Audi RS Q3 Sportback 2.5l TFSI Quattro 2021 Radio Review

We take the Audi RS Q3 for a Road Test Review

Audi RS Q3 Sportback 2.5l TFSI Quattro. That’s a mouthful for a lot of car. RSQ3 will jump from 0-100kmh in 4.5 seconds and tops out at an electronically restricted 250kmh. But sheer performance doesn’t give the RSQ3 full credit.

RS Q3 Sportback arrives in Australia.

It is just so easy and comfortable to drive around everyday in auto, but select the dynamic drive mode and the character changes completely. It changes from an urban SUV to a howling beast.

A pleasant surprise is how well equipped the RS Q3 comes a standard, with wireless apple car play connectivity and charging tray, Audi virtual cockpit, stunning matrix LED headlights, Heated sports front seats and RS sports suspension with adaptive dampers.

Priced from just under $90,000 plus the usual costs the Audi RSQ3 is a performance bargain and definitely on my shopping list
