2018 RS3 sedan makes its North American debut



The 2018 Audi RS 3 is the first of its design in the R class. Specifically crafted for the US market, the engine of the new RS 3 features the storied Audi 5-cylinder producing that unique purr. Attention to detail on the inside gives driver-oriented controls and functions that are easy to navigate. The attractive interior presents a sporty luxurious feel, giving customers exactly what they are looking for in the sport line up.

The attention to detail is not limited to just the interior. Featuring an updated 2.5L TFSI® engine paired with a seven-speed S tronic® dual clutch transmission, the RS 3 has a maximum torque of 354 lb.-ft. This vehicle can shoot from 0-60 MPH in an impressive 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 155 MPH. With high levels of performance and acceleration, the standard seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission is unmatched due to the smooth driving experience it provides.

The braking system on the RS 3 provides reliable stopping performance. Two different brake systems are available: front and rear disc brakes with eight-piston monobloc brake calipers painted black with the RS logo, and front carbon ceramic discs.

Launching this summer, only a limited number of the RS 3 sedans starting at $54,900 will be produced. While it may be difficult to get your hands on a 2018 RS 3, Audi Hoffman Estates has an expansive inventory of RS models, so stop in today for a test drive!
