Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
One of the nicer cabins in this class,
turbo engine adds excitement,
satisfying ride-and-handling traits.

Cons
Cargo area is tight,
worse fuel economy than many competitors,
turbo engine limited to priciest model.

Pros
Plenty of tech on board
Smooth hybrid system
Nice cabin quality

Cons
Fiddly climate controls
Slightly firm ride
Front-end styling is divisive

The 2019 Audi RS 3 comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.Minor adjustments to package features.Fixed sport suspension now available as stand-alone option.

Pros
Potent acceleration and heaps of traction
Well-trimmed cabin
Enough practicality to serve everyday use
Attractive, easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Snug back seat and small cargo area
Ride quality might be too firm for casual drivers
Front seats sit too high for tall occupants
Some driver assistance systems, such as adaptive cruise, are optional

Overall, an excellent car, even considering the high price given the size. It has a well-rounded set of features, and when performance is taken into account, some would even argue that it is good value for money. Definitely well worth a drive!

pros
Excellent power and performance;
Five-cylinder exhaust sound is unique;
Interior fit and finish typical high Audi quality;
Chuckability around tight roads;
Sharp looks both inside and out

Cons
Turbo lag (which may be a pro for some!);
Transmission logic in Comfort mode;
Software bugs in engine and transmission control units;
Lack of electric seat adjustability;
No puddle lights

Pros
Awesome turbo five-cylinder,
planted yet playful chassis,
lovely cabin.

Cons
More engine noise please,
big price for a small car,
cramped back seat.
