RS Q3 Sportback | Audi New Zealand

Compact SUV Coupé Crossover.
The Audi RS Q3 Sportback.

A deeply rising shoulder line and a flat sloping roof line lead into the characteristic rear of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback. Typical RS-specific elements contribute to the overall athletic design of the compact SUV coupé crossover. Under the hood, the 2.5-litre TFSI engine generates 294 kW (400 hp).

Remarkably different

Performance radiates from every angle of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback. At the front, the RS bumper in conjunction with the gloss black single frame are immediately recognizable. The particularly flat sloping roof line and the deep shoulder line visually lower the centre of gravity of the body. Moving to the side, its muscular 10 mm flared wheel arches are a real eye-catcher. Its optional 21-inch alloy wheels are unusual for this model class. The rear of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback finishes strong, featuring the RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser and horizontal blades plus the RS-specific roof edge spoiler. The low rear window makes the vehicle look particularly wide.

More about individualization

More drive per second

The legendary 2.5-litre TFSI engine with its five cylinders immediately makes our 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.

Uncompromising quality on the inside, too

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. You can also choose to take the sportiness up a notch with the optional RS design packages red or blue, which set additional accents. A highlight prior to every trip is the entry lighting with Audi Sport projection in the doors.

The Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) is designed to provide a standardised measurement and enables the consumer to make reliable comparisons between vehicles in terms of energy (fuel and/or electricity) consumption, emissions, and electric vehicle range. However, it should be noted that the results of this test may not accurately reflect the actual fuel consumption, emissions, or range that a driver might experience in the real world. Actual results may vary depending on various factors such as driving style, road conditions, temperature, weather, vehicle load, and maintenance. Therefore, the WLTP results should be considered as an indicator of the vehicle's performance and not as a guarantee of the actual energy consumption, emissions, or range that a driver will experience in real-world driving conditions, or for making a vehicle-to-vehicle comparison.
