The Audi RS Q3 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds, and its velocity only ends at an electronically regulated 250 km/h. In addition to all the sportiness, efficiency is not forgotten thanks to an intelligent start-stop system and recuperation.
The firing order in the extraordinary 5 cylinder basic concept provides the Audi RS Q3 with an unmistakeable soundscape that can be influenced with the RS exhaust valve control. Awarded “International Engine of the Year”* for the sixth consecutive year, it not only impresses with performance, torque and efficiency, but also with its remarkable sound.
Outstanding performance is achieved in conjunction with the 7-speed S tronic transmission—a dual-clutch transmission consisting of two transmission parts that changes gears by changing the power-transmitting clutch. This leads to gear changes that are precise, fast and have no discernable break in power. The S tronic has two programs in automatic mode: D (Drive) and S (Sport). In the manual mode, where gears can be actively changed, the transmission offers even greater driving enjoyment. At the same time, the high efficiency and a seventh gear that has been designed as overdrive with long transmission, supports efficient driving.
