About it with reference to the head of marketing Department of Audi Sport reports Auto Express.
According to published data, the new generation of the “charged” Audi RS3 model will be presented to the world no earlier than the summer of 2021. According to Frank Michael, head of marketing at Audi Sport, this model is a very important part of the brand’s DNA, so each next generation of models will receive only the best solutions and characteristics.
It is reported that the novelty will be driven by the same 2.5-liter 5-cylinder turbo engine with a capacity of at least 415 HP and 500 Nm of torque, which will be paired with a robotic gearbox, data on the mechanics has not yet been published. Of course, all power will be transferred to all four wheels using the Quattro all-wheel drive system.
As for the appearance, the novelty will not “shout” that it is fast – Audi is going to only slightly change the front part compared to the standard Audi A3, slightly expand the wheel arches and add a new diffuser. In addition, the network has rumors about the release of an even more powerful version of the RS3-Audi RS3 Performance, which will get more than 450 HP and “put on the shoulder blades” Mercedes-AMG A45 S with its 416 HP.
