Power chords

The latest five-cylinder powerplant carries on the tradition of Audi Sport® performance. The 2019 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.

RS 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, 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.

A powerful grip on you and the road

The RS 3 Sedan employs permanent quattro® all-wheel drive with no set torque distribution. The all-wheel drive system adjusts and fine-tunes to help maximize grip and overall control, sending power to the wheels with the most traction.
