Striking design, razor-sharp handling and scintillating performance, the second generation RS 3 Sedan exceeds expectations on all fronts yet again. The current record holder in its class around the famed Nürburgring, the all-new RS 3 Sedan is at once a high-performance specialist and an elegant, luxury conveyance – the ultimate Jekyll and Hyde.
The extraordinary performance of the RS 3 Sedan is a result of its legendary five-cylinder powerplant, an engine revered in motorsport circles and refined over years to its present incarnation. From its distinctive roar to its outstanding driving dynamics, the 2.5-litre TFSI engine never fails to excite in every driving situation.
The essence of RS
Styling for the RS 3 Sedan is more aggressive and athletic than its predecessor, the rear end treatment dominated by a large diffuser stretching across the rear, accentuates the width, with telltale RS oval tailpipes protruding on each side. This is offset by the slimline rear deck spoiler across the boot lid, which can be opened with a simple gesture of the foot for maximum convenience.
The multi award-winning 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine is revered in performance circles, building an enviable reputation in motorsport arenas around the world. But it is the distinctive howl of its 1-2-4-5-3 firing sequence that has become as famous as its blistering power delivery, heralding its approach and departure to all who know the sound.
The interior of the RS 3 mirrors the sport-oriented feel and finish of the exterior, perfectly illustrating the highest values for which the RS range are famous. From the highest quality materials and workmanship to the seamless integration of the RS-specific functions within the Audi virtual cockpit, every aspect of the interior is carefully considered and beautifully executed.
