Behind the Wheel
With 400 horsepower on tap and a quick-shifting gearbox, the RS 3 is an absolute joy to drive. Throttle response is instantaneous, resulting in very quick acceleration. Audi claims this little car will sprint to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, and there is little evidence to suggest otherwise. When the road gets curvy, the smiles simply get wider. With Dynamic mode, shifts are quick and on point, steering is crisp and responsive, and the all-wheel drive combined with the stability control system keep things in line without being intrusive.
