AUDI promises it invented the “Premium Compact Significant-General performance SUV” market with its first-at any time RS Q3, which introduced in Australia back in early 2014. And there is no doubting the accomplishment of this efficiency flagship, observing all around five hundred of them found residences listed here more than the subsequent 5 yrs.
But the aged RS Q3 was never ever very all it could be. Riding on a circa-2003 system (the PQ35, a la Golfing Mk5/6) with an oddly undersized system and an without doubt oversized motor (Audi’s 2480cc iron-block 5-cylinder), the original RS Q3’s harmony of powers didn’t very unite to variety a powerful party.
But 2nd time all around, the new-technology RS Q3 is familiar with specifically what it demands to be – as useful as any SUV in earshot of its dimensions and rate, backed by not only bahn-storming efficiency but also chopping-edge dynamics and a standard devices list with extra highlights than a Schitt’s Creek display-reel.
All for a rate that is only marginally northwards of what a 2014 RS Q3 charge when new.
In rapidly SUV phrases, it not only seems promising, it is promising.
