The 2022 Audi S3 is as suave as it is speedy

This small sedan has elegant proportions and clean lines, yet there's still enough aggression to hint at its ground-pounding performance.

Craig Cole
Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

Aside from some hard plastic here and there, this interior is primo.

Up front, 14.1-inch brake rotors help keep speed in check.

This sedan's styling is clean and elegant with just a hint of aggression.

A 10.1-inch touchscreen is standard, home to a superslick MIB 3 infotainment system.

Tall folks won't be very comfortable in the S3's backseat.

This small touch dial on the center console controls the audio system and works extremely well.

The backseat's a squeeze, but the front buckets are all-day comfortable.
