Acceleration, Corners, and Competitors Are No Match For the 2018 Audi RS3

When the Audi RS3 originally broke ground in 2011, we clamored for an opportunity to drive it stateside. Unfortunately, it’s taken seven years for us to get our wish, and according to reviewers, it’s worth the wait. The 2018 model will arrive on our shores next year housing a turbocharged engine making 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque.

Audi’s RennSport division has worked its magic to make sure the RS3 is quick, and they haven’t let us down. In spite of the posted 4.1-second sprint to sixty, Motor Trend estimates that with launch control it can hit it in 3.8 seconds. On the road, the RS3 commands corners thanks to its all-wheel drive grip, with eager cornering attack with proactive torque vectoring promising control, and (with traction control off) a bit of back-end swing-out, if you’re into that. When it comes to daily driving, though, there’s nary a ding against the RS3’s comfort.

Arriving soon, the 2018 RS3 promises to be a riot that harkens back to Quattro rally-racing in spirit. If you’re interested, put down your name by contacting our Audi dealership in Danbury, CT as it’s convenient.
