Performance and innovation, worthy of the Audi Sport badge. Featuring a host of advanced technology and a refined interior, this is a sports car for the everyday. With an engine note as distinctive as its aggressive design, the RS 3 Sedan is engineered to push the limits.
The turbocharged 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine produces a thrilling 294 kW and 480 Nm of torque with instant responsiveness and acceleration throughout the rev range. Coupled to our advanced 7-speed S tronic transmission with its virtually instantaneous gear changes, it launches the RS 3 Sedan from 0-100km/h in just 4.1 seconds. Equally impressive is the RS sport exhaust system, which creates a visceral sound from the dual tailpipes.
Iconic Audi Sport design features, including the gloss-black honeycomb Singleframe grille, tell of the vehicles potential. LED headlights with daytime running lights provide a distinct look, while the black brake callipers with RS logos behind the 19-inch five-blade alloy wheels are an additional signal of its potency. At the rear, the large diffuser not only has a visual impact but also improves aerodynamic performance.
The pulse-raising effect of the RS 3 Sedan begins from the moment you sit in the RS sport front seats, upholstered in fine Nappa leather with diamond-patterned stitching. The flat-bottom sports steering wheel features an Alcantara and leather combination that’s comfortable to grip. Innovative infotainment solutions are provided through an electronically retractable colour display, including MMI navigation plus and the Audi smartphone interface, keeping you connected wherever you go.
Power is not just about acceleration. The internally ventilated, perforated steel discs on the front axle are 370 millimetres in diameter, providing optimal deceleration. Stainless steel pins join the friction ring to the aluminium brake disc chambers to dissipate the heat quickly. The eight-piston brake callipers with the RS logos are painted black to emphasise the sporty character.
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.
quattro all-wheel drive
The quattro all-wheel drive system in the RS 3 Sedan creates astonishing levels of mechanical grip for higher corner speeds and slingshot exits. The RS 3 Sedan is capable of redirecting its huge power and torque in milliseconds to the wheels with the most traction for more dynamic, safer and involving handling.
