Full specifications


Inside, the RS3 is obviously very similar to the A3 – but there are lots of features to set it apart and make it feel more special, including sumptuously finished and supportive leather sports seats. Audi Virtual Cockpit with it’s clear, full-colour TFT instrument cluster is standard too.

There’s also a flat-bottomed steering wheel covered in part-leather and part-Alcantara and alloy pedals to finish the sporty look. Navigation is standard, as is Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, plus Bluetooth and a 10-speaker Audi Sound System.

From 2017 both five-door Sportback and four-door saloon body styles are available. The Sportback is the more practical choice, with a hatchback boot and up to 1220 litres of storage with the seats folded down, versus 880 litres for the saloon. Both cars have reasonable rear head and leg room, though taller passengers will struggle a little – especially in the saloon.

Equipment levels are very good, which you’d expect given the price – but there are still lots of optional extras. They include numerous high-quality exterior paint finishes, plus the option of your own custom colour, along with a selection of interior upholstery options and inlay materials, plus six different 19-inch alloy wheel designs.

There are two technology packs too, with the Driver Assistance Pack adding adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assistance, active lane assist, high-beam assist and traffic sign recognition. The Comfort and Sound pack adds an improved audio system, reversing camera and a keyless entry and start system.

Standard Equipment:

RS 3 includes 19-inch alloy wheels, RS Sport suspension, RS exhaust system, Audi Drive Select, LED headlights, RS exterior styling, front sports seats in Nappa Leather, split-fold rear bench, dual-zone climate control, stainless steel pedals, aluminium interior details, Audi Virtual Cockpit, MMI Navigation Plus, 10GB Jukebox for music storage, DVD drive, 2x USB in, 2x SDXC card readers, aux-in, Audi Connect, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, cruise control and parking sensors.
