RS Q3 Sportback

Make a powerful statement.
The Audi RS Q3 Sportback.

The Audi RS Q3 Sportback in a completely new guise, with a coupe-inspired sloping roof line giving it extraordinary presence and a character all its own. Typical RS specific elements contribute to the overall athletic design of the compact SUV coupé, while under the bonnet, the multi-award winning Audi 2.5 TFSI engine generates 294 kW and both the urge and an impressive soundtrack.

Remarkably different

Performance radiates from every angle of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback. At the front, the RS bumper in conjunction with the gloss black Singleframe are immediately recognisable. The sloping roof line and the deep shoulder line visually lower the centre of gravity of the body. The rear of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback finishes strong, featuring the RS specific bumper with rear diffuser and horizontal blades in gloss black, plus the RS specific roof edge spoiler.

More drive per second

The legendary five cylinder 2.5 TFSI engine is the heart of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback, providing scintillating performance. Combined with the superior traction of quattro permanent all-wheel drive and the standard RS sport suspension, every turn is exhilarating, while the RS specific progressive steering ensures razor sharp handling. Adaptive damper control improves driving dynamics and directional stability, and with the RS brake system with its distinctive red brake calipers, stopping power is perfectly in keeping with the RS Q3 Sportback’s performance potential.

A study in elegance

Mirroring the dynamic styling of the exterior, the beautifully finished interior of the RS Q3 Sportback represents the perfect marriage of form and function. From the standard RS sport leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, to the RS sport seats in fine Nappa leather with RS-specific honeycomb pattern and integrated head restraints the outstanding quality is evident. Standard inlays in aluminium race anthracite – optionally in piano finish black or carbon twill – set the premium tone, while touches like the entry lighting with Audi Sport projection in the doors are testament to the attention to detail. Customers can also choose to further enhance the interior with the optional RS design packages in red or blue, which set additional accents.
