Audi RS Q3
It may have been a long time coming but it’s finally official. The all new Audi RS Q3, the first ever Q model to get the world renowned RS treatment. Ready to be unveiled for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in the coming weeks, the baby SUV / Crossover looks all grown up with the RS badge.
Under the bonnet expect to find a turbocharged 2.5L petrol drive train, pushing out 310 BHP and 420 Nm of torque. The 7 speed S Tronic bow and famous Quatro all-wheel drive to propel the little monster to 62 mph in 5.5 and on to a limited 155mph top speed. CO2 emissions are touted to be just over 200 g/km and an average mpg of 32.1 according the book.
When it comes to the looks its very much typical RS, a more aggressive stance with new bumpers, skirts, and a rather menacing honeycomb grille covering the front. The ride will drop 2.5 centimeters over the current model and sit on 19 or 20 inch alloys depending on your budget and desires.
Expect to see them hitting the roads late in 2013, what do you think of the all new Audi RS Q3? It looks like the aggressive, older brother of the hugely popular A1, and we can’t wait to get in it!
