The newly introduced model has more generous exterior dimensions than the car it replaces, along with a new design inside and out, technologies, engines and even platform, in an attempt to grab a good chunk of sales in the premium subcompact crossover segment.
Development of the new Audi Q3 hasn’t ended yet, as the automaker is also working on two high-performance versions: the ‘S’ and ‘RS’. And it’s the latter that was imagined by XTomi with a new grille, reworked bumpers and side skirts, black accents, RS badges, lower ground clearance and larger wheels.
For power, Audi Sport is rumored to employ the use of the turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine from the RS3 Sportback. In the compact hot hatch, the unit generates 400PS (394hp / 294kW) and 480Nm (354lb-ft) of torque, and it could very well produce the same output in the upcoming RS Q3.
If true, it’s expected to complete the zero to 100km/h (0-62mph) run in around 4.5 seconds, and hit a top speed electronically limited at 250km/h (155mph) or 270km/h (167mph).
