Powered to excite.

A force to be reckoned with, the Audi RS 3 Sportback is a true sports car which delivers an exhilarating performance that becomes addictive.

Power from five cylinders

The heart and soul of the RS 3 Sportback is its extraordinary 2.5‐litre TFSI five‐cylinder engine, winner of the coveted International Engine of the Year award for an unprecedented eight consecutive years. Completely redeveloped for even greater power, its 294 kW of power and 480 Nm of torque takes the RS 3 Sportback from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.1 seconds for what is an unforgettable driving experience.


There is no mistaking the obvious potential of the RS 3 Sportback, even to the uninitiated. Compact and purposeful, its taunt and muscular styling create an immediate impression of dynamism in keeping with the Audi Sport reputation for creating exceptional cars. From the distinctive high‐gloss honeycomb grille in black and massive front air intakes, to the tip of the rear roof spoiler, every detail speaks to the car’s performance and motorsport heritage.

    Audi virtual cockpit

    Audi reinvented the traditional dial-based instrument panel with the virtual cockpit, which allows the driver to control what information, navigation data and infotainment functions are displayed in high-definition. A selectable sport mode features a central rev counter and performance-oriented secondary displays such as lap timer, power/torque output or charge pressure. This is supplemented by RS-specific functions: G-Meter, shift light and tyre pressure.

    Putting the RS 3 Sportback’s incredible power to the road through all four wheels, Audi’s revolutionary quattro permanent all‐wheel drive system creates levels of grip that elevate the driving experience to the surreal. The system that changed the face of world rallying, the quattro permanent all‐wheel drive constantly monitors and fine‐tunes traction to maximise grip, its RS‐specific tuning able to send 100 percent of the torque to the rear wheels, for the ultimate in handling, regardless of speed or conditions.


The finest materials and unequalled finish mark the RS 3 Sportback as a true luxury car. Elegant yet supremely functional, there is a feeling of motorsport heritage in the cockpit with the race‐inspired flat‐bottom steering wheel and form‐hugging RS seats with integrated head restraints upholstered in fine Nappa leather, finished in the distinctive RS diamond pattern.
