Audi has updated the RS Q3 compact performance SUV, which now comes standard with a refined seven-speed S tronic transmission. Its 2.5-liter engine produces 335 hp and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque, the latter between 1,600 and 5,300 rpm.

The top model in the series now accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds on its way to an electronically governed top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). An RS exhaust system with a switchable flap adds even more volume to the sound of the five-cylinder engine.

The base price in Germany for the new top model is 56,600 euros. Deliveries of the RS Q3 will begin across Europe in the first quarter of 2015.

RS Q3's Exterior Design

Sharp visual accents demonstrate the potential of the new Audi RS Q3. The Singleframe grille - with a matt aluminum-look frame and high-gloss black honeycomb grille - has been redesigned, and a quattro logo adorns the air intake in the front bumper. The aluminum roof rails, long RS roof spoiler, updated LED taillights and xenon headlights, the modified rear bumper and the long, elliptical exhaust tailpipe complete the dynamic look. Four appearance packages, two each in matt aluminum-look and glossy black, provide for further customization. Sepang Blue pearl effect is available as an exclusive exterior color.

Dynamic Interior

The dynamic line is echoed in the car's interior. The sport seats with embossed RS Q3 logos are covered in a combination of black Alcantara and leather, with Fine Nappa leather and Fine Nappa leather with diamond quilting available as options. High-gloss black, bright red and subtle aluminum applications set additional accents. The inlays come standard in black piano lacquer, and optionally in aluminum or carbon.

Chassis and Suspension

The seven-speed S tronic, which transfers the power to the quattro drivetrain via a new hydraulic multi-plate clutch (5th generation), has also been refined for even faster gear changes. The lower gears are closely spaced for sporty response while the seventh gear is tall to save fuel.

19-inch wheels come as standard; 20-inch wheels are optionally available. Thanks to the wave design, the large brake discs on the front axle are now one kilogram (2.2 lb) lighter.

The taut RS sport suspension lowers the body by 20 millimeters (0.8 in) versus the Q3. Audi also offers the RS sport suspension with optional damper control. The adaptive dampers can be set to one of three modes using the standard Audi drive select system. The system also influences the accelerator, steering, S tronic, exhaust flap and the adaptive light (optional).
