What used Audi RS3 hatchback will I get for my budget?
About £28,000 represents the kicking-off point for putting a good RS3 on your driveway. This will buy you a 2015 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, which we’d say is essential. Post-facelift 2017 models will still cost you around £35,000, all satisfying the same criteria as above, and you can spend up to £40,000 on a nearly new car from a franchised dealer.
How much does it cost to run a Audi RS3 hatchback?
The official figure for the later, more powerful RS3’s fuel consumption is an average 34mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 188g/km, and those cars registered before April 2017 will pay annual car tax based on that, so expect reasonably large bills. Those registered after that date will pay the current flat rate charge of £140 a year, plus a supplementary luxury car tax of £340 a year for cars costing over £40,000. Expect insurance costs to be hefty, too, as it sits in a high group 46, and servicing costs likewise, especially if done at an Audi dealer, which we would recommend.
