Engine

The A3 and S3 are powered by turbocharged four-cylinders and the RS 3 utilizes a much more powerful turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-five. It is capable of generating a staggering 369 lb-ft torque however, it’s a slight improvement of 7 horsepower and 15 lb-ft over the earlier model. The estimated 0-60 mph speed that is 3.8 seconds is quite fast however it’s only 0.1 seconds faster than the older RS 3. The track warriors need to be aware that its top speed varies between 155 mph on the standard version to 180 mph when it’s equipped with the Dynamic option as well as carbon-ceramic brakes. Similar to the predecessor RS 3, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission as well as all-wheel drive is included as standard.

Interior

The RS 3 benefits from the standard A3’s new interior, so expect to have a more technologically-driven interior next time. The 10.1-inch touchscreen controls all of the car’s functions, as well as drivers, will see other information in the 12.3-inch digital instrument panel as well as a head-up display. We expect to see a lot of the features in the A3 carried into in the RS 3, such as the Wi-Fi hotspot, a wireless charger, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility (with wireless versions of both shortly).

The wheel also has an RS button that gives the driver easy access to seven driving modes. It’s also possible to upgrade your cabin with an RS design package that features green or red stitching across the interior, with air vents appliqued to coincide with.

2022 Audi RS3 Release Date & Price

All of this comes at the cost of one that Audi isn’t ready to reveal as of yet. We’re betting that the base price will rise little to reflect the latest equipment, but that it will remain less than $60,000. We believe that the fuel economy will be less affected despite the inclusion of an Efficiency mode that’s new which is why it’s not assessed with the EPA as of yet, previous model’s 19 mpg in the city along with 28 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in combination should be instructive.
