The 2014 Audi Q3 RS is the ideal crossover, as well as luxurious touring car for people who want to maximize on fuel economy. The main distinction between this new model and the previous Q3 line of cars is that it is a less-muscular variation offering impressive acceleration – the RS takes 5.5 seconds to hit 0 – 62 mph, and has a top speed of 155 mph. With its powerful engine capable of generating 310 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, the all-new Audi Q3 RS can achieve significantly higher speeds than most other cars in the lineup. The new car is slated to be released in Geneva and will cost approximately €44,225 ($59,000) for the base model.
2014 Audi Q3 RS Power and Handling
The RS Q3 comes with an upgraded chassis that can handle the extra power. Unlike the standard Q3s, the RS’s sports suspension is an inch lower. In order to improve weight distribution, Audi saw it fit to move the battery underneath the cargo floor. The all-new Q3 RS offers various options, with regard to the engine and wheel choices. The engine options include the base 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, 1.6-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine, and 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. All the engine variants come with a 7-speed automatic transmission i.e. the DQ500 7-speed dual-clutch unit from Audi. On the other hand, all variants come with all-wheel drive. The detuned engine is likely to allow for future improvements.
