Recently Audi has presented the compact Q3 SUV of the second generation. It will compete with the Mercedes-Benz GLA and BMW X1. The company continues developing the model working on 2 hot versions – S and RS.
The basic car has upgraded design in and out, new engines, technologies and even the platform. One of the variants of the possible RS-version’s exterior can be seen on the Internet. Although the virtual updates look realistic, we need to wait until the beginning of 2019, before we know what the new Audi RS Q3 really looks like.
As rumored, Audi will install a 2.5-liter 5-cylinder turbo motor on the sports modification, inherited from the RS3 Sportback model. It outputs 394 hp and 480 Nm of torque.
If the information is true, then the future RS Q3 will be able to accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the car will be limited by electronics at 250 or 270 km / h.
