We are sure that the debut will take place next year. And now we can consider the “charged” hatchback in the new version thanks to a series of photographs. As expected, the model will be similar to the new versions of the “classic” sedans and hatchbacks Audi A3 and S3.

Audi has launched an updated version of the “charged” hatchback RS 3 Sportback for road trials. The test prototype is still under tight camouflage, covering some design details. However, even he is not able to hide corporate elements of corporate design. In the front, there is a bumper with a huge grille and massive air intakes, as well as new head optics and sensors with a radar.

 It is worth recognizing that the design of the model is more evolutionary than revolutionary. In other words, we see the development of the previous idea, but radically new solutions do not have to wait. RS 3 takes the best decisions from the younger versions, and remakes them in a more aggressive style.

 As a power unit, a 2.5-liter turbo engine with five cylinders can be used. Its capacity will be about 400 horsepower. Almost certainly paired with him will be a seven-speed robotic transmission with dual clutch, as well as a proprietary all-wheel drive system.

So far, the company has not made an official announcement about the date of the presentation. Most likely, the debut will take place in the spring of 2020 in Geneva. Sales will also begin next year, but the Audi RS 3 hatchback may remain the prerogative of the European market only.

Meanwhile, Audi is recalling the Q5 crossover due to problems with the fender liners. The current generation of the Audi Q5, assembled at a company in Mexico, may lose the decorative finish of the wheel arch.
