Before you – the first pictures of the prototype of the new generation 2018-2019 Audi RS3 . Previous versions of this popular model ever so early did not get into Photospies lenses. It is possible that 2018-2019 Audi marketers specially leaked in advance to prepare for potential buyers of machines designed for the US market. But the reason may be different: may, 2018-2019 Audi pre-prepared to compete with cars of this class – Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG and the new version of the BMW the M2 .
A prototype RS 3 Sportback was created based on the 5-door the A3 Sportback . We assume that cars will eventually receive and stuffing on A3 sedan. The car is likely to be equipped with a 5-cylinder turbocharged engine, drive Quattro all-wheel drive and get a sport suspension.
In the first photo we see a sports prototype RS 3 with an aggressive front bumper, and a lowered suspension. Photographers say that the machine upgraded brakes and oval exhaust pipes and that it is slightly wider than the A3 Sportback.
It is expected that the new RS 3 will get extra power at the expense of the 5-cylinder turbo engine capacity of 2.5 liters. The most powerful powerplant will “give out” 360 hp But the company claimed that this engine has even greater potential.
At the same time, 2018-2019 Audi engineers have demonstrated a new and upgraded version of the engine TFSI, which may be installed on the new models S3 and TT 2016. This engine produces 420 horses already. So it is possible that it also can be seen in the RS3 Sportback. Most likely, this engine will be aggregated with the 7-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch.
It is expected that the new RS 3 Sportback will be presented to the public or at the end of this or early next, . It is planned that the RS 3 sedan will appear in about a year after the market will hatch.
