5 reasons to buy the 2020 Audi RS3

1. Powerful performance

The 2020 Audi RS3 delivers impressive performance with its turbocharged 2.5L five-cylinder engine, generating 394 horsepower. Its agility and precise handling make it a true driver's car, providing an exhilarating experience on both city streets and winding roads. The stiff suspension makes it feel like a race car, contributing to exceptional handling that's heaps of fun when you get a chance to put your foot down.

2. Quattro all-wheel drive

The RS3 comes with Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system as standard. This contributes to this practical car's fantastic handling and traction. It also enhances the RS3's performance in adverse weather conditions, allowing for confident and controlled driving. If you're looking for something that you can put through its paces, the 2020 RS3 is worth checking out.

3. High-end interior

It's right to expect a certain level of refinement from the interior of an Audi and the 2020 RS3 is no exception. The cabin is well crafted with nice attention to detail and a range of features to enhance comfort — including supportive sports seats. The user-friendly infotainment system includes smartphone integration and navigation. For the most part, you'll probably want to listen to the Audi's exhaust note but if you love to put on music while you drive, look out for the Comfort and Sound Pack to get a Bang & Olufsen® sound system.

4. Standout design

With its aggressive styling cues, including a distinctive front grille, large air intakes, and flared wheel arches, the RS3 boasts a striking design that sets it apart from others on the road. While it looks sporty, though, it's not over the top. This is the kind of car you can drive to the office without attracting too much attention. The styling is far from boring, but if you want to turn things up a notch, look out for an RS3 in one of the Audi exclusive colors—how does bright green or orange sound?

5. Compact and practical

The 2020 Audi RS3 has the heart of a sports car but it's still compact and practical for everyday use. It has a decent-sized 10 cu-ft trunk, which is plenty for your bags for a weekend getaway. Considering the powerful engine, you'll also get an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined, which isn't too bad for a 394-hp vehicle.

This versatility makes it suitable for daily commuting, city breaks, and spirited driving adventures.
