2019 Audi RS Q3 At The Nurburgring Release Date, Price, Redesign, & Spy Shots – The Mercedes-AMG GLA45 is currently the king of the sports subcompact crossovers, but that may perfectly change quickly enough. That is because Audi is busy developing the RS Q3, which strives to upstage the Merc and sit at the top of its class.
Spied testing at the Nurburgring fairly recently, the RS Q3 bears loads of generation elements, such as the new grille, reworked bumpers, and other elements that may identify it from lesser versions of the second-gen Q3. Stuff get truly fascinating under the pores and skin, as the brand’s technicians have up-to-date the chassis to allow it to manage the extra grunt.
Communicating of which, the RS Q3 will use the identical engine as the RS3 Sportback and RS3 Sedan. The turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder is expected to keep the 400 PS (394 hp / 294 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque that propel the popular hatch to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, and up to a top speed electronically capped at 250 km/h (155 mph), or 280 km/h (174 mph) without the need of the speed limiter.
Audi will launch the new RS Q3 after mid-2019, in all possibility, most likely next to the lesser SQ3, that can get there with the S3 Sportback’s and S3 Sedan’s 310 PS (306 hp / 228 kW) turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.
