Description

In 2015, Audi launched the RS3 Sportback MK3, which was the most powerful compact car in the premium segment at the time (the car received a facelift in 2017 with even more power)

The five cylinder, turbocharged 2.5 TFSI engine produced 270 kW (367 hp) and 465 Nm of torque, accelerating the five door model from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, with a top speed of 280 km/h (upon request). A seven-speed S tronic, which shifts even faster than in the previous model, directs the power of the 2.5 TFSI to the quattro permanent all‑wheel drive system. The quattro system features torque vectoring based on intelligent software and is designed through‑and‑through for maximum driving enjoyment, making the RS3 Sportback capable in any weather and on almost any road surface.

On the exterior, the RS3 Sportback MK3 featured redesigned bumpers with very large intakes and a two-tone paint with aluminium-coloured details. At the back, the large wing and the pronounced diffuser housing the double oval exhaust pipes, distinguish it from any other model on the A3 range.
