Small But Very Powerful Performance

Audi has just introduced a very powerful, performance driven, small compact sport sedan. Called the RS3, it is said to be a standout addition to the Audi lineup. Automotive analysts are crediting the RS3 with "fun, fast acceleration and dynamic performance".  It's designed for someone who wants something to drive that's a little bit different and a lot of fun.  Similar in size to the VW Golf, the RS3 has a front mounted engine, AWD, is 4-door and can carry 4 passengers. It has 7-speed, twin clutch automatic transmission.  According to automotive experts who have driven it, the RS3 is fast, nimble, handles really well and is a good looker with great style and design.  The vehicle is available in Europe and goes on sale in the US this summer.  Pricing starts at $59,995.00

What's New and Different?

Audi called the vehicle "all new".  This 2nd generation version has very sporty styling with a black roof paired with incandescent, bright body colors like green, yellow or blue.  The RS3 has a very large front grill, front air intakes, big wheel arch flares and LED headlights and taillights. It also has fun animations like rally flags that flash as you open or close the doors.  The sides of the car are curvaceously scalloped, giving it lots of pizzaz and style.  The interior is rated one of Audi's best.

Tech Specs

Audi's 2.5-liter, direct-injected turbo 5-cylinder engine has been given software updates and more boost.  It delivers 401 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.  The vehicle is fast and can move from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds.  Concerning suspension, it has Audi's RS Sport Suspension Plus that contains Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC).  DCC provides a smoother ride over a wide range of road conditions. The RS3 is equipped with the VW Golf R's RS Torque Splitter. The Splitter allows the car to shift 100% of the rear wheel torque to either side, allowing the car to smoothly maneuver corners.  The suspension and steering are adjustable for long drives, action packed track driving and spirited fun driving.  The RS3 sounds like a fun car for all types of drivers and travel.  For more news like this, Daily Vehicle Briefing
