2019 Audi RS3 Makes Autocar's List of Best Super Sedans
Honestly, we're not surprised to see an Audi on a list like this. There just isn't really any denying the abilities of these machines.
Big things in little packages
The smaller sized RS model, one of the few sport models still for sale, is a high-performing standout in the market. The speedy sedan has all the power one could ask for while bearing aggressive styling that manages to fly under the radar. If you're in the market for a hot little number, then you're most likely looking at an RS3 or an M2 Competition Trim BMW.
With a new car right around the corner
The RS3 is new to the States but interestingly enough, the 4th generation of the A3 on which this car is based will reportedly hit dealerships later this year. The exterior of the RS3, like other sport models, gets unique front and rear bumpers plus side skirts and a diffuser.
Launch control engaged
Autocar states that Audi has given a 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds but they mention that they have clocked the car at less than 4 seconds. Given the smaller size of the Audi and the turbo 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine under the hood, it's no wonder that the RS3 has such performance prowess.
Of course there's quattro
There is one glaring issue that driving enthusiasts may have with the RS3: the car doesn't have a manual as an option. The only transmission on tap is a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. What is nice is that the RS3 comes with all-wheel-drive which makes putting the power down to the road much easier.
Best bang for your buck
Autocar concludes that if you want a very stable, easy-to-pilot 4-door rocket, then you have come to the right place.
