It's easy to forget how much fun driving can be until you get behind the wheel of something small and fast. Audi's prescription for curing the driving blues is the S3; a turbocharged, all-wheel drive subcompact with fun in its DNA. The reborn A3 arrived a couple of years ago with a new sedan bodystyle and now encompasses a 2-door cabriolet, a plug-in hybrid hatchback and this sassier S3. My impressions of the A3 2.0T quattro I first drove bordered on apathy. But the performance upgrades made to this car definitely make the S3 an E-ticket ride. Priced from $43,425 this is the priciest A3 variant but the letter S repays your investment in spades.
