A0-100kmph sprint in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 290kmph sets the 2022 Audi RS 3 apart from the rest of the lot. Revealed for the European market, the 2022 Audi RS 3 is the high-performance version of the Audi A3 and comes loaded with everything the RS badge has to offer and more. For example, the new RS 3 now gets a new torque splitter, a first for Audi, which ensures the right amount of torque is optimally distributed along the rear axle and makes controlled drifts possible. Additionally, the Audi RS 3 also features newly developed shock absorbers for a better ride and newly developed six-piston steel brakes.

Up front, the 2022 Audi RS 3 features wide RS bumper, and redesigned Singleframe with its distinctive honeycomb grille.

The design of the new Audi RS 3 is more dynamic and powerful than that of its predecessor. In the front, the wide RS bumper, the redesigned single frame with its distinctive honeycomb grille, and the large air intakes give the compact sports car an expressive appearance. The RS 3 comes standard-equipped with flat, wedge-shaped LED headlights and LED taillights, including dynamic turn signal lights. There is also a new design element behind the front wheel arches. The rocker panels with black trim have also been redesigned and, in combination with the flared wheel arches, contribute to the expressive look of the new RS 3. In addition, the front axle track has been widened by 33mm compared to the previous model. The RS 3 is standard-equipped with 19-inch cast wheels in a 10-Y spoke design. Audi will also mount Pirelli P Zero “Trofeo R” performance semi-slick tires for the first time. The motorsports-inspired finishing touches include the redesigned RS-specific rear bumper with integrated diffuser and the RS exhaust system with two large oval tailpipes.

In the interior, too, many elements specific to the RS accentuate its sportiness.

In addition, the Audi virtual cockpit plus includes displays for g-forces, lap times and acceleration from 0100kmph, 0-200kmph, quarter-mile, and eighth of a mile. The RS-specific blinking shift indicator in manual transmission mode changes the rpm display from green to yellow to red to indicate the ideal time to change gears. The 10.1-inch touch display includes what is referred to as the “RS Monitor,” which displays the coolant, engine, and transmission oil temperatures as well as tire pressures. Also available for the first time for the Audi RS 3 is a head-up display. The seat upholstery is optionally available in fine Nappa leather seating surfaces with RS honeycomb stitching and glossy black, red, or, for the first time, green contrast stitching. The Design Package includes seat corners in red or green and coloured accents on the air vents. The RS 3 is standard-equipped with a three-spoke RS Sport multifunctional leather-wrapped steering wheel with a flattened bottom.
