Audi is a company that has redefined the term versatility in the automobile market. When you are able to produce a car equally fit for a family and or on a racetrack, success is imminent. Since the Audi RS 3 made its debut, Canadians quickly realized what made Europeans so obsessed with this model. After driving the RS 3, you will definitely be eager to ask the favourite question of any driver after buying a new car: “Is there anything it can’t do?“

A Style Known To All


For this particular model, the designer team went with their already tested and tried design. The Audi RS 3 looks very elegant and well-built, and the carefully arched roofline emits what Audi is all about. An impeccable design of both the front and rear ends of the car perfectly blend into what a sport compact sedan should look like. The elegant side seems to be dominant, although a touch of sporty and athletic looks is similarly strong and intriguing, providing a hint that gives away what the RS 3 is truly capable of.

High-Performance in Every Way


Considering that the RS 3 is supposed to achieve success in every aspect of driving, a proper powertrain to support the concept was needed. Audi decided to offer the RS 3 with a turbocharged 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine producing 400 horsepower. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission distributes power to all four wheels, and the reliability and strength of Audi’s Quattro system are already well known. The company went even a step further and improved Quattro’s software as well. The engine is incredibly powerful and quick, and due to the fact that it is made from slightly lighter materials, it is a perfect fit for a vehicle of this size. Whether it is the open road on a straight line or cutting through corners (something that the RS 3 excels at by default), the turbocharged 2.5-litre engine injects the perfect dose of power to make the experience even more enjoyable and fun. It feels great and sounds even better.

The RS 3 sits firmly on the ground, and its handling and steering bring fun even to U-turns in urban areas, not to mention if you decide to take this beauty on a zig-zag adventure through the countryside. For those who are keen to explore the most extreme side of the RS 3, you will immediately fall in love with the control and power given to you in this setup. You get the best of both worlds - firm and maneuverable in the city, wild and agile everywhere else. The RS 3 provides you with total control of its abilities and even goes a step further to ensure you enjoy every moment of it.

Simply Put, An Overachiever


The RS series is known to deliver the highest quality of interior with every model; the RS 3 is certainly not an exception. It is actually the perfect example of how a carefully crafted and luxurious interior can contribute to one’s daily drive. The perfectly designed front seats emit a strong racing vibe, while the back seats are there to offer complete comfort to rear passengers. The highly advanced virtual dash in the RS 3 provides the driver with every information needed for a smooth and fun drive, and controlling other electronic utilities and gadgets is extremely easy, mainly due to the perfectly positioned and accessible dashboard. An interior of the highest quality and functionality will be there to enhance the overall feeling of power and luxury that the RS 3 has to offer.

The Audi RS 3 combines all the virtues a modern consumer is looking for. It is a car perfectly fit for any surrounding, ready to transform itself in order to bring joy and fun to your daily drive in a way never before seen. The RS 3 is undoubtedly an excellent choice for a car that has so much to offer, and if the past is anything to go by, it looks like Audi will have great success in presenting the all-powerful RS 3 to Canadian customers.
