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.
The most powerful series-production 5-cylinder in the world – the 2.5 TFSI – provides propulsion in both the facelifted Audi RS 3 Sportback and the new Audi RS 3 Sedan, which is the first compact notchback Audi with an RS badge. It delivers 400 horsepower (294 kW) – 33 hp more than the predecessor engine – and is 26 kilograms (57.3 lb) lighter, above all thanks to its aluminum crankcase. Its maximum torque of 480 Nm (354.0 lb-ft) is available at engine speeds as low as 1,700 rpm and remains constant up to 5,850 rpm. The compact RS models sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in only 4.1 seconds. Immense tractive power is accompanied by the unmistakable sound of the five-cylinder engine. This comes from having the ignition alternate between directly adjacent cylinders and widely spaced ones. On request, Audi can increase the electronically limited top speed from 250 km/h (155.3 mph) to 280 km/h (174.0 mph).
