First deliveries of the Audi RS 3 Sportback begin next month. The five cylinder TFSI engine is capable of 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 155mph. The Audi RS 3 Sportback boasts 19 inch alloy wheels, the standard wheel finish is a machine-polished titanium look and a black finish with red rim inserts is also available as an option.
The interior of the Audi RS 3 Sportback has upholstered sport seats in Fine Nappa leather with silver contrasting stitching with inlays finished in Piano black or the new Aluminium Race look. A flat-bottomed RS steering wheel and an exclusive design for the instruments and S tronic selector lever also highlight the Audi RS3 status, as does a specially configured Driver’s Information System which displays boost pressure and oil temperature and doubles as a lap timer. Standard equipment includes the Sport button, acoustic rear parking sensors, electronic climate control, DVD based satellite navigation, xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights.
The Audi RS 3 Sportback has the strongest residual values of any series production car currently available in the UK. The residual value figure comes from CAP, which predicts that after three years your RS3 will be worth 49 per cent of what you paid for it.
