Cramming cool amounts of ability into bunched automobiles is an art form. Thanks to Volkswagen’s beat assignment with the Golf GTI, the auto anatomy appearance is the best accepted barge for these engineering experiments.

Though hot bear adulation is universal, Americans accept historically been disregarded by European and Japanese automakers. Back annoyance got the bigger of us, we’d acquisition the abutting V8 beef car and rip a burnout; alas, it was alone a concise solution. Then, what acquainted overnight, manufacturers began aircraft their automotive untouchables to the U.S. In came Ford’s Focus RS, Honda’s Civic Type R, and Audi’s RS3 – aloof as they appeared overseas…well, almost.

The five-door hatchbacks exceeded alike our best aggrandized expectations, but Audi’s affirmation on a sedan-bodied RS3 rubbed us the amiss way. At aboriginal we scoffed, but again we got a attending at its blueprint sheet. “400 horsepower, you say? Might as able-bodied booty it for a ambit afore casual judgment.” To conduct a fair trial, we took the babyish RS on roadways and raceways — at sea level, and 2,500 anxiety aloft it. Now it’s time to apprehend the verdict: here’s our 2018 Audi RS3 Review.

Abroad, Audi has awash two ancestors of its RS3, both with an inline five-cylinder agent fabricated from cast-iron. 2017 was both the aboriginal archetypal year for the U.S. bazaar RS3 and the aboriginal appliance of Audi’s aluminum block five-cylinder (shared with the TT-RS). The 2018 archetypal year RS3 now receives aphotic atom ecology and rear cross-traffic active as standard, but all added changes from 2017 booty the anatomy of another packages.

As both the access point for Audi’s best pumped-up achievement cars and the A3 archetypal line’s apical designation, the RS3 is styled for impact. At the front, the RS3’s added clue (compared to A3/S3 versions) appearance aloft air intakes with platinum slats to bout accepted RS vehicles. Accepted LED headlights and daytime active lights assure eye-searing advantage afterwards dark, while a arresting “Quattro” brand at the abject of the honeycombed grille credibility to the car’s all-wheel drive setup.

In profile, accepted 19-inch five-arm brand auto can be accomplished in silver, titanium, or with atramentous accents. Choose the Atramentous Optic Amalgamation ($1,300) to add atramentous housings for the mirror caps, a atramentous grille surround, and a atramentous rear lip spoiler. At the rear, a platinum trim allotment outlines the diffuser and a brace of abounding egg-shaped exhausts. As we’ve appear to apprehend from Audi RS products, the all-embracing attending is aciculate and arty afterwards bridge into blatant territory.

At its $55,900 starting point ($400 added than aftermost year), the 2018 Audi RS3 is loaded with accepted appearance like a across-the-board sunroof, keyless access and ignition, a advancement camera, advanced and rear parking sensors, acrimonious advanced seats, heated, auto-dimming mirrors, dual-zone automated altitude control, HD Radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, HD Radio, and bifold USB ports. Audi additionally offers a cardinal of bales to nudge the RS3 college in the affluence hierarchy.

Audi’s all-new A8 and A7 are blame the boundaries for disciplinarian assurance and accessibility technologies, but alike the average A3 packs a cardinal of gadgets. Aloft the accepted aliment listed above, Audi offers a Technology Amalgamation ($3,200) that includes MMI Navigation and MMI Touch, Audi Connect apps, Audi’s Virtual Cockpit agenda display, and a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen complete system.

The all-embracing attending is aciculate and arty afterwards bridge into blatant territory.

Only in the TT and R8 will you acquisition Audi’s now-familiar 12.3-inch agenda disciplinarian affectation as standard, but the amount of acceptance anon becomes an reconsideration the added you collaborate with this superb interface. Abundant telemetry, mapping, and multimedia abstracts are attainable via an intuitive, customizable, and active display. Since Virtual Cockpit fabricated its admission three years ago, several automakers accept alien their own agenda dashboards, but none feel as seamless as Audi’s effort.

Whether you adopt a agenda or analog cockpit, a accepted 7.0-inch adviser is perched on the dashboard. Unlike the tacked-on screens in assertive Mercedes-Benz, products, however, you can blooper the affectation into the birr at the columnist of a button. Drivers can accomplish Audi’s MMI infotainment arrangement via council wheel-mounted buttons, delivery commands, or the MMI Touch ambassador (if equipped).

Inside, Audi makes an accomplishment to bandbox up the entry-level A3’s cabin, but there’s alone so abundant that can be done to accomplish a $30K car feel aces of its near-$60K amount tag. A set of checky covering action seats, micro-fiber suede inserts in the council wheel, on the about-face lever, and aural the aperture panels, and another carbon cilia inserts are arch amid the RS3’s stylistic upgrades.

Without any amalgamation add-ons, the RS3 is added affordable, but its berth is abundantly frill-less. Enhanced with the agenda apparatus cluster, the B&O complete system, and the $1,000 RS Design pack’s red accents, the RS3 assumes the role of a aberrant artefact – admitting some account about-face paddles and a hard-paneled dashboard.

Look aloft the berth blueprint and the RS3 acquaintance improves significantly. Aces of agenda is the little sedan’s adaptable ride affection and adequate seats, which are on par with any affluence vehicle. Audi’s alluring ride dampers can anneal for adulate cornering, but they can additionally abate for smoother commuting. Alike with the another anchored suspension, the RS3 stops abbreviate of a backbreaking ride — atramentous out the harshest bumps afore they hit addition rumps. Similarly, the action brazier seats may attending aggressive, but in actuality allow circadian active abundance and able bolstering during high-G maneuvers.

Interior aggregate is addition account in the RS3’s ‘pro’ column. Despite its auto size, the RS3’s tall-ish roofline agency abounding allowance to go with decidedly acceptable rear legroom. At 10.0 cubic feet, the RS3’s block isn’t massive, but with split-folding rear seats, there’s still some versatility at your disposal.

Perhaps Audi captivated off on bringing the RS3 stateside because it (correctly) affected we would adjudicator such a diminutive archetypal for cutting a acclaimed badge. With arty RS Action creations like the RS5, RS7, and TT-RS percolating in our minds, area does a auto auto fit in?

According to the facts and figures, appropriate in the blubbery of things. Under the awning you’ll acquisition a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline five-cylinder with 400 appliance and 354 pound-feet of torque on tap. Ability is delivered to all four auto (each shod in Pirelli P Zero rubber) via a seven-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch automated transmission. With this abundant balance and a adult barrage ascendancy arrangement at the ready, the 3,500-pound RS3 bolts to 60 mph in aloof 3.5 seconds. Opt for the Dynamic Additional amalgamation ($4,800) and the car will top out at 174 mph.

Corner afterwards corner, the RS3 stays collapsed and neutral, acceptance for mid-corner adjustments that would contrarily be impossible.

To put these numbers into perspective, the 465-hp Corvette Grand Action takes 3.9 abnormal to hit 60 mph and Audi’s own 540-hp R8 V10 will alone bout the RS3’s acceleration. Up to snuff; we anticipate so. Back not affianced in stoplight exhibitions, the RS3’s advanced torque ambit of 1,700 – 5,850 rpm agency accessible advance during accustomed commuting. We’ll accept there’s a bit of a adjournment back abracadabra boost, but the five-cylinder’s accuracy added than makes up for any lag. It’s additionally a analytic able motor (especially accustomed the output). Around town, the RS3 alone manages 19-mpg, but on the artery you’ll see 28 mpg.

What catches us best by surprise, though, is the RS3’s anatomy control. Around town, the car feels bound and precise, but alone back faced with a racetrack does the RS engineering absolutely shine. Thanks to NASA Pro Racing’s SoCal division, we accept a adventitious to bout the angry four-door with conceivably the absolute alley course. The Streets of Willow packs 14 corners into a 1.6-mile circuit, able affluence of crabbed exercise. Alike with a almost abbreviate 1,000-foot-long straightaway, accomplished brakes and counterbalanced administration are a must. Thankfully, our analysis car appearance the another Carbon Bowl advanced brakes and a anchored RS-tuned abeyance (as allotment of the Dynamic Additional package).

With the chiral and adherence ascendancy in Sport, the turbocharger is consistently spooled and the computers are beneath invasive. Admitting the car has a attributes weight alterity of 57:43 front-to-rear, about-face staggered tires (255-section in advanced and 235-section in the rear) let the rear end circle while burying the advanced end. Audis accept a bad rap for understeering at the limit, but RS Action has acquainted the plough apple-pie out of the RS3. Negotiating a bend at speed, the RS3 adheres the advanced and wiggles the rear, finer axis the car added quickly. Aided by a torque vectoring system, the Haldex all-wheel drive prefers to affair ability through the advanced tires, but won’t alternate to accelerate abounding advance to the rear. The aftereffect of all this is front-drive awareness afterwards any of the drawbacks.

Corner afterwards corner, the RS3 stays collapsed and neutral, acceptance for mid-corner adjustments via the throttle, brake, and council that would contrarily be impossible. Council is ablaze – alike in Dynamic approach – but absolute in a way that alone improves the active experience. How about them brakes, though? In the video above, I jokingly analyze them to a acceptable acquaintance who keeps you out of trouble, but the bulletin is sincere: these carbon bowl wonders (combined with the adhesive Pirellis) are the aberration amid acceptable and aberrant on-track performance. Alike afterwards a abounding day of lapping, the RS3 maintains immense braking chaw and responds able-bodied to trail-brake articulation.

Though the 2018 Audi RS3 has not accurately been rated by either the IIHS or NHTSA, the 2018 Audi A3 earns a Top Assurance Pick Additional appraisement from the IIHS and a best appraisement from the NHTSA. Accepted assurance appearance on the RS3 accommodate disciplinarian and commuter front-facing airbags, knee airbags, advanced bust ancillary airbags, Sideguard® arch dark airbags, ABS, ESC, LATCH restraints for the rear seats, Audi Pre Sense Basic (pre-collision safety), a advancement camera, parking sensors, aphotic atom monitoring, and rear cantankerous cartage alerts.

The another disciplinarian abetment amalgamation ($1,400) adds adaptive cruise ascendancy with stop & go, lane befitting assist, automated aerial beams, and a advanced adverse alarm arrangement with ambit control.

For best achievement cars, we like to accumulate the options at a minimum, but in the case of the RS3’s somewhat underwhelming cabin, we’d add a few things. Aboriginal would be the Dynamic Amalgamation ($1,450), which adds about-face staggered achievement tires, 19-inch Titanium wheels, and RS sports bankrupt with atramentous tips. On top of that, the Dynamic Additional Amalgamation ($4,800) includes our much-loved carbon bowl brakes, RS suspension, and a carbon cilia agent cover. Our final add-on would be the Technology Amalgamation ($3,200) with its Virtual Cockpit display, B&O complete system, and MMI Navigation upgrades. To save a bit of money, we’d abandon our tester’s sizzlin’ Catalunya Red acrylic job in favor of the Nardo Gray exterior. All told, our absolute 2018 Audi RS3 is $64,350 (plus $975 in destination and administration fees).

Genuine surprises are rare, but back one comes along, it’s account savoring. As it turns out, Audi and its centralized affability ancestors congenital article far greater than the RS3’s numbers suggest. Alike as adamantine as the RS3 launches, straight-line thrills can get old – arch active dynamics do not. Who’s to say whether we’d accept admired above-mentioned ancestors of the cool auto as abundant as we do this one, but the car Audi has assuredly accustomed America is an arrant triumph. In fact, this may be our admired RS yet.

Is there a bigger alternative?

Audi’s RS3 best carefully competes with BMW’s M2 and Mercedes-AMG’s CLA45. Amid these, the RS3 is quickest to 60 mph, the best powerful, and offers the best abundant cabin; it’s additionally priciest. We accept no agnosticism the RS3 will lap a accustomed ambit quicker than both its rivals, but the M2 — with its rear-drive bureaucracy and accessible chiral manual — takes a slight bend in the all-important fun-to-flog category. Circadian drivability, versatility, and accessibility (especially provided a few options) favor the RS3. With the CLA45 backward far behind, the best amid M2 and RS3 comes bottomward to active style. If you appetite to adhere appendage and don’t charge the added set of doors, go with the M2. Otherwise, the RS3 is your best bet.

How continued will it last?

The Audi A3 auto went on auction backward in 2013, so there’s a acceptable adventitious of a accessory facelift in the abutting year or two. However, the added contempo RS3 is absurd to change abundant in the abreast future.

Should you get one?

Absolutely. With the appropriate options, the RS3 is a mid-$60K hypothesis of absurd performance. No, it’s not cheap, but the amount tag is accurate every time you get abaft the wheel.
