Product Overview

Audi RS Q3 (Type F3) is the performance variant of the Mk2 Q3 subcompact crossover in production from 2019. It is available powered by a single turbocharged inline-5 engine that displaced 2.5 liters.
Essentially, the Mk2 RS Q3 is just a jacked-up RS 3. However, with the fat of the crossover form factor plus bigger wheels (unsprung weight) and higher center of gravity, the RS Q3 has worse handling and ride comfort.

Sentiment Score 74%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Off-the-line performance is pulsating, and the 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder noise reverberates around the cabin while pulling so strongly up to the 7,000rpm redline. Accessing the performance is made easier with the arrival of a new RS button on the steering wheel. Top speed is limited to 155mph - upped to 174mph on request. Ceramic front brakes are an expensive optional extra, but they only really make sense on track, where few RS Q3s will venture.

Pros
  • Powerful turbocharged engine
  • Comfortable to drive
