The sound of power

The latest five-cylinder powerplant carries on the tradition of Audi Sport® performance. The all-new Audi RS 3 Sedan features a 2.5-liter TFSI® turbocharged engine that’s known for its unique firing order and inimitable sound, producing 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. The distinct engine note can be controlled by opening the flaps of the standard RS exhaust system.

A vision to behold

The look and feel of race-inspired performance is showcased throughout the new Audi RS 3 Sedan. From the S sport seats in Fine Nappa leather to the widened front fenders and RS-design oval exhaust outlets, the dynamic lines put your adrenaline in motion.

Born on the track —
built for the road.

The Audi magnetic ride or available RS fixed sport suspension help maximize handling dynamics. Audi magnetic ride uses a synthetic blend of oils that contain tiny magnetic particles, adjusting the firmness of the dampers within a few milliseconds by creating a magnetic field within the shock absorber.

A powerful grip on you and the road

The RS 3 Sedan employs permanent quattro® all-wheel drive with no set torque distribution. The all-wheel drive system adjusts and fine-tunes to help maximize grip and overall control, sending as much power to the rear wheels as possible.
