For the first time ever, the Audi RS 3 is available in North America. Specifically developed for the US market, the new RS 3 offers a strong entry point into the RS lineup. The RS 3 wears the signature Audi single-frame grille with three-dimensional honeycomb design and quattro script. An aluminum-matte front blade extends across the width of the vehicle and connects to the large front air intakes, and wider front wheel arches provide design cues to the vehicle’s Quattro DNA leaving a breathtaking appeal.
The RS 3 is equipped with the storied Audi five-cylinder engine which produces its unique sound and features RS-specific interior and exterior design details. Producing 400hp, the five-cylinder engine has a total displacement of 2.5 liters, which equals up to 160hp per liter. The maximum torque of 354lb-ft is available at engine speeds as low as 1,700 rpm and remains constant up to 5,850 rpm. As a result, the RS 3 can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a top track speed of 155mph. Impressive? We think so!
The all-new RS 3 not only offers outstanding performance, but also integrates benchmark technologies from the A3 model line including the available Audi virtual cockpit, MMI touch with handwriting-recognition technology and standard Audi smartphone interface, which provides Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto integration for compatible mobile devices. A limited number of 2017 RS 3 models will be produced. We look forward to providing our customers with the latest vehicles Audi has to offer.
