The latest five-cylinder powerplant carries on the tradition of Audi Sport® performance. The 2020 Audi RS 3 features a 2.5-liter TFSI® turbocharged engine that’s known for its unique firing order and inimitable sound, producing 394 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. An even more distinct engine note can be struck through the available Sport exhaust system within the available Dynamic package.
Audi Sport® design marks the style
The look and feel of race-inspired performance is showcased throughout the Audi RS 3 Sedan. From the standard S sport seats in Fine Nappa leather, to the widened front fenders and RS-design oval exhaust outlets, to the Singleframe® grille, the dynamic lines put your adrenaline in motion.
Born on the track —
built for the road
The Audi magnetic ride helps to 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.
The lap—and mind—of luxury
The available Audi virtual cockpit is a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument display that allows the driver to customize information such as MMI® Navigation plus and audio, offering Classic and Infotainment modes as well as Google Earth.™ The RS 3 Sedan has a third option: Sport mode, which displays a large, central tachometer and performance statistics, such as a lap timer, horsepower and torque gauge and G-meter.
Available MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate available maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.

EPA estimates. Your mileage and emissions will vary and depend on several factors, including your driving habits and vehicle condition. See www.fueleconomy.gov for details.
Never drive until the tank is completely empty. The irregular supply of fuel that results from that can cause engine misfires. Uncombusted fuel will then enter the exhaust system. This can cause overheating and damage to the catalytic converter.
