Earlier the company announced that it is planning for transitions to all-electric powertrains by 2033. For this purpose, Audi is going to cease the development of all new internal-combustion engines. This renovation was the silent goalpost for the company.

Amazing features of The RS3

The RS3 has 401 horsepower along with five-pot pulls hard to its 7000-rpm redline. This engine has a delightfully vocal and charismatic character which is an understatement.

This new active exhaust engine of Audi delivers aural drama through the tailpipes. Usually, engine-sound augmentation can be eschewed through stereo speakers. But in the RS3 case, it only adds to the excitement. Whether the windows are up or down you will search for tunnels on your daily commute while using this model of Audi.

What does make Audi’s RS3 unique?

The 2017 model of RS3 posted a 3.5-second run to 60 mph. However, the newly designed car has to drop down a gear with just a touch of the accelerator. It is offering a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission feature. Users also can enjoy several shift programs including launch control. However, you may feel that it is not as prescient while heavy braking into corners. You may need steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles to kick it down a ratio.

Through the various drive modes, you can change the gearbox’s demeanor and can feel greater control of the engine’s responsiveness. The efficiency settings allow the best comfort for the passengers. The all-wheel-drive system suits all the parameters based on our driving habits.
