For those who want more fun, cheerful looks, a new engine and 4.5 seconds to “hundreds”.
Audi, as promised, continues to expand its fleet of sports cars in different body types. The necessity to build a “charged” versions of crossover and cross-coupe with the index Q3 brought the Audi Sport engineers to create a modernized version of the famous five-cylinder motor. 2.5-liter turbocharged engine was not only more powerful but also easier. For example, the unit is supplied with an aluminum crankcase (minus 18 kg), a hollow crankshaft (kilogram) and a number of other components. Total weight savings reached 26 kg.
The output of the motor raised with 367 HP in the RS Q3 the previous generation version Performance up to 400 HP and 480 Nm of torque. The engine works with a seven-speed gearbox S tronic and all-wheel drive system. The dynamic characteristics of the crossover and the cross-coupe was identical: 4.5 seconds to 100 km/h and a traditional 250 km/h maximum speed. As usual, for extra charge you can move the Rev limiter up to 280 km/h. By the way, innovations were much more dynamic than RS Q3 the previous generation, but its Performance version in the dispersal to “hundreds” of still inferior – though symbolic of 0.1 s.
By default, the RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback will be equipped with a sports suspension lowered by 10 mm ground clearance, but optionally available chassis Dynamic Chassis Control adaptive dampers. Standard equipment includes brakes with calipers sectionshave that for some money you can replace the combination carbon-ceramic discs with monobloc aluminum calipers.
To distinguish RS-SUVs from their conventional counterparts will be very easy thanks to a new grille with the coarse mesh to the bumper with wedge-shaped accents and enlarged air inlets (inserts in the bumper can be black, and silver), the spoiler on the trunk lid and the impressive terminals of the exhaust system.
