“It’s a cracking engine that not only produces amazing peak outputs of 294kW/480Nm and has the ability to rocket the high-riding hot hatch from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds, but, thanks to its unusual configuration and firing order, it has an unmistakeable soundtrack that isn’t too dissimilar to the R8 supercar’s warbling V10 … I can’t really think of a natural competitor to the RS Q3 that can match its style both inside and out and with this much performance for the money.”

Audi RS Q3 Sportback Rear

Performance & Capability

Audi’s legendary 2.5-litre TFSI engine with its five cylinders immediately makes intentions a reality. And with the standard RS sport suspension, which is 10 mm lower than on the basic model, every curve becomes a sensation. To precisely set the direction, the Audi RS Q3 Sportback comes with RS-specific, adjusted progressive steering. Damper control improves driving dynamics and directional stability, and also ensures better handling and comfort.

And if we decide on the spur of the moment to stop, the standard RS steel brake system with optional brake calipers in red have plenty of braking power – as do the optional ceramic brakes with brake calipers in gray, red or blue.

Audi RS Q3 Bootspace


Besides breath taking performance, the Audi RS Q3 Sportback offers superb everyday usability along with room for all sorts of possibilities. Just stay flexible – you never know who you’ll encounter on your everyday adventures. But you have room for up to five people. You can move the rear seats fore-aft as standard 150 mm and tilt the angle in seven stages. And should you need to take along some bulkier equipment, the luggage compartment holds 530 litres – or up to as much as 1,400 litres if you fold down the seats.

Audi RS Q3 Interior

Large and adaptable

The interior of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback is as impressive as the exterior, thanks to dynamic styling that penetrates every detail. From the standard RS sport leather steering wheel, flattened at the bottom with multifunction buttons, and the standard inlays in Aluminum Race Anthracite – optionally in Piano Black finish or Carbon – to the standard RS sport seats in fine Nappa leather with RS-specific honeycomb pattern and integrated head restraints. A highlight prior to every trip is the entry lighting with Audi Sport floor projection.

WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO₂ figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile. Figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. The most economical figures refer to the most efficient/lightest set of options. A vehicle’s actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

*Values have been converted to 3P-WLTP from official manufacturer’s NEDC data. Values should be taken as guidance only and are subject to change without notice.
