U.S.: Audi S3 Sedan to start at $41,000 image

Audi is planning to introduce the S3 Sedan to the United States this year, where the model in question is said to cost approximately 41,000 USD, once it will become available for order.

The announcement hasn’t been made official by the company just yet, but according to a document, which is apparently sourced from Audi of America and posted onto Jalopnik, the new Audi S3 Sedan will set you back for approximately 41,000 USD, once it will go official, over-seas. This basically means that the model in question will be over 11,000 USD more expensive than the entry-level A3 Sedan, which is getting a 1.8L turbo engine with 170 HP and FWD.

The 41,000 USD is apparently available for the Audi S3 Sedan Premium, while for the S3 Sedan Premium Plus trim level, its future customers will have to pay 47,000 USD. In the European version, the model in question is taking its power from a 2.0 liter TFSI engine. The unit is rated at 300 HP (221 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, which is enough to allow it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.3 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The S3 Sedan is rivaling the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG which is priced from 47,450 USD, over-seas.
