Although the current market of automobile is moving more towards the segment of crossovers and SUVs, records say that the market for sedans can never go down, and the growing number of premium compact sedans are proving this point openly.
The segment of sedans, especially in the luxury sphere is still pretty competitive and that has encouraged the tall automakers keep refreshing their flagship luxury sedan models. For example, if we take a look at the 2022 model year lineup of Audi, we will see that it is all set to release its newly refreshed S3 sedan series for the US market, confirmed the Paso Robles Audi dealer.
What Is Offered for the Year 2022?
From the same source we came to know that Audi isn’t bringing back the Sportback trim variant for the 2022 S3 series unlike its Europe branch and simultaneously has decided to standardize its 2-liter turbocharged engine that can now throw a higher power output of 306 hp.
Sharing a common platform of styling and technology features with its sibling, Audi A3, the 2022 model year version of the S3 had a clear intention of offering its audience a sportier sedan in every sense. So, the aim was not only to design something fancy but even to brush up its performance capabilities. Therefore, in the 2022 Audi S3 sedans the movements are smoothened up with the help of an updated suspension parallel to a lowered stance.
Apart from all this, the 2022 Audi S3 also brought a sportier exterior design that houses a refreshed interior with new sporty kinds of seats that is all set to make you feel more distinct from its other sibling with a more conventional approach. All this encouraged the 2022 Audi S3 to fight against the popularity of other compact performance sedans like the BMW M235i Gran Coupe, Alfa Romeo Giulia, and the Mercedes-Benz AMG A35.
Offered in three different trims, namely, the base Premium, Premium Plus, and the Prestige, the 2022 Audi S3 stacks up more and more layers of comfort as you step higher the price ladder.
The 2022 model year edition of the Audi S3 is expected to come powered by the well-known 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can produce 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque replacing the 288 hp and 280 lb-ft that is found in the current year model. Then there is the all-wheel drive Quattro package which is set as the standard on all trims, engaging a 7-speed automatic transmission to replay the engine power to the wheels. As per the reports released by Audi, the new 2022 S3 is going to sprint a speed of 60 mph from a dead stop in less than 4.8 seconds, proving it is quicker than its existing counterpart.
As mentioned earlier by the Paso Robles Audi dealership, the smooth moves of the 2022 Audi S3 sedans come from the effects of a tighter suspension setup and a firmer chassis, while its noise cancellation system keeps the interior cabin oblivious of the surrounding, ensuring a peaceful ride inside.
