Review

The Audi RS3 isn’t the sharpest driving machine, but few hot hatches can match its all-weather pace and high quality interior. It’s also ridiculously rapid with an addictive exhaust note that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The only real issue is the frustrating automatic gearbox brought about by a 2019 facelift.
