The essence of RS

Like the overall design, the rear of the RS 3 Sportback is subtle yet leaving no doubt as to the character of the car. The large oval tailpipes are a dead giveaway as to its performance retention, as is the roof mounted spoiler, LED rear lights and robust rear diffuser. Yet practicality is not sacrificed for sport, the rear tailgate opening with a foot gesture for ease of access when your hands are full.

The sound of the RS 3 Sportback

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.
