Audi RSQ3 – The RS range is increased with a 5 cylinder mini SUV
With a mixture of the new A1 and RS6, the RSQ3 has gotten a big change compared to the Q3. Especially Kylami Green, similar to Lamborghini green, and black rims gives the RSQ3 a particularly angry appearance. I all honesty, the Sportback is almost identical with the Lamborghini Urus, and is that not the biggest praise?
Audi released a picture of the car standing on an off road trail, but with those rims and low profile tires, that seems like quite a far stretch. The lowered ride height is also certainly a problem. Therefore, it is off course made to destroy highways, and with the same 5 cylinder engine as in the RS3, that will not be a problem. 400 hp on tap and 480 Nm gives a 0-100 km/h in 4,5 seconds. The power goes through a 7 speed automatic gearbox and 4 wheel drive. The focus is however on the 5 pot engine which gives an orgasmic sound, and with optioned sport exhaust, you get even more of that music.
Speaking of extra options, adaptive dampers, carbon-ceramic brake discs (woah) and 21 inch rims are available to create a very competent machine, even though it is a SUV.
Inside you fins heavily bolstered seats, Alcantara steering wheel and the availability to change driving modes.
The model should be available at dealerships in the end of 2019. No prices in Sweden has been released, but taking into account the German prices, it should start at just under 70 thousand euros.
