Audi high performance engineering division quattro GmbH takes the five-door Sportback version of the A3 as the foundation for the latest RS model, and in deference to the classic quattros of the Eighties endows it with a turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine that employs 21st Century TFSI turbo charging and direct injection technology
Inside, Fine Nappa leather-upholstered sports seats with silver contrasting stitching, Aluminium look inlays, a flat-bottomed RS steering wheel and RS-specific instruments highlight this car’s status. Its Driver’s Information System is also unique to the RS 3 Sportback, displaying boost pressure and oil temperature and doubling as a lap timer.
First seen in the TT RS, this all-new engine channels 340PS and 450Nm of torque to the road through a standard seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive. A sound flap in the exhaust branch intensifies the sound even further when the driver presses the Sport button, which also varies throttle response.
As befits an RS model the impressive output of this engine is reflected in an exceptional 0-62mph sprint time of just 4.6 seconds and an electronically governed 155mph top speed. Yet less predictably, this rapidity doesn’t rule out the potential for up to 31mpg according to the combined cycle test.
What the magazines said
A real blast to drive. Great performance and sound from five-cylinder chain cam 340PS engine, Immense grip and traction from quattro four-wheel drive. Forgiving ride.
The engine certainly has plenty of character about it and surprisingly sounds even better in the RS3 than it does in the TT RS. Press the Sport button on the dash and this opens a sound flap in the exhaust, intensifying that lovely deep note even further. Like all RS models it has quattro all-wheel drive so there are few worries about traction plus it means the RS3 can put all that power down cleanly without scrabbling for grip or feeling unruly at the front.
