Facts and figures

Bye-bye boredom

Thanks to the legendary 2.5-litre TFSI engine (Fuel consumption combined¹,²: 9.0–8.8 l/100 km; CO₂ emissions combined¹,²: 205–201 g/km) with five cylinders and the RS sport suspension plus with damper control, every route becomes an adventure and the driving dynamics and stability are enhanced. Audi has also thought about stopping power: with the RS steel brake system with brake callipers in black or optionally in red and the optional RS ceramic brake system with brake callipers in anthracite grey, red or blue.

Writes its own rules

The distinctive design of the new Audi RS Q3² offers impressive and visible performance: The rear of the Audi RS Q3² creates a powerful finish, thanks to the RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser and optional RS sport exhaust system with large oval tailpipes and gloss black trims as well as the RS-specific roof edge spoiler. The RS bumper combines with the gloss black Singleframe to lend the front its dynamic appearance. Its combination of flared wheel arches and the optional 21-inch alloy wheels is unconventional for its model class.
