Audi has unveiled yet another model that won't be offered in the United States - the RS Q3 Performance. The new "Performance" version adds more power, an upgraded suspension and a few new styling bits to the RS Q3, which also isn't offered here.
The RS Q3 Performance is powered by a turbocharged 2.5L five-cylinder engine that generates 367-hp compared to 340 in the standard RS Q3. The RS Q3 Performance reaches 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 167 mph. Those specs are an improvement over the standard RS Q3 with its 0-62 mph time of 4.8 seconds and top speed of only 155 mph.
In addition to the upgraded powertrain, the RS Q3 Performance also gets a new suspension that lowers it 20 millimeters lower than a standard Q3. Drivers can also adjust the suspension's settings via Audi's Drive Select system.
To help differentiate it from the other Q3 models, the RS Q3 Performance has matte titanium accents on the grille, air intakes and side window trim strips. A matte titanium finish is also available for the 20-inch wheels.
The RS Q3 Performance is going to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
