A particular kind of sporty experience: the driving dynamics of the Audi RS 3 Saloon. Thanks to the 5-cylinder engine, S tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive that switches gears at lightning speed. And so you can enjoy the breathtaking performance just the way you like it, the standard Audi drive select allows you to adjust your vehicle’s character. What’s more, you can influence many vehicle components simply at the push of a button: engine characteristics, exhaust flap control, gear change points, the quattro torque distribution and the steering torque of the progressive steering can all be varied.
The RS 3 sedan is also top of its class when it comes to driver assistance systems. They keep the car at the desired distance from the vehicle in front, assist the driver when changing lanes and staying within the given lane, detect traffic signs and help avoid rear-end collisions and pedestrian accidents. The traffic jam assist briefly takes over the steering in slow-moving traffic up to 65 km/h (40.4 mph), the emergency assist, which automatically stops the car if required, and cross traffic assist rear.
The dark-toned interior welcomes the driver and passengers with illuminated door sills bearing the RS 3 logos as a standard feature. Black fine Nappa leather sport seats come with RS logos on the backrests and diamond patterned and colour-perforated covers. Inlays at the instrument panel and at the doors complete the atmosphere of sporty elegance.
With the multifunction steering wheel, you not only have a firm grip on your Audi RS 3, you also control the optional Audi virtual cockpit directly in front of you. With the optional MMI navigation plus with MMI touch, you have another operating instrument whose functions will enrich and simplify your everyday life. The terminal includes a touchpad for scrolling, zooming and writing, making everything easy. On its high-resolution 12.3-inch monitor the driver can choose between three display modes.
The top athlete in the compact segment expresses its sporty character through its progressive design. The Singleframe with its three-dimensional honeycomb grille bears the quattro logo along the bottom. Underneath, a blade extends across the entire width of the front into the side air inlets, where it forms narrow funnels for better air flow through the wheel arches. The LED headlights with their distinctive daytime running light signature are standard; Audi also offers matrix LED headlights as an option.
