LED headlights with their particular daytime regulating light signature are standard; Audi also offers pattern LED headlights as an option. Compared with an A3, a front line of a RS 3 sedan is wider by 20 millimeters (0.8 in) – a front circle arches are accordingly wider flared as well. At a back spindle a wheels are spaced 14 millimeters (0.6 in) serve detached compared with a simple model.
A bound spoiler mouth on a luggage cell lid improves a subdivision of atmosphere flow. A particular diffusor insert with straight struts and a vast oval tailpipes of a RS empty complement cancel a rear. Audi exclusively offers a RS-specific paint colors Nardo gray and Catalunya red as options.
The dark-toned interior welcomes a motorist and passengers with bright doorway sills temperament a RS 3 logos as a customary feature. Black glorious Nappa leather competition seats with RS logos on a backrests are standard. Optionally accessible are some-more contoured RS competition seats with integrated conduct restraints. Their covers are also solid patterned and color-perforated. The RS competition leather steering circle is flattened during a bottom. Inlays during a instrument row and during a doors finish a atmosphere of sporty elegance.
Intuitive operation and high-definition displays
The prosaic hierarchies and cleverly related context menus make operation of a Audi RS 3 sedan discerning and ergonomic. The categorical control component is a rotary/push-button control on a console of a core tunnel. With a tip infotainment complement MMI navigation and with MMI touch, a depot includes a touchpad for scrolling, zooming and writing. Additionally enclosed is a giveaway content hunt underline that automatically completes a user’s submit after entering only a few letters. The voice control processes questions and commands formulated in typical language.
Standard is an electrically fluctuating MMI shade with a 7-inch diagonal. The dual round instrument dials are black with red needles and white scales.

On a high-resolution 12.3-inch guard a motorist can select between 3 arrangement modes. They embody a special RS shade that moves a tachometer to a center. On a left and right information appears on tire pressure, torque and g‑forces. When a delivery is handling in primer mode, a scale with a tone credentials prompts a motorist to use a steering circle paddle or selector push to upshift when coming limit revs.
Always online with Audi bond and Audi smartphone interface
An LTE procedure gets a Audi RS 3 sedan online. It brings on house a several services of Audi connect, including navigation with Google Earth and Google Street View, as good as information on fuel prices, a weather, transport and traffic. The information is displayed directly in a MMI, and operation is by approach of a standard-equipped RS multifunction steering wheel, a rotary/push-button control and touchpad or by oral command. Data is transmitted around a new Audi bond SIM, that is factory-installed in a car. With a analogous information prosaic rate a patron can immediately use a services for adult to 3 years giveaway of assign – even in other European countries. In addition, a navigation systems embody a Wi-Fi hotspot enabling passengers to roller a web with their tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.
