Elite athlete.

Striking design, razor-sharp handling and scintillating performance, the second generation RS 3 Sedan exceeds expectations on all fronts yet again. The current record holder in its class around the famed Nürburgring, the all-new RS 3 Sedan is at once a high-performance specialist and an elegant, luxury conveyance – the ultimate Jekyll and Hyde.

The essence of RS

Styling for the RS 3 Sedan is more aggressive and athletic than its predecessor, the rear end treatment dominated by a large diffuser stretching across the rear, accentuates the width, with telltale RS oval tailpipes protruding on each side. This is offset by the slimline rear deck spoiler across the boot lid, which can be opened with a simple gesture of the foot for maximum convenience.

Setting the pace of performance

The extraordinary performance of the RS 3 Sedan is a result of its legendary five-cylinder powerplant, an engine revered in motorsport circles and refined over years to its present incarnation. From its distinctive roar to its outstanding driving dynamics, the 2.5-litre TFSI engine never fails to excite in every driving situation.

Imposing Presence

From the statement of its wide Singleframe and RS honeycomb grille, flanked by large side air inlets, to the optional subtle black RS badging that silences any debate, the RS 3 Sedan shows its progressive character from every angle.

Interior excellence

The interior of the RS 3 mirrors the sport-oriented feel and finish of the exterior, perfectly illustrating the highest values for which the RS range are famous. From the highest quality materials and workmanship to the seamless integration of the RS-specific functions within the Audi virtual cockpit, every aspect of the interior is carefully considered and beautifully executed.

Performance at a glance

Even at speed, monitoring important vehicle information is integral to the driver-oriented cockpit. With RS Sport, Performance and Runway display options, performance outputs like power, torque, g meter and lap timer can be appraised with a glance at the high-resolution 12.3-inch colour display.
