Performance: The 400 horsepower in the RS 3 is a surprising amount of power for a relatively light car weighing around 3,500 pounds. The brakes, tires, and suspension are all upgraded to match, and standard all-wheel drive helps transfer the RS 3’s prodigious power to the road. Just keep in mind that this is a performance-focused car, so ride comfort takes a back seat to handling. However, driving enthusiasts likely won’t mind.
Interior: The RS 3 shares the same cool and upscale interior design as its A3 and S3 stablemates, although with a racier edge. Supple high-grade leather, contrast stitching, and suede-wrapped and textured panels make the RS 3 feel like a properly modern luxury sedan, but carbon-fiber accents, form-fitted firm seats, and a flat-bottom steering wheel reinforce the car’s ultra-performance capability. Excellent visibility out the back and sides makes for confident hustling through turns, threading tight traffic, or for the occasional turn on the racetrack. A pop-up infotainment dash display with crisp graphics makes it easy to view maps, media, or phone information.
Technology: Audi’s investment in technology helps distinguish it from contemporary rivals, and the RS 3 doesn’t disappoint. The navigation system can display on the infotainment screen or within the digital gauge cluster with a Google Earth overlay with landmarks, terrain, and 3D perspective views. Smartphones can connect through Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, or Audi’s interface, and voice controls respond well to voice commands. If you find an RS 3 with the optional Bang & Olufsen audio system, it’s worth it. Bass is impressive and audio quality is rich and detailed. We just wish more driver-assist features like adaptive cruise control were standard.
Roominess: Being a compact sedan, the RS 3 not surprisingly has limited rear seat space. Unfortunately, thanks to the all-wheel-drive hardware — the bulk of which is under the back of the car — cargo space is also limited, at a meager 10 cubic feet. A saving grace is the fold-down rear seatbacks, which allow carrying longer items as long as you don’t have rear passengers.
