The 2.5 TFSI is not just an engine but a promise. The top speed can be optionally raised to 280 km/h. The unique sound of the 5-cylinder engine amplifies the emotional driving experience. The RS Sport exhaust system now standard contributes to the deep engine grunt. The lightning-fast, seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic transmission directs the forces to the permanent quattro all-wheel drive. With 294 kW , the engine achieves 24kW more than its predecessor and is 26 kg lighter thanks to, among other things, its aluminum crankcase. Thus, the RS 3 Sportback sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds. The maximum torque of 480 Nm is between 1,700 and 5,850 rpm and ensures exceptional engine power over a very wide speed range.
