The 2017 Audi RS Q3 Performance is an upgrade to its older sibling, the Audi RS Q3, which critics found lacking in power. The RS Q3’s membership of the RS performance family was called into question for this reason. But it looks like Audi has fixed it with this third member of the family.
This time, Audi seems to have gotten it right with a turbo-charged 2.5-litre 5-cylinder engine, 7-speed transmission, permanent and quattro four wheel drive. The delivers 250 kW – enough power to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds. Not bad. That is more power and speed compared to its predecessor.

If a sporty, compact power horse of this sort is something you fancy, the RS Q3 Performance sells for $84,000. Yes, it costs a little more than the RS Q3, but the performance difference should be worth every dollar. No pun intended.
