Fast and Unforgiving: The Brand-New 2018 Audi RS 3
The Audi RS 3 is finally here! After seemingly being denied RS options for many years, this unapologetic sporty sedan is making its debut in Canada. This is an RS that has been designed and reconfigured for the North American market. It was built to drive here and it’s ready to show you exactly what it can do. It delivers race-car performance from its 5-cylinder engine. Your blood will be pumping through the whole drive.
Audi Sport is a title given only to those vehicles worthy of it. It is something that is earned and worn like a badge of honour. The heritage of the RS model is ingrained in the history of motor-sport around the world. Not only because of its exceptional performance but because of its domination. The RS 3’s engine is award winning and you’ll feel why the moment you start the engine.

2018 Audi RS 3 Performance
An engine doesn’t get much better than “International Engine of The Year”, especially if it’s won 7 years in a row. This is the engine you get in the RS 3, which scored a momentous 307 points in its category, beating its closest second by over a hundred points. The 2.5L 5-cylinder engine is one of the most powerful engines to be put into a small sedan with a maximum output of 400 horsepower. It would be close to beating even the fastest Audi even with its 5 doors, and accelerates from 0 to 100km/hr in 4.1 seconds. The 7-speed S tronic transmission pushes the boundaries further to give you complete control over your drive.
2018 Audi RS 3 Exterior & Interior Styling
One of the first things you notice on the brand-new Audi RS 3 is the over-sized tailpipes. You’ll hear them before you see them too, as they create a distinct soundtrack. The exterior features give homage to the rich racing history on which this vehicle is born. Flared wheel arches, and RS-specific front and rear bumpers are bold. Clean lines, distinct features and athletic styling pull everything on the RS 3 together, making it an amazing option for wherever the road takes you. Inside, you’ll first grab hold of the flattened multi-function steering wheel. RS styling details are strewn about the cabin, as well as the stitching on the seats. Everything creates a cohesive feeling inside-out.
2018 Audi RS 3 Technology
The 2018 Audi RS 3 features Audi’s virtual cockpit. Virtual cockpit puts all your vital information right in front of you on the dash. This includes fuel efficiency, vehicle information and speed. A coloured display screen shows your entertainment and technology features including Bluetooth and smartphone information. Everything in the RS 3 has been combined to create a sleek, innovative and technologically rich compact sedan with maximum outputs.
