Compact luxury SUVs with blistering RS performance – the Audi RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback are on their way.
13 February, 2020
The apex predators in the compact luxury SUV market, these two high-performance vehicles represent the perfect balance of extreme luxury and extreme performance
From standstill to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds flat on the way to an electronically governed top speed of 250km/h. An award-winning 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine pumping out 294kW of power and 480Nm of torque from 1950rpm right through the rev range to 5850rpm. A lightening-fast seven-speed S tronic transmission, quattro all-wheel drive, RS sport suspension with damper control, RS sport exhaust system, progressive steering and wheel-selective torque control.
The new Audi RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback are serious performance machines that also offer accommodation for five adults in absolute luxury – and they are heading this way with an expected arrival date in August.
The apex predators in the compact luxury SUV market, these two high-performance luxury SUVs combine the highest levels of appointment and equipment, as well as distinctive, eye-catching styling and of course, scintillating performance.
The RS Q3 will be priced at $89,900* and the all-new RS Q3 Sportback at $92,900* when they touch down in Australia.
The long list of standard equipment is as impressive as the performance, from the strong visual presence of both models, the new three-dimensional honeycomb grille to the Matrix LED headlights with dynamic indicators. The dynamic exteriors are enhanced with a black exterior styling package, while metallic paint and 21-inch alloy wheels complete the external appearance.
Inside too, the RS treatment is evident in both the superb materials used and the craftsmanship of the finish. From the RS sports seats in fine Nappa leather with honeycomb stitching, 3-zone climate control and the 40:20:40 split rear seat that also slides fore and aft for added versatility.
Technology and equipment are of the highest order, with MMI navigation plus with MMI touch, Audi virtual cockpit plus with a 12.3” screen and RS menu and Bang & Olufsen 3D Sound System (15 speakers, 680 watts). Audi phone box light, Audi smartphone interface (Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay), 4 USB outlets (2x front and 2x rear) and Audi connect plus services which connect the vehicle to the world are all standard features, and it goes without saying that the highest levels of safety and driver assistance systems are all part and parcel of thew RS Q3 models’ makeup.
