The previous generation RSQ3 was a bit of an oddball but won praise for being a surprisingly good steer – well, Audi isn’t taking any chances with this latest generation because it has been seriously upgraded in every area. The styling of the latest Q3 is already fantastic, far more boxy and stylish than the Q5, but with the RS treatment, it looks seriously aggressive. And now, with the Sportback variant, they've created a mini-Urus! The sloping roofline and robust rear arches look stylish and bold.
The now trademark RS honeycomb grille sits proudly up front, while massive intakes flank it in the bumper. Big alloys fill the arches, and there are the usual two oval pipes in the rear diffuser – speaking of which they should emit a rather tasty noise as this has the same 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine found in the TT-RS and RS3, producing 396bhp and 480Nm of torque. So not only is performance impressive, but you also get that lovely off-beat 5-pot warble that dates back to the Quattro rally cars of the ’80s.
Thankfully, the latest RSQ3 has grown slightly, too, so there’s now loads of room to go with that performance and the genuinely incredible interior that nobody does as well as Audi. This is the top-of-the-line Vorsprung model, too, with almost every option already ticked!
