, Audi increased the power by 27hp to a total of 367hp. The torque also increased to 465Nm. The brand states that to achieve this increase in performance, it improved cooling capacity and optimized the fuel pump. Thanks to these changes the RS Q3 Performance is 0.4s faster than the standard version to reach the 100 km/h mark (4.4s), which is only 0.1s slower than the current BMW M3M3BMW M3Germany, 2014 > present6 photos
. The speed is limited to 250km/h but by removing the speed limiter the RS ​​Q3 Performance can reach 270km/h.
Even with the increas in power and torque, Audi reveals surprisingly that the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions remain unchanged. Thus, the RS Q3 Performance has an average consumption of 8.6l/100km and CO2 emissions of 203g/km.
In addition to the changes in the engine, the RS Q3 Performance remains identical to the RS Q3. It uses the same seven-speed S tronic transmission and the quattro all-wheel drive system. For the two versions to be distinguished the RS Q3 Performance gets matte titanium trimming.
The world premiere of the RS Q3 Performance will take place at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
