So, You Contact A Car Advice About Your New Audi S3 Sedan And You Wanted To Know A Bit More About The Driving Notes Edge Is What.

I Wanted To Do Was Confirm That The Various Driving Modes Have A Tangible Impact On The Track Times Well That Sounds Like A Fair Enough Question To Me Let's Go And Find Out. So, Robin. I'm Curious Tell Me About Some Of The Previous Color Value Well.

I Started Off With A 1966 Volkswagen Beetle Through A Number Of Cars Into My First Turbo Car Which Was A Missing Silvia My Last Car Was With A HSV GTS Okay Now Did That One Half The Magnetorheological Dampers That's Got Years Ago Basically You've Paid About Five Grand For The S Performance Pack On This S3 Which Brings Those Special Adjustable Dampers What Did You Want From Your S3 What. I Wanted Was Yeah, But Not After Buying Two Cars One There's A Sports Car On The Weekend And One Is A Daily Driver To And From Work Okay Well Let's Find Out Whether The Driving Boats And This Make A Big Difference Okay We're In Efficiency Mode Three Two One Go Oh Time To Get A Cup Of Ticket Out Before They Take Off You Know One Always A Master Throttle Response Staring In This Mode Still Relatively Light Good Body Roll My Late Come On Throttle Response Come On Select Okay. So, We're Now Drive Select Again From Efficiency And To Comfort Ok Robin Let's See What This Does Three Two One Go Scintilla Touch Slow Off The Line See We're Here Into First Corner Or Any The Thoughtful Response It's That Bit Better Also No Shortage Of Role, But The Car Still Feels Nicely Balanced.

I'm Going To Say That's A Hell Across The Line Now We Go For Dynamic Mode And Also Tons Of Transmission The Display Goes From D1 To S1 Go They're Better Off The Line Ending Sound A Bit More Purposeful Okay, But Already Filtered Sports Here Literally Lay Into Laptop. I Don't Know Much Better Pick Up Out Of The Corner Yes. I Put It You Can Trade It For The Pill.

So, It's Definitely Raining In The Body Control There's Torture So. I'm Feeling A Little Bit More Confident That's A Nice Pickup - Oh Heavens Join All Right Now We're Just Going To Try One Last Cheeky Run With Everything In Manual Three Two One Go Snow Off The Start Again. So, Really.

I'm Not Convinced Even If. I'm Changing The Gears Myself Here We're Going To Go Quicker, But Use The Paddle Stuff Spring Just That Extra Layer Of Involvement. I Think Yeah It Brings Out The Exhaust To You It Does Throwing Icicles That Exhaust Sound It's Definitely A Highlight Of A Car Very Nice Traction On The Corner Whoo Right Okay Well We'll Start With Efficiency That Was An Average 57 Point Five Three Comfort Mode Fifty Five Point Nine Two.

So, Already No Small Gap There. So, Dynamic. So, This Is The Big Question When It's At The Sportiest Is The Car Quicker.

I'm Really Keen To See Whether It Translated Into The Times On The Track Fifty Five Point One Two. So, Eight Tenths Quicker Yeah We Have Got A Notable Difference In All Three Modes That Was My Sense Of It On The Track. So, Bringing Those Three Dimensions Together Of Of Suspension Steering, But, But Really It Was A Throttle Response That Won The Day.

I Think In Dynamic Mode Those Few Laps At The End We Did With The Paddle Shift Oh It Was My Favorite, But, But That Really Brought Their Fourth Dimension Home Which Was Was The Engine Note As Well For The Wreck All The Time Actually Was Identical To The One With A Dynamic Mode, But You Know You're Actually Having A Bit More Participation Which It's Obviously Important For A Car Like This Yeah Either Way You've Got A Cracker Of A Car Here.
