When it comes to quality and affordability, the JAC S3 does not disappoint. It is a bit bigger than the S2. It can accommodate 5 persons on its full leather seats with enough convenience.

The S3 has a hexagon grille that goes well with the whole front portion of the vehicle. The headlamps automatically switch on and off depending on the lighting outside. The triangle-shaped fog lights add character to the vehicle and makes it stand out. From the side of the vehicle, there is a smooth line that matches the sporty rims. Inside the S3, the back seat is a foldable 40/60 seat that can accommodate 1,100 liters which is considered to be one of the biggest under its class. For the windows and lock controls, there are chrome switches located on the door panels which are illuminated. The red stitching on the interiors give it a sporty look.

It is covered in chrome which sets it apart from its rivals. One irresistible thing about the S3 is the daytime running lights and the unique rims. This is something to look forward to in an S3.
