It’s a formula too good to mess with (unless EVs take over fully), so the new Audi RS3 has pumped up fenders and the wonderful turbo I5.
For Europe the 2.5L turbo I5 has 294kW (394hp) and 500Nm (369 lb-ft). In the US, the RS3 will have slightly more power and less torque, with 299kW (401hp) and 480Nm (354 lb-ft).
Both versions have a AWD and a 7-speed DCT as standard, and a 0-100km/h time of 3.8s.
Standard features include a torque splitter, 19-inch wheels, a wider body with chunky fenders (now with an air vent at the rear), and LED lights.
