Audi RS Q3 Concept Debuts in Beijing

Audi is set to debut a new high-performance version of the Q3 crossover, the RS Q3 concept at the Beijing Motor Show later this month. The RS Q3 is powered by a 360 horsepower 2.5L five-cylinder engine mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission and Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system. The RS Q3 crossover reaches 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 165 mph.

The RS Q3 concept’s body has been lowered by almost an inch and it gets redesigned front and rear bumpers, a new black grille and tinted headlights. It also rides on 20-inch alloy wheels. The interior of the RS Q3 concept features black as its dominant color with contrasting dark blue Alcantara leather insets for the seats.


Audi hasn’t confirmed if the RS Q3 is destined for production, but at least the U.S. is set to receive the standard Q3.
