The interior of the new S3 models is designed in sporty anthracite tones. Aluminum and carbon are available as decorative inlays. The center armrest, the door armrests and the instrument panel are adorned with contrasting stitching. The door sill trims are illuminated, and the floor mats have colored edging. A black headlining, stainless steel pedals, S embossing in the front seat backrests, and a steering wheel with contrasting stitching and the S emblem accentuate the sporty character.
The newly developed sport seats have integrated head restraints. The side bolsters come with artificial leather upholstery as standard, while the center sections are covered in material that is largely made from recycled polyester: PET bottles are shredded, melted down, chopped, and extruded to create fibers that are then spun into threads. The designers have developed a new rhombus pattern for the optional Alcantara, twin leather and fine Nappa leather covers. The covers are available in black, steel gray, black/red, and black/silver.
An additional option is the ambient lighting package, which can be adjusted to 30 different colors and creates effective light accents. Comfort features also include a pneumatic seat massage function in the lumbar area, seat heating, a panoramic glass sunroof, and three-zone automatic air conditioning. The three-spoke steering wheel is also available as a flat-bottomed variant.
