2014 Audi RS Q3 is the TT-RS of Crossovers

The newest addition to Audi’s high-performance RS line has just been unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in the form of the 2014 RS Q3. 

Under the hood of the hopped up crossover lives a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that makes 310 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Audi says that it will be able to achieve 26.73 mpg, along with being able to sprint 62 mph in 5.5 seconds. Power will be routed through a standard seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission that directs power to all four wheels via the brand’s quattro all-wheel drive system.

To compliment the added power, the RS Q3 sits about an inch lower than the standard Q3, and gets stiffer suspension, vented and perforated front brake discs along with eight-piston calipers.


On the inside, the RS Q3 gets bolstered sport seats complete with RS stitching and aluminum accents throughout the cabin.

The Audi Q3 will be making its way to our shores sometime in late 2013 or early 2014, though availability of an Audi RS Q3 here in America is still unknown.
