The RS line by Audi presents a top-tier performance-focused option for each vehicle class available through the German auto manufacturer. The Audi RS 3 is the nimblest of the lineup, which has been a key chassis for the brand since its release in 2013. Audi is proud to announce the new 2022 Audi RS 3 sedan and Sportback, featuring a list of performance and visual upgrades.
With its five-cylinder, high-performance engine, the Audi RS 3 is one-of-a-kind in the segment. The 2.5 TFSI has won the “International Engine of the Year” award nine times in a row. In the latest generation of the compact sports car, the engine is now more powerful than ever before. The new RS 3 models sprint from 0 to 60 in just 3.8 seconds. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is what puts the 401-horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque to the pavement – with short shifting times and a sportier gear ratio spread. While performance is the main focus when upgrading the RS 3, Audi made sure to make the interior match what they were trying to accomplish on the track.
The genuine racing feeling is further enhanced by the carbon-fiber instrument panel and RS sport seats with RS embossing and anthracite contrast stitching. The seat upholstery is optionally available in fine Nappa leather with RS honeycomb stitching and glossy black, red, or, for the first time, green contrast stitching. The Audi RS 3 Sportback and RS 3 Sedan4 will be available to order in Europe starting in mid‑July 2021. The new RS 3 models2 will be launched in the fall of this year.
