Introducing the all-new Audi RS3!

Audi clearly has hot hatch class-leaders such as the AMG A45 S \u0026 Volkswagen Golf R in its sights! The question is, does the new RS3 have what it takes to become the number one, must-have hot hatch of 2021? It’s time to find out!

Well let’s start off with performance. Under the bonnet you’ll find a 2.5-litre 5 cylinder petrol, which is almost identical to the old model. However, that’s not exactly a bad thing! Sure, the power output of 400hp may be the same as the last gen, but it makes that 400hp across more of the rev range, so it’ll feel faster. It also produces more torque, at 500Nm.

What's more, once you take a seat inside, you’ll be treated to a high-quality, gorgeous interior. With red or green stitching throughout, coupled with lots of carbon trim and soft-touch leather, the interior can easily match what you’ll find in the A45 S \u0026 Golf R.

So what do you think, is the RS3 the hot hatch to beat in 2021? Stick with Mat and see what you think!

I love the look and performance of the new RS3 but what are Audi playing at with the fake oval tail pipes. Come on chaps, a car like this deserves a proper beefy exhaust not one that’s got two pipes hiding inside the oval end jobby.

If you would pick an a45s instead of the new rs3 you deserve a spanking. The rs3 looks way better inside and out, sounds way better, and is faster as well. Even though the rs3 has 20 less horsepower on paper, we know if you would put them on a dyno it would be equal. Audi is modest in their factory claims, while mercedes likes to exaggerate.
uptheduffagain Ditë më parë
Looks are subjective. As for the performance,all we have to go by is some figures on paper,which count for nothing. For what it is worth,we have seen 0-60 in 3.6s in our A45S,and that is real world figures,not on paper. Also can I remind you that we are comparing a car with only a 2L 4 cylinder turbo,against a car that has 0.5L of extra displacement and an extra cylinder in order to get basically the same level of performance.

UUUUUUGGGGGGGGLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYY!!!!!!! Looks like a 12 year old designed it. Also, £50,000 for an Audi???? Certainly not worth more than £30,000. Ah, but of course - no one will pay that over dreadfully over-inflated price as most 20 year olds just rent them out on the never never.

The design looks cheap and over-done. If I’d buy one my next idea would be how to make it look like decent car. I’d probably repaint the grille and the tacky fake plastic applications. They’re so yuk
jbm0866 3 ditë më parë
Normally this would be the sort of thing that I'd be excited about, but it just seems like yet another swan song before the party is (legislated to be) over. The next couple years carmakers will be emptying their parts bins of anything they've been holding back, then the point of no return begins...a future with glorified golf carts. Sure some of them will be blisteringly quick in a straight line, (for those lucky few who have an un-policed drag strip along their work commute) but the vast majority of affordable EV's will be far more focused on range and interior tech bits. To me EV's seem like a temporary thing at best since China controls most of the worlds supply of rare earth minerals...long term the ruling class wants everyone on government controlled public transit. Sigh...this RS3 is tasty though, and doesnt look as boring as other recent Audi models.
jbm0866 2 ditë më parë
@Garo Sama and US and European auto industries find themselves out in the cold by 2040, making high end/low volume EV's the 98% can't really afford, conceding the mass market to China. No idea if Japanese/Korean makes can survive if China really gets aggressive in cornering the market.
Garo Sama
Garo Sama 2 ditë më parë
Well, the EV trend comes mostly from China, its the best thing that could happen to the chinese, since they can finally completely take over the car industries as well
KING SISQO 3 ditë më parë
Rs3 better looking but nothing is better than a Mercedes inside. I think the drift mode was “forced”. They had to with the amg being faster and a drift mode. There’s be no reason to pick it. They also cleverly added more torque with the same power to achieve a faster 0-60 time. If that’s all they’ve done then the a45s should still be faster after then. But if the rs3 doesn’t allow that then the power “claimed” is more than stated.
KING SISQO 2 ditë më parë
@Steve Cooper lol maybe on wet a bit like the golf r. But that’s what I mean it needed something else to help feel like it wasn’t behind since it was down on power. I’m not in any position to buy any. But I’m very interested to see the race as much as the fan boys.
Steve Cooper
Steve Cooper 2 ditë më parë
@KING SISQO yes I think A45 is better inside but RS3 better outside too, I really don’t get the drifting, it’s a Quattro it’s not meant to move around 🙈 I don’t believe it can drift anyway, maybe on a very wet race circuit
KING SISQO 2 ditë më parë
@Steve Cooper I’m an rs3 fan. But I’m a little unsure about your statement. Doubt it’ll “kick its arse”. Be close. Not much but I’d need to see both perform. But I defo prefer inside the a45
