Take one look at the RS3, from its large front air intakes to the massive tailpipes, and you know it’s ready to rock. With a 400-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder under the hood, this 10Best Cars winner has the muscle to back up its menacing appearance. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic routes torque to all four wheels; in our testing, the RS3 hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. It boasts a redline of 6900 rpm, and the rip of its distinctive exhaust note sounds amazing the whole way there.
The takeaway from all this fettling is one of the most entertaining Audis on the road. The RS3 may be highly refined and steely cool in its luxury presentation, but its quick and responsive helm, overall agility, and charismatic engine make it plenty capable of goading its driver into bad behavior. While it has the securely planted feel we expect from a car wearing a Quattro badge, the RS3’s wider nose and extra cornering bite let it rotate with enthusiasm and pull off playful little slides when its electronic watchdogs are dialed back.
We would probably save the money and pass on the firmer sport suspension if we regularly traversed cratered roads like those in Michigan, which can make the car’s ride rather taut and choppy. But even the Audi’s fully starched setup is notably more compliant than those from AMG or BMW. We’d also probably choose a humbler paint color than our test car’s orangeish Catalunya Red Metallic ($575), which negates the stealthiness of the RS3’s anabolic-jellybean shape in traffic. More annoying was the low-speed squeaking of the optional carbon brakes, as well as a back seat that’s sure to elicit complaints from adult-size occupants.
