4-door performance Sportback with unique S4 exterior styling, enhanced brakes and suspension.
The last generation of RS 3 was introduced in 2003 and proved to be a huge success which triggered the production of the RS 3 Sportback in 2004 and the sporty S3 in 2006 and RS3 in 2011. This year Audi will release its third generation of RS 3 and expects to take the luxury sports hatchback market by storm. The RS 3 has been redesigned and based on the new and much loved new design of the smaller A1. The rear of the car now has a sloping pillar to give a more rounded and attractive look and the new style Audi front features the well-loved Audi grille with lower air intakes each side which not only house the fog lights but help to show the high performance characteristics of the engine.
The Audi designers have created an interior that is not only modern and sporty, but is ergonomic too. In typical Audi style you will find every control, button and feature has been placed in a thoroughly thought out place, making it easy for the driver and passengers to find every control they could need. The RS 3 features an easy entry system which allows the front seats to slide far forward allowing passengers’ greater space to enter the rear of the car, which is spacious enough to comfortably accommodate three adults. The dashboard features four jet design air vents that allow for either a widespread fan of air or a more centred stream. Dependant on trim line, the steering wheel can either be three of four spoke or flat-bottomed with perforated leather, while other interior features can also include optional leather such as the seats which can be covered in Audi’s prestigious Milano leather. Other smaller touches can be covered too, such as the gear shifter and underside of the dashboard.
The new Audi RS 3 will start with a number of Audi’s award winning petrol and diesel engines featuring lightweight production and advanced induction technologies to produce exceptional performance without the need to use bigger, heavier engines. The RS 3 features the highly efficient and highly acclaimed 2.0 TDI 6 speed manual which boasts 68.9 combined mpg as well as 150hp and 320nm achieving a 0-60mph sprint in 8.6 seconds. The petrol variants include the frugal yet powerful 1.4 TFSI found in the Audi A1 which boasts 122hp and 200nm due to its advanced turbocharging technology. The 1.4 TFSI achieves a combined economy cycle of 54.3 mpg. The Sportier choice is a 1.8 TFSI which comes standard with Audi’s astonishing 7 speed S tronic gearbox which provides smooth and lightning fast gear shifts as well as a full sport mode.
The 1.8 TFSI achieves 180hp and 250nm available from 1250 rpm, equalling an always engaging drive with power on tap whenever it’s needed. The 1.8 TFSI makes the 0-60 sprint in just 7.2 seconds as well producing a combined fuel cycle of 50.4mpg.
There are hundreds of options on the new Audi RS 3 to make the driving experience truly perfect for you. The HDD-based MMI satellite navigation plus provides full 3D ground mapping of many sights and city models as well as turning the car into a WLAN hotspot which provides internet for up to 8 devices on the go.

I'd recommend Audi Worthing because staff were fantastic and made the whole process so simple despite the fact I like over 100 miles away.
