Engine & performance
The RS3's five-cylinder engine is one of the car's most distinguishing features. Its odd number of cylinders gives it a distinct thrumming sound that was especially enjoyable on the previous model. The current version has a turbocharged 2.5-liter engine that now produces 401 horsepower. Its predecessor had all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The fuel economy information has not yet been released. But, as soon it was released we will be informing you about it.
Body Design of Audi RS3
We can have a good idea about the new coming RS3 by looking at the prototype of the vehicle. The massive air inlets on either side of the grille up front, with incorporated vents to guide air to the brakes, are the most noticeable features of the body.
A large mesh trim that spans the width of the bumper, as well as a large pair of exhaust outlets, can be found on the back of the saloon's sports. Even though we can get a brief idea about the car from those images available already, not much of the official photographs of the RS3 are yet released.
The interior design of the Audi RS3
The inside of the next Audi RS3 should be very similar to that of the existing Audi S3, but with some racier RS-branded features. A flat-bottomed steering wheel and sportier front seats are expected to be among them.
New RS graphics are also likely to appear on the customizable digital display. Maybe lap time monitoring and other performance-oriented data logging will be available.
A pair of high-mounted air vents facing the driver and facing the instrument panel binnacle could be part of the dashboard design. Climate controls with physical buttons are located below the center touchscreen.
Infotainment and connectivity
Based on the A3 and S3's infotainment systems, we expect the RS3 will include a 10.1-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash. To control the vehicle various input methods like touch inputs, steering wheel buttons, and voice instructions may use. The other features that we can expect are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. Wireless charging, built-in navigation, and a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot will all be standard or optional.
The safety measures and the technology used for safety and other needs are in the dark for now. But as soon as the RS3 2022 will be out, these pieces of information will be available.
