2017 Audi S3 : powerful value
Audi S models have always stood out in the performance department, but unlike their main competitors, they do not screen to the world just how fast they actually are. For many buyers who want to enjoy their vehicle but not show it off to the world, that’s a strong selling point. Models like the 2017 Audi S3 are refined and elegant despite being deceptively quick and grin-inducing.
