Audi RS Q3 new generation will receive an increase in powerAugust 17, 2018
In the last few weeks, Audi is actively testing a prototype of the second generation of the “charged” crossover RS Q3. His debut will take place early next year, but now insider information about the characteristics and type of his engine begins to appear.
According to the British edition of Autocar, the crossover will save under the hood a turbocharged five-cylinder TFSI engine with a volume of 2.5 liters, but its capacity will increase from 335 horsepower in the current model to 362 forces. By the way, about this power develops the current RS Q3 Performance. The gearbox will remain, apparently, the same – a seven-speed two-disk “robot” S-Tronic with the index DQ500, which can also be found on the diesel versions Q3 with a two-liter engine.
As for the modification of the Q3 RS Performance in a new generation car, nothing is known about it yet. But it would be logical if she received a 395-strong version of the engine, because the Germans would not even have to invent anything in this respect, because this engine is equipped with “charged” RS3 and TT RS.
Colleagues also report that RS Q3 will be produced at the brand plant in the Hungarian city of Gyor, and there will also be engines for this machine.
Thus, it can be stated that the cross will compete with the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45, as the Seat Ateca Cupra and Volkswagen T-Roc R are expected to receive engines with a payout of around 300 forces, and they will be four-cylinder.
The new Q3 was introduced less than a month ago, its “hot” version we’ll see, probably closer to the spring of next year. The Geneva Motor Show, which takes place in March, might well be suitable for this.
