Default Official: Audi RS Q3 gets snarlier, hits 62 mph in 4.8 seconds [w/video]

Filed under: Performance, Crossover, Audi, Luxury



Well, that was quick. A mere 20 months after its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Audi has issued a fairly significant update to its RS Q3 crossover. A light exterior refresh - the most noticeable change is that the grille surround and headlights are now joined - belies more significant changes under the compact crossover's hood.

Power from the 2.5-liter, turbocharged five-cylinder has been boosted nicely from 310 horsepower to 340, while torque has jumped from 309 pound-feet to 332 lb-ft. The result of this extra thrust is that the tiny CUV can now scamper to 62 miles per hour in a seriously quick 4.8 seconds, rather than the original RS Q3's 5.5-second sprint. A new fifth-generation multi-plate clutch is fitted to the seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission, which Audi claims will now deliver even quicker shifts.

Lighter brake rotors with ridiculous eight-piston calipers in the front provide what we imagine is a lot of stopping power, while Audi continues to offer an optional adaptive damper system. 19-inch wheels are standard while 20s are optional.

European pricing for this tiny terror of a crossover start at 56,600 euros, which makes it slightly costlier than the 55,871-euro Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG, its most obvious rival. Scroll down for a brief video and the full press release from Audi.Continue reading Audi RS Q3 gets snarlier, hits 62 mph in 4.8 seconds [w/video]
