your following distances. To prevent major collisions, this feature can actually hit the brakes for you!

It's thanks to features like these, as well as the tremendous rigidity of the S3, that it earns a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Enhanced Performance

The powertrain of the Audi S3 is truly a marvel. It's a relatively small engine with only four cylinders. Yet due to some powerful turbocharging and the use of turbocharged fuel stratified injection (TFSI®) technology, it can still produce 292 horsepower and 283 lb-ft of torque.

If you're going 0-60 MPH in 4.7 seconds, you might assume that your engine is going to eat up gas, but this simply isn't the case in the S3. You'll still be able to maintain 28 highway MPG and 21 city MPG,in large part due to the 6-speed S tronic® automatic transmission.

Lastly, to balance out the powertrain, you'll also have the quattro® all-wheel drive. This system has been streamlined to allow you tremendously precise and safe handling.

Interior Comforts for All

When you're riding in the Audi S3, there's literally not a bad seat to be had. This car was made for comfort. Drivers in particular will have 36.5 inches of headroom and 41.2 inches of legroom, as well as a heated 12-way power adjustable sport seat with 4-way lumbar adjust.

Of course, leather trim with contrast stitching and S-embossing adorns every seat, so rear-sitting passengers will have just as much comfort. They can easily enjoy dual-zone automatic climate control and the panoramic sunroof, too.

And everyone should be able to stay entertained thanks to the robust 10-speaker audio system and SD card reader. With this feature, you'll be able to take thousands of songs on the go!
