Based on what Audi has revealed so far, it looks like the Audi RS3 will only be getting a slight powertrain upgrade but that is not the whole story at all.
The 2017 Audi RS3 will be coming with a 2.5 liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine that will be delivering about 395hp and 480Nm of torque. While the jump might look small, the upgrade is actually a lot bigger than we think.
Not only will the upgraded engine deliver more now but it will also be 57,3 pounds lighter than the previous engine thanks to the aluminum used in the place of the compacted graphite iron.
Thanks to all that upgrades, the Audi RS3 will be able to go from 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds with the dual-clutch S-Tonic seven-speed transmission. It will also have a top speed of 155mph.
They also made some necessary changes to the suspension fo the Audi RS3.
