Audi RS3

What's on this page

Audi RS3 Australia

Audi launched its first ever fire-breathing RS3 hot hatch in Australia in 2015, taking the donor A3 platform to new levels of performance – and creating the cheapest RS in Audi’s high performance line to date.

The 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine and the all-wheel drivetrain give the RS3 a potent performance edge, while the company itself likes to tout its five-door, five-seat hatchback credentials as the basis of a truly everyday sports car. Current prices range from $80,611 for the RS3 Sportback Quattro to $89,900 for the RS3 2.5 Tfsi Quattro Carbon Editn - all of which come with a seven-speed dual-clutch auto as standard.

Audi RS3 Interior

The Audi RS3's interior does have a bit of an older dashboard design, and it's not quite as modern as some of the newer Audis out there. There's an all-new RS3 coming, which will no doubt address that, but even so - as the images attest - the cabin is still smart and well laid out, with some premium trim elements and lovely leather available, too.

Shown above are interior details for the Audi RS3 2018.

Audi RS3 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Audi RS3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Audi RS3 vs BMW M3

    Obviously they’re both high performance cars that are designed to eat up the open road, but equally they have to be able to handle the pressures of day-to-day motoring. I wouldn’t like to say one is better than the other for daily use, and I wouldn’t be buying one on that basis, so go for the one that most appeals for its performance.
