Audi recently launched its all-new RS3 locally, now featuring even more performance, sharper dynamics and better in-car technologies. Here is everything that you need to know about the RS3.
In this article:
Is the Audi RS3 a good car?
The RS3 is based on the A3, a fantastic car in its own right, so when we consider that this RS3 has such solid underpinnings along with an award-winning powertrain, we feel as though it is safe to say that it is a very good car.
Who is the Audi RS3 a good car for?
The Audi RS3 appeals to those who are looking for a high-performance hatchback that is also usable on a daily basis.
Is the Audi RS3 a good first car?
The RS3 is simply too fast and too expensive to recommend for new drivers.
Is the Audi RS3 a good family car?
Available in both Sportback and sedan guise, the RS3 is a reasonably spacious and practical car for families, while its solid safety rating is also a big plus point for the model.
Is there a Hybrid Audi RS3?
As one of the brand’s last internal combustion engine-only offerings, there is currently no hybrid variant in the model range.

What’s it like to drive?
“The latest RS3 has over-delivered on what this writer had expected, offering a package that is both usable, fun, fast, beautifully built and with the sort of menacing aesthetics and interior quality we would associate with larger Audi RS products such as the RS6 and RS7.”
– Sean Nurse, AutoTrader
What does it look like?
What is the Audi RS3 like inside?
The latest RS3, in typical Audi RS style, features a high-quality interior with a variety of different colours and textures, creating a premium performance-oriented cabin that is equally comfortable on the race track as it is on the daily grind.
“The design of the new Audi RS 3 is even more dynamic and powerful than that of its predecessor. In the front, the wide RS bumper, the redesigned Singleframe with its distinctive honeycomb grille, and the large air intakes give the compact sports car an expressive appearance. Behind the flared fenders, a slightly protruding air outlet creates a motorsport look.”- Audi
