Audi RS3 Sportback

In a world in which the electric motors and hybrid systems will be soon the normal way of propelling our vehicles, there is still a place to talk about cars to be irrational and little powerhouses logical for certain dimensions. In this case we refer to Audi RS3 Sportback, which has just been updated offering increased performance, dynamic and some other changes in your outer image and in the equipment.

The main change that incorporates the renovated Audi RS3 Sportback is, as we have already seen in the Audi RS3 Sedan, the increased power of the 2.5 TFSI five-cylinder. Has past to offer 367 HP, that neither were anything wrong, to pay exactly 400 HP, that is to say, it has gained 33 HP. The maximum torque shall be 480 Nm, with a wide range of work, from 1700 to the 5.850 rpm. This, combined with the quattro allows you to switch from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.

400 HP and a torque of 480 Nm are not easy to transmit to the tarmac. In a car with traction to a single axis would be a guarantee of loss of motor skills, especially at the exit of the slow corners. The quattro manages to avoid it. Says Audi as more sporty the driving torque sent to the rear axle, although it will also do if you select the driving mode in sport in the Audi drive select.

on the other hand, the Audi RS3 Sporback greatly improves the stability with respect to an Audi A3 “normal”, although it will also be true that the comfort will not be comparable. In comparison with an A3, the RS3 Sportback has a configuration more dynamic suspension, discount of 25 mm height and widens to 20 mm, the front track. Serial brings 19-inch alloy wheels with low profile tires in size 235/35, in addition to a few brake discs of 310 mm, and can be carbocerámicos on the front axle.

In regards to the cosmetic changes, follow the same line that the full range Audi A3, but with anabolic regular RS models. This way we are with the headlights on LED lighting (in option can be matrix-LED), the grille Singleframe with outline and chrome grille honeycomb gloss black, air intakes, aggressive in the corners, mirror housings in chrome and the aforementioned 19-inch alloy wheels as standard. The frames of the windows are chrome, as are the roof bars. Behind highlight the bumper with the marking diffuser low black and the two exhaust outlets oval.

If we go to the cabin, we find a high quality upholstery and finishings. in Addition, the dashboard will already be the famous Virtual Cockpit premiered in the Audi TT and later was extended by Audi and Volkswagen. Otherwise, logically, you will find a sports steering wheel with leather and Alcantara in addition to enrollment RS, pedals in aluminum, sport seats, etc.; although, to tell the truth, the interior of the Audi RS should be something more different to the rest of the range.
