Live life in the fast lane.

The 2.5-litre TFSI engine in the Audi RS Q3 is a genuine high-performance powerplant. With a displacement of 2,480 cm3, it produces 228 kW (310 hp) of output and provides an impressive 420 Nm of torque in the 1,500 to 5,200 rpm range. This provides superb power delivery at very low revs on the one hand and enormous sprinting ability up to a maximum speed of 6,800 rpm on the other.


TFSI® in the Audi RS Q3.

Irresistible: from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds. Not a problem for the 2.5-litre TFSI engine with 228 kW (310 hp). Sporty genes. Five cylinders. Vehicle configuration as required. According to driving situation or personal preference. Thanks to Audi drive select. Fitted as standard.

quattro® – permanent power to all four wheels

quattro is a permanent four-wheel drive system. If the wheels on one axle of the vehicle lose grip on the road and threaten to spin, the torque vectoring system transfers the propulsive power via the transfer case and multi-plate clutch to the axle or individual wheel with the better grip. The benefit is better traction and thus improved acceleration as well as more safety thanks to more balanced lateral guide forces.

S tronic® offers a double saving: time and energy

The 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission not only combines two gearboxes in one, but also sportiness and efficiency. The high level of efficiency and the rapid gear changes deliver even greater driving pleasure.
