The RSQ3 Sportback is now available in Audi dealerships in the Middle East.

Coupe-Like Silhouette: Audi RS Q3 for the First Time as Sportback

“We are very excited to welcome the new RSQ3 Sportback to our market. This progressive SUV coupe crossover is a true trendsetter, and we are confident that it will win many hearts with its performance capabilities, striking design and price point”, said Carsten Bender, Managing Director of Audi Middle East.

Athletic: The Exterior

The new Audi RS Q3 Sportback is synonymous with strength and outstanding performance. Virtues that are also reflected in the design where it illustrates its unique character through many details. The gloss black Singleframe with its three-dimensional honeycomb structure makes the high-performance compact coupé car look even sharper. Its position is lower than the Q3 Sportback, and it is inserted directly into the RS-specific bumper with large lateral air inlets. The RS genes are also apparent in the flat slits above the Singleframe radiator grille.

The rear design also appears very powerful. With the low rear window and the roof edge spoiler in gloss black with the RS-specific spoiler lip, the RS Q3 Sportback appears even wider and more dynamic. The low-slung roofline culminates in strong, flat sloping D-pillars. The new generation of the RS Q3 Sportback comes for the first time with a dual-branch RS exhaust system with large oval tailpipes on both sides. This exhaust system sits in an RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser and horizontal blades.

The compact high-performance SUV Coupé is fitted with LED headlights as standard. Audi offers matrix LED headlights with RS-specific darkened bezels as an option.

Outstanding: The Drive

The new RS Q3 Sportback is fitted with the powerful multi-award-winning five-cylinder 2.5 TFSI. It now draws just over 17 per cent more power from 2,480 cc of displacement with 294 kW (400 PS). Its maximum torque of 480 Nm (354.0 lb-ft) is available between 1,950 and 5,850 rpm. The RS Q3 Sportback sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 4.5 seconds. The top speed is regulated at 250 km/h (155.3 mph) or an optional 280 km/h (174.0 mph).

The particular firing sequence of 1-2-4-5-3 and the odd number of cylinders make for an exceptional rhythm and unique engine sound. The dual-branch RS exhaust system emphasizes the five-cylinder engine's characteristic sound, and the optional RS sport exhaust system makes it even sharper. The five-cylinder engine has won the sought-after “International Engine of the Year Award” nine times in a row.

As standard, the five-cylinder engine's power is transmitted via a seven-speed S Tronic to the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The wheel-selective torque control perfects safe and agile handling.

Consistently Sporty: The Suspension

The consistently sporty suspension tuning is a basic requirement for the outstanding driving characteristics of the RS Q
