2018 Audi RS3 is a new model in this class this time offered to the US market, as the opposite of the last two series sold only for the countries outside of US. According to the last two series, RS class has always been very interesting and popular among the buyers, with the great engine features and attractive design, so Audi is not the only manufacturer which offered this class to the buyers. Ford has already done that with the great selling season, so there are not reasons that Audi does not repeat the same success.
The RS class is one of those which represent the upgraded chassis and sporty designed outside look on the top of the basic model. That happens with the 2018 Audi RS3, which, besides the always attractive look has many details which separate it from the basic model. Looking from the front end, this sedan has wide and massive mesh front grille, with irregularly shaped LED lights and thin air intake on the bottom of the bumper with wide ends where are fog lights. The rear end is also massive, mostly thanks to the massive bumper with protection and well shaped thin rear lights and thin spoiler on the truck door. The side of the car has only two thin dents and nothing more.
The cabin of 2018 Audi RS3 follows the sporty look and shape visible from the outside, so it has a specially shaped cabin, with the many additions and devices for that purposes. Maybe the biggest news is wide space for the adult passengers on the second row and quality materials which cabin parts are made of. The manufacturer put the best infotainment and entertainment system inside, which supports the engine performances and many improvements in term of safety driving.
Speaking of the driving, the buyers will be pleased with strong 2.5-liter turbocharged and intercooler DOHC 20-valve 5-inline petrol engine with aluminum block and head and direct fuel injection. This amazing engine produces 400 horsepower of strength and 325 pound-feet of torque. The manufacturer has chosen to put seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission with manual shifting mode, concluding that it helps in providing the best engine performances. And they are the best in the class, with the 3.9 seconds needed for increasing to 60 mph and 170 mph measured as top speed.
