Introduction

What Car? says...

Now in its second generation, the Audi RS Q3 is what you get when you feed the German brand’s family SUV nothing but red meat and protein shakes, then force it to live in a gym. Like with its predecessor, muscle is provided by its 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine, which sends 395bhp to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Thanks to launch control, that’s enough power to slingshot the RS Q3 from 0-62mph in a mere 4.5sec and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. For the first time, there’s a choice of two body styles; you can either have the regular RS Q3 or the more rakish, if slightly less practical RS Q3 Sportback.
