2018 Audi RS3 Sportback review

Loud. Outrageous. Utterly illogical. Usually these aren’t flattering terms, but apply them to the Audi RS3 Sportback and they become an ode to automotive hooliganism in one of its finest forms.

2017 Audi RS3 sedan review

There's a new heart and a new body, but the formula remains the same. Does the 2017 Audi RS3 sedan have the goods to tackle the meanest hatch and sedan combo from Mercedes-AMG and BMW?

BMW M2 v Audi RS3 v Mercedes-AMG A45: Track battle

We have received countless emails about three of the hottest sub-$100k performance cars on the market. So, we're going to finally settle it. Which is quicker around the track? We pit the BMW M2 against the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45. We get former World Rally Car driver Chris Atkinson behind the wheel to set lap times and figure out which is quickest...

Audi RS3 Review : Track drive at Vallelunga race circuit

http://www.caradvice.com.au/349126/?yt_desc - Read the article here. Where competitors opt for four-pot engines, Audi maintains its emotional attachment to the five-cylinder that dates back to 1983 for its Sport quattro model. Audi engineers tell us the torque characteristics especially of a five-cylinder engine make it hard to ignore...

Audi RS3 v BMW M2 v Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Track Test

What’s the fastest performance car you can buy for under $100,000? That’s the question we keep getting asked over and over again. The number of contenders is rather varied and the argument remains that you can certainly buy a $50,000 car and spend another $50k to make it supercar fast, but ultimately, there are only three cars that have the credibility to make it to this test...

Audi RS3 vs Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Dynamic Test

This is a continuation of our two-part comparison between the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45. For the road test component and finer details of the cars and this comparison’s setup, click here. Less than a decade ago it would have been hard to imagine that a 2.0-litre engine would come from the factory with 280kW of power and offer a 0-100km/h time of 4...

Audi RS3 v Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Road Test

The Audi RS3 is going to win. It just is, there’s no doubt about it. That was the mental block and extreme bias this reviewer faced internally, one early morning before this comparison had even begun. You see, when the Audi RS3 came out in late 2015 and yours truly got behind the wheel around some historic Targa Tasmania roads, it was a great feeling of supreme serenity...

Audi RS3 vs Jaguar I-Pace drag race - video

Internal combustion or electric power – which is quicker? Tesla has highlighted how hard electric vehicles can accelerate, but Jaguar has taken a slightly different approach with the I-Pace, shying away from bonkers 0-100km/h times. For now, anyway. With a handy 294kW and 680Nm on tap, the first all-electric Jaguar has exactly the same amount of power as the Audi RS3...

Schaeffler Audi RS3 concept gets Formula E tech

Schaeffler, engineering firm and Audi's partner in Formula E, has unveiled the electric 4ePerformance concept, complete with 880kW from four electric motors. They're not just any electric motors, either, they're identical to those used on the 2016-17 ABT Schaeffler Formula E racer. That puts total power at 880kW, and system torque at 1280Nm from all four motors...

2018 Audi RS3 quattro review

The RS3 seems to be the car everyone is raving on about in the hot hatch world (yes, I realise this review is about the sedan!). I got caught up in the hype and bought a brand-new one in late 2017, and it arrived early 2018. I have had my Audi RS3 sedan for about 2.5 months now and have covered nearly 4000km in that time...

2016 Audi RS3 Sportback quattro review

I have had my RS3 for a year and a half now, and it has been a great car for day to day driving. In fact, the best I have ever had for this task. It makes the commute back and forth from work damn fun! I bought it after a test drive where I was looking at the RS4, but the RS3 was faster and had a lot more character, so I made the (right) choice in getting it...

2017 Audi RS3 quattro review

The RS3 sedan is an absolute pleasure to drive. I have owned it for two months and it is great in every way. The 2.5-litre has a great sound, and the all-wheel drive means it sticks to the road like nothing I have experienced. The team at Audi Sport do their magic so well and these cars are amazing...

2016 Audi RS3 Sportback quattro Review

I got the Performance pack which is a must – magnetic ride control; larger front wheels; B&O 705 Watt sound system; privacy glass which is dark glass but you still have to get clear tint on it to stop UV rays; moon roof. I also optioned the ceramic clear paint and leather protection. For a black car this is a must. I simply just hose dust off...
