    Compact top athletes: Audi RS 3 Sedan and RS 3 Sportback

    With their high-tech suspension, the new five-cylinder engine and a sharper look the Audi RS 3 Sedan* and the Audi RS 3 Sportback* are at the top of their class. RS-specific details in the interior and the unmatched sound of the 2.5 TFSI engine complete the emotional driving experience. Five-cylinder engines are a great tradition at Audi. In the 1980s they made a decisive contribution to furthering the success of the brand both in motor sports and on the road. After a break of many years, they made a comeback in 2009 when the 2.5 TFSI was fitted in the Audi TT RS. In 2011, the first generation of the RS 3 Sportback followed, in 2013 the RS Q3 and in 2015 the second edition of the RS 3 Sportback. The RS 3 Sportback has now been modified considerably. It is now joined by the new RS 3 Sedan with which the brand is expanding its offering at an international level. It is the first compact Audi Sedan to bear the RS label as well as being the first to feature a transversely-mounted five-cylinder engine. The pioneer of this design was the Audi A3 clubsport quattro concept study from 2014. “The five-cylinder engine is a legendary element of our company’s DNA,” says Stephan Winkelmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “Now, with 400 hp, it will take up pole position worldwide – and not only in the RS 3 Sportback but also in the RS 3 Sedan. Both models will offer our customers an attractive entry into the RS world.”
