Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 9/25/2014 Kelly Pleskot

Buyers seeking a sportier alternative to the A3 will naturally choose the S3, but if it's exclusivity you're looking for, then Audi has just the model you. Audi will offer a 2015 S3 Limited Edition Package, which includes a number of visual and performance upgrades from the standard car. Only 350 models will be built.

In terms of cosmetic changes, the limited edition offers a Daytona Gray pearl exterior paint, a contrasting black and red interior, full LED headlights, and red brake calipers. The Limited Edition model also comes standard with the S3's performance package, which adds 19-inch S3-specific wheels and 235/35 summer tires and Audi magnetic ride, magnetic suspension system constantly adjusts the firmness of the dampers within milliseconds based on current driving conditions.

All 2015 S3 models come with a 2.0-liter TFSI engine with 292 horsepower, up from 220 horses on the Audi A3 2.0. The S3 engine -- which features a new turbocharger, new valves, an upgraded braking system, and other changes over the A3 -- is paired with an S-tronic dual-clutch transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 mph is estimated at 4.7 seconds.

Audi has not yet announced pricing on the 2015 S3 Limited Edition models, but we can assume it will be priced well above the base S3, which starts at $41,995 after destination.
