What will be the new Audi RS3 Sportback?March 10, 2020
Artists presented their vision of how the updated competitor will look like a high-performance Mercedes-AM A45. The date of the official presentation is still a mystery.
Audi introduced the fourth-generation A3 Sportback almost a week ago, and we have already seen the rendering of the new sedan. Now we have a computer image of the high-performance RS3 Sportback. According to the creators of this render, the official images of the chic new-generation compact five-door hatchback, as well as photos from the RS3 Sportback tests, were taken as the basis.
The virtual rival Mercedes-AMG A45 S has an even more aggressive appearance thanks to its large air intakes at the front and double oval tailpipes at the rear.
The artist added larger alloy wheels and reduced ground clearance for a more aggressive stance.
Despite the fact that the RS3 Sportback test prototype we saw at the end of January this year apparently did not have a horizontal bar above the false radiator grille – unless it was completely camouflaged, the serial version of the model will most likely have this part of the exterior. How so? In anticipation of the presentation of the new A3, Audi introduced the S3 model, and the “hot” hatchback had Quattro nostrils, so it would be wiser for the RS3 to take a similar look.
The updated RS3 Sportback has a 420-horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged engine under the hood – some insiders talk about 450 hp. Audi engineers will do everything possible so that a direct competitor from Mercedes-AMG (A45 S) with its 416 hp could not win.
