“The initial Audi RS Q3** determined a possess segment. We aim to continue this success story with a new era of a compress high-performance SUV,” says Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “With a charity of a all-new Audi RS Q3 Sportback**, a on-going SUV coupe crossover, we are a trendsetter and are leveraging to a full a unusual expansion intensity for Audi Sport.”

Athletic: a exterior

The Audi RS Q3** and a Audi RS Q3 Sportback** are synonymous with strength and superb performance. Virtues that are also reflected in a design. The Singleframe with no color-contrasting approximate in a compress SUV creates an even crook impression. The shimmer black griddle with three-dimensional honeycomb structure is inset deeper and directly into a RS fender with a vast side atmosphere inlets. The distinguished boomerang-shaped blades in a fender are designed exclusively for a RS Q3**. The RS genes are also apparent in a prosaic slits above a Singleframe radiator grille.

With a downward slanted coupe-like roof line, a RS Q3 Sportback** is with a tallness of 1,557 millimeters (5.1 ft) 45 millimeters (1.8 in) revoke than a RS Q3**. The rising shoulder line on a Sportback is set over down than on a sister model, obscure a body’s visual core of gravity. As such, a physique appears even some-more robust and a wheels larger. Both Audi Sport high-performance sports cars underscore their opening finish with conspicuous muscles over a circle arches, that have been flared by 10 millimeters (0.4 in).

The back settlement also appears really powerful. With a low back window and a roof corner spoiler with RS-specific spoiler mouth in shimmer black, a RS Q3 Sportback** appears even wider than a sister model. The low-slung roof line culminates in strong, prosaic slanted D-pillars. The RS-specific prolonged roof corner spoiler in a RS Q3** emphasizes a conspicuous brazen bearing of a high-performance SUV and ensures softened downforce. The new era of a RS Q3** comes for a initial time with a dual-branch RS empty complement with vast oval tailpipes on both sides and chrome-colored trims. This empty complement sits in an RS-specific fender with back diffuser and plane blades in shimmer black. The blades are accessible in matt aluminum as an option.

The high-performance SUVs come customary with LED headlights. Matrix LED headlights with energetic indicators and RS-specific darkened trims are accessible as an option. The back lights also underline LED technology.

Outstanding: a drive

Within a Audi Q3 family, a RS Q3 (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km*: 8.9 – 8.8 (26.4 – 26.7 US mpg); total CO2 emissions in g/km*: 203 – 202 (326.7 – 325.1 g/mi) and RS Q3 Sportback (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km*: 8.9 – 8.8 (26.4 – 26.7 US mpg); total CO2 emissions in g/km*: 204 – 202 (328.3 – 325.1 g/mi)) are a sporty flagships. The opening total for a compress engines are compelling: five-cylinder, 294 kW (400 hp) energy output, 480 Nm (354.0 lb-ft) of torque, quattro all-wheel drive. The five-cylinder engine is a complicated classic. Last year, Audi Sport perceived a sought-after “International Engine of a Year Award” for a 2.5 TFSI engine for a ninth uninterrupted time.

The multi-award-winning five-cylinder engine gains a good 17 percent boost in energy during an unvaried banishment of 2,480 cc. The engine’s limit torque is accessible over a really extended rev operation between 1,950 and 5,850 rpm. The RS Q3** and RS Q3 Sportback** scurry from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in usually 4.5 seconds. The tip speed is regulated during 250 km/h (155.3 mph) or an discretionary 280 km/h (174.0 mph).

At reduction than 50 centimeters (19.7 in) in length, a 2.5 TFSI engine is intensely compress and is 26 kg (57.3 lb) lighter than a prior model. Its crankcase is done of aluminum, that alone saves 18 kg (39.7 lb). Elaborate measures revoke inner attrition while during a same time augmenting energy output. The cylinder liners are plasma-coated; a crankshaft categorical orientation are 6 millimeters (0.2 in) smaller in diameter. The crankshaft is vale wearied and is therefore 1 kg (2.2 lb) lighter, while a aluminum pistons have integrated channels for oil cooling. In a brief warm-up proviso after a cold start, a switchable H2O siphon does not disseminate a coolant in a cylinder conduct – a 2.5 TFSI engine so reaches a doing heat some-more quickly. This lowers a fellow of attrition and reduces fuel consumption.

1-2-4-5-3 – banishment alternates between adjacent cylinders and those distant detached from one another. The sold banishment method and a peculiar series of cylinders make for a really special stroke and singular engine sound. The dual-branch RS empty complement underscores a evil sound of a five-cylinder banishment sequence. The optionally accessible RS competition empty complement with black tailpipe trims accentuates a observable sound even more.

The energy from a five-cylinder engine flows around a seven-speed S tronic to a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate that distributes a energy as indispensable between a axles around a multi-plate clutch. The wheel‑selective torque control perfects a protected and flexible handling.

The Audi expostulate select energetic doing complement influences a quattro expostulate and other components such as steering, suspension, S tronic, engine evil and sound. Depending on a comparison apparatus variant, there is a choice of 5 or 6 modes: comfort, auto, dynamic, potency and particular or, as an choice to a particular mode, a dual new RS modes RS1 and RS2. Via a MMI a motorist can adjust and save a dual RS modes individually. Simply dire a new “RS MODE” steering circle symbol provides quick entrance to a dual new modes and allows a motorist to switch between modes.

Consistently sporty: a suspension

The customary RS competition cessation lowers a physique by 10 millimeters (0.4 in) compared with a Audi Q3 and Q3 Sportback. Its consistently sporty tuning satisfies a simple mandate for a superb doing of a dual competition compacts. The RS-tuned progressive steering also conveys tighten hit with a highway even on quick bends.

At a front spindle with a MacPherson settlement featuring revoke wishbones, a lane breadth is 1,590 millimeters (5.22 ft). In a rear, a four-link settlement provides a lane breadth of 1,583 millimeters (5.19 ft). For a initial time on a compress high-performance SUV, Audi Sport offers 21-inch wheels in several edge designs. Behind a customary 20-inch or discretionary 21-inch wheels, a all-new six-piston RS steel stop complement works with ventilated and seperated disks measuring 375 millimeters (14.8 in) (front) and 310 millimeters (12.2 in) (rear, not perforated). Their stop calipers are embellished black as customary and are accessible in red as an option. The stop calipers of a optional, all-new RS ceramic brakes are accessible optionally in gray, red or blue. In front, a braking energy is generated by newly grown monoblock aluminum calipers and ceramic stop disks that are 380 millimeters (15.0 in) in diameter. At a rear, floating calipers and steel disks measuring 310 mm (12.2 in) in hole safeguard a required deceleration.

As an choice a new RS Q3** and RS Q3 Sportback** are accessible with a RS competition cessation and with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC). Here an electrically actuated proportional valve regulates a upsurge of oil into a check pistons. The Audi expostulate name energetic doing complement also influences a discretionary RS competition cessation and with check control, in that sensors magnitude movements of a car body. The RS-tuned dampers are afterwards practiced accordingly to a highway aspect conditions and pushing situation. The cessation provides a best damping force for any check within milliseconds – low for tough bumps; high to prop a physique during quick cornering or when braking. The upshot is extended pushing dynamics, accurate fortitude and flexible doing joined with even incomparable comfort.

Driver-oriented: a interior

The jaunty settlement of a extraneous is echoed in a car’s interior. The importance on a plane lines conveys a inexhaustible clarity of space. The air-conditioning control unit, a core console and a MMI touch arrangement are slanted toward a motorist by 10 degrees – a whole cockpit is really most designed with a motorist in mind. The engine can be started regulating a discretionary start-stop symbol with a red ring.

The settlement of a instrument row with a Audi practical cockpit in a RS settlement harmonizes ideally with a doing concept. The MMI hold arrangement with a high-gloss black glass-look approximate slots in seamlessly as another executive element. As an option, a motorist can name a incomparable Audi practical cockpit and with change light arrangement that prompts a motorist to upshift when a limit engine speed is reached. Special RS displays in a Audi practical cockpit and also yield information on tire pressure, torque, energy output, path times, g-forces and acceleration measurements.

Sport seats in black leather/Alcantara with RS embossing demonstrate a jaunty impression of a RS Q3** and RS Q3 Sportback**. The RS competition seats in excellent Nappa leather with RS-specific honeycomb settlement and integrated conduct restraints are accessible for a initial time in a Q3 family. Their resisting stitching comes customary in shimmer black, and optionally in red or blue. When selecting one of a dual RS settlement packages in red or blue, highlights on a steering circle rim, belt straps, building mats and rigging push are colored while a steering circle and selector push come in Alcantara. With a extended RS settlement packages, a panels and doorway armrests are embellished in red or blue Alcantara. Inlays in Aluminum Race, anthracite, optionally in piano finish, black, or carbon, turn out a sporty interior. For a initial time, a interior can also be finished wholly in black.

Entry lighting with Audi Sport projection in a doors welcomes a motorist and front passenger. RS logos accoutre a interior on a steering circle and a bright front doorway sill trims. The RS competition leather steering wheel, flattened during a bottom, including newly designed change paddles comes with multifunction buttons that concede a motorist to control a dual discretionary RS modes in a Audi expostulate name energetic doing system. The RS-specific displays open automatically in a Audi practical cockpit plus.

Generous: space judgment and equipment

The new RS Q3** and RS Q3 Sportback** are designed as entirely fledged five-seater models and also offer limit bland usability for all their sportiness. The back seats can be changed fore-aft as customary by 150 millimeters (5.9 in) in a RS Q3** or 130 millimeters (5.1 in) in a RS Q3 Sportback**; their three-way separate backrests can be slanted in 7 stages. The luggage cell binds 530 liters (18.7 cu ft), with a backrests folded down a figure rises to 1,525 liters (53.9 cu ft) (Sportback: 1,400 liters (49.4 cu ft)).

Eight paint colors are accessible for a new RS Q3** and RS Q3 Sportback**, including a RS-specific colors Kyalami immature and Nardo gray. Customized paint finishes are accessible from Audi exclusive. The customary shimmer black styling package adds highlights to blades in front- and back bumper, window container trims, roof rails (RS Q3** only) and on a insert in a side sills. The patron can also sequence these equipment in aluminum demeanour as an option. In multiple with a shimmer black styling package, a Audi rings and a RS logos come in black on a front and rear.

The RS Q3** and RS Q3 Sportback** can be systematic starting in Oct 2019 and will go on sale during dealerships in Germany and other European countries by a finish of 2019. Prices for a high-performance SUV start during 63,500 euros. The SUV coupe starts during 65,000 euros.
