Follow along with Audi City Ottawa as we take a closer look at the 2022 Audi S3 sedan.
Exterior & Interior Design
For too long, sports cars have made driver and passenger comfort a lower priority. The 2022 Audi S3 is rewriting that history with supportive and comfortable seats, which still have a high-performance feel. Additionally, Audi City Ottawa customers can choose fine Nappa leather upholstery and diamond-stitch sport seats.
The Matrix-design LED headlights available with the 2022 S3 are just as about being seen as they are about helping the driver see the road. Both the headlights and daytime running lights offer an animation sequence when prompted by the driver, communicating a change in status to the sedan.
Available Exterior Upgrades

Red brake calipers are a popular option to highlight the sedan’s various wheel designs.

Every 2022 Audi S3 sedan coming to the Audi City Ottawa will employ the same responsive powertrain. A turbocharged 2.0-litre, TFSI® four-cylinder engine will be under the hood of the 2022 S3 and it will be attached to a seven-speed S tronic transmission.

An engaging driving experience is really at the centre of what Audi vehicles deliver to their owners. Drivers can employ a manual mode for the S tronic transmission. With the flip of a switch, the person behind the wheel can work through the sedan’s gears using steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Even with the 2022 Audi S3 making more than 300 horsepower, the sedan is able to record strong fuel economy scores. Owners can expect the 2022 S3 to post 10.23 L/100 km in the city and as low as 7.35 L/100 km on the highway.

It takes a special set of equipment to properly monitor what is happening behind the scenes of the 2022 Audi S3. Buyers can pick a more capable version of the automaker’s virtual cockpit system. Not only will drivers be able to keep an eye on critical systems, but the S3 features special S-model-specific software.
Audi engineers and designers didn’t cut any corners when it comes to equipping the 2022 Audi S3 with its latest technology. The Audi infotainment system offers compatibility for both the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Owners using an iPhone will be able to connect to their software suite, wirelessly.
Optional HUD Technology
The key to safe driving is keeping one’s eyes on the road. An optional heads-up display can be added to the 2022 Audi S3 that will project speed, navigation and systems’ status on the windshield, where the driver can easily see it.
Audi Driver Assistance
Adaptive Cruise Assist
Today’s passenger safety technology is designed to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Adaptive cruise assist with Traffic Jam assist helps drivers maintain a preset distance between themselves and the vehicles in front of them.
Audi Pre Sense
While Audi Pre Sense can’t predict the future, it does scan the area ahead of the 2022 S3 to provide an early warning to drivers for impending danger. If the driver doesn’t react to the warnings quickly enough, the car’s brakes can be automatically applied.
Taking advantage of available parking spaces on crowded city streets is another area where the slim and nimble 2022 S3 excels. That incredible maneuverability is enhanced with the automaker’s Park Assist system that will take over the steering of the car, the driver will control the throttle and brakes.
The 2022 Audi S3 makes a strong case for being one of the most well-equipped vehicles in its class. However, that isn’t to say more can’t be added to the sedan.

The compact luxury sedan segment of the automotive industry is filled with some great models. Buyers interested in the 2022 Audi S3 may come across a few comparable models through the course of their research. When compared to the 2022 S3, the Acura ILX is noticeably dated and may lack some of the performance punch offered. The BMW 2-Series is another worthy foe for the 2022 S3. Audi City Ottawa customers can take the S3 home with comparable performance to most of the 2-Series lineup at a lower starting price. Finally, a brief look at the 2022 S3 versus the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is just as interesting. The latest S3 and base A-Class have the same performance output, but the Audi S3 is more fuel-efficient.
