• Two extremely sporty Q models added to the product portfolio in Győr
• Zoltán Les, board member in charge of vehicle manufacturing: “We have expanded our competencies in the production of RS models”
• Outstanding performance thanks to the even-more-powerful 2.5 TFSI engine
Győr, 30 September 2019 – Just like in a race: the Audi RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback models are lined up at the starting line at Audi Hungaria. The two sport compacts offer outstanding performance, athletic design, and maximum everyday usability, while the legendary five-cylinder engine from Győr ensures a special sound and driving experience.
“The revamped Audi RS Q3 is a breathtaking, while the Audi RS Q3 Sportback is a new, wholly captivating model added to the Audi product portfolio,” said Zoltán Les, board member in charge of vehicle manufacturing at Audi Hungaria. “We are now producing 12 variants of five basic models in Győr. This level of complexity requires a high degree of accuracy, flexibility and the highest level of expertise from our employees. I am very proud of our team who have once again implemented the start-up of two new models successfully.”
The Audi RS Q3 and the Audi RS Q3 Sportback are synonymous with outstanding power and performance. This is also reflected in the design of the models: the Singleframe with no colour-contrasting surround in the compact SUV creates an even sharper impression. The gloss black grill with three-dimensional honeycomb structure is inset deeper and directly into the RS bumper with its large side air inlets. The striking boomerang-shaped blades in the bumper are designed exclusively for the RS Q3. The RS genes are also apparent in the flat slits above the Singleframe radiator grill.
Within the Audi Q3 family, the RS Q3 and the RS Q3 Sportback represent the sporty spearhead. The performance figures for the compact engines are compelling: five cylinders, a power output of 294 kW (400 metric hp), 480 Nm of torque, quattro all-wheel drive. The five-cylinder engine is a veritable modern classic. The 2.5 TFSI engine, which is produced at Audi Hungaria, received the sought-after “International Engine of the Year Award” for the ninth consecutive time last year.
The multi-award-winning five-cylinder engine gains a good 17 per cent more power at an unchanged displacement of 2,480 cc. The engine’s maximum torque is available over the very broad rev range between 1,950 and 5,850 rpm. The RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. The top speed is regulated at 250 km/h or an optional 280 km/h.
1-2-4-5-3 – firing alternates between adjacent cylinders and those far apart from one another. The particular firing sequence and the odd number of cylinders make for a very special rhythm and unique engine sound. The dual-branch RS exhaust system underscores the characteristic sound of the five-cylinder firing sequence.
The RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback will be available at European dealerships beginning at the end of 2019.
