The new Audi RS 3 Sportback and RS 3 Saloon

Extraordinary performance. Everyday usability.

0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds. RS Torque Splitter. And RS driving modes. The new, third generation RS 3 Sportback and second generation RS 3 Saloon bring driving dynamics of the highest calibre. The RS 3 Saloon benefits from an extra 39 litres of boot space in comparison to the RS 3 Sportback, making it the perfect companion for a weekend getaway. Audi Sport through and through, they are as suitable for everyday use as they are thrilling on the racetrack. They are both available in three trims, with the RS 3 Sportback starting from £50,900* and the RS 3 Saloon from £51,900*.

RS Wheels

Even more agility

With its high-performance, five-cylinder engine, the Audi RS 3 delivers rapid acceleration with a highly intoxicating sound. Laying down 500 Nm of torque and the first Audi model with a torque splitter that is standard, you can expect maximum agility and a dynamic response.


Audi Sport in its DNA

A wide body, RS sports exhaust system, and cockpit displays: the RS 3 performance credentials are plain to see. At the front, the wide RS bumper, the distinctive honeycomb grille and the large air intakes enhance the powerful appearance. There are also updated design elements: the new RS 3 comes standard-equipped with flat, wedge-shaped LED headlights and LED tail lights with dynamic turn signal lights.

RS 3 sports seats

Interior racing atmosphere

Inside, the genuine racing feeling continues with a carbon-fibre instrument panel on Carbon and Vorsprung trims and the flat-bottomed leather steering wheel features on the RS 3 and Carbon trims. RS sport seats come as standard and are also available in fine Nappa leather with RS honeycomb stitching and glossy black stitching.

Digital cockpit

Racing ahead with tech

New in the RS 3, the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit plus displays the rpms as a bar graph, showing power and torque as percentages. Optionally, the rpm display is available in the new “RS Runway” design. Here, the values are displayed in a way that resembles an airplane runway – the highest speed in the foreground and the lowest speed in the background.

The new RS3 Sportback and RS3 Saloon will be available to order in mid August.
