AUDI claims it invented the “Premium Compact Large-Effectiveness SUV” specialized niche with its first-at any time RS Q3, which released in Australia again in early 2014. And there’s no doubting the accomplishment of this overall performance flagship, looking at all-around 500 of them discovered residences below around the following five yrs.
But the aged RS Q3 was hardly ever rather all it could be. Driving on a circa-2003 system (the PQ35, a la Golfing Mk5/6) with an oddly undersized entire body and an certainly oversized motor (Audi’s 2480cc iron-block five-cylinder), the primary RS Q3’s stability of powers didn’t rather unite to type a powerful get together.
But 2nd time all-around, the new-generation RS Q3 is aware of just what it requires to be – as functional as any SUV within earshot of its size and price, backed by not only bahn-storming overall performance but also chopping-edge dynamics and a regular devices record with more highlights than a Schitt’s Creek demonstrate-reel.
All for a price that is only marginally northwards of what a 2014 RS Q3 charge when new.
In quick SUV phrases, it not only sounds promising, it is promising.
