Based on the four-door Audi A3 and the sportier S3, the RS3’s five-cylinder engine is torquier with more power and enhanced chassis tuning. The two RS3 variants will have a 2.5 TFSI five-cylinder turbo engine which produces 401 horses and 500 Nm of torque. 0-100km/h takes only 3.8 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than its predecessor. Both Sportback and Sedan share the same top speed of 250km/h. However, opting for the RS dynamics package plus increases the top speed to 290km/h.

The new Audi RS3 is the first Audi model with a rear torque splitter. This technology makes fully variable torque distribution between the rear wheels possible and allows the car to be more drifty than any other Audi – R8 RWD supercar aside.

Upfront, the RS3 features a wide RS bumper, the redesigned Singleframe with a glossy black honeycomb grille, and the extra-large air intakes. The RS3 comes as standard with matrix LED headlights – they have a unique animation sequence spelling the car’s name – RS 3 – on startup.

The RS3 has a 10.1-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy mobile connectivity. There is also built-in navigation, a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot, and wireless phone charging coming as standard.

The arrival of the RS 3 should heat up the mega hatch/small very-high performance car segment, where the RS 3 will compete against the likes of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 and A 45, and BMW M2.
