The Audi Q3 SUV is getting the RS treatment, more news has been shared across the web today regarding the model. Join us as we take a look at what we know so far.

Audi have made ripples in the motor industry today by revealing their new RS Audi Q3; the first ever SUV to get the RS treatment. Apparently this is upsetting to the big performance car fans out there, though we are sure they will get over it.

It shares its engine with the Audi TT RS; it is a 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which can offer an enticing 310hp and 310Ib ft of torque allowing it to do 0-62mph in 5.5 seconds and hit speeds of 155mph.

The rear axle features an ‘electronically controlled multi-plate clutch’ which will share out torque between the front and rear to make sure the car performs in all weather conditions. Audi reckons the RS Q3 is capable of 32.1mpg combined with 206g/km CO2 emissions, which is pretty good for an RS model.

The RS Q3’s servicing and MOT prices shouldn’t stack up to heavily so it should be a relatively inexpensive car to own (considering its performance figures).
