“In the 80s, they turned Audi into a sporty brand, both in motor sports and in production. The new Audi RS 3
Sportback features the latest generation of our 2.5 litre, five-cylinder engine – the most powerful production engine in
the modular transverse matrix.”
The 2.5 TFSI produces 270 kW and 465 Nm of torque in the new RS 3 Sportback. The turbocharged engine accelerates the
compact five-door from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds.
A seven-speed S tronic, which shifts even faster than in the previous model, directs the power of the 2.5 TFSI to the
quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. The quattro system features torque vectoring based on intelligent software and
is designed through-and-through for maximum driving enjoyment. The new Audi RS 3 Sportback steers directly into corners.
On low-friction road surfaces, drivers can even perform controlled drifts, if desired.
The chassis of the five-door model also sets standards. Compared with the Audi A3 Sportback, the body is 25
millimetres lower. The pivot bearings of the front axle, the progressive steering, the RS-specific sport suspension and
optional Audi magnetic ride adaptive damper control are designed specifically for the RS. Audi mounts carbon
fibre-ceramic brake discs behind the 19-inch wheels on the front axle upon request – a first in the premium compact
