The Audi RS3 is one of the most envied cars in the Audi range - desired by many but owned by few. While on paper the RS3 isn't that much faster than an S3, it'd be naive to say they were anywhere near the same level. The model is only available as a five-door just like the Sportback it's based off and receives an upgrade to both interior and exterior styling, adding 'RS' styling to the upgraded leather seats and steering wheel along with wider (and louder) exhaust outlets and unique alloy wheels. Audi are one of our favourite brands here at All Car Leasing, they are well-known for producing well-built cars with cutting edge technology and luxury.

The Audi RS 3 is a family Saloon with a high-performance engine, based on the popular A3 Sportback. It's a stunning example of what can be done to a family car, it has striking styling with top tier specification and has been designed with blistering performance in mind. With a prominent rear wing and extra large twin exhausts, the RS3 is described as the everyday car with a not so everyday engine. Only available with a 2.5-litre petrol engine, it's the smallest RS model in the Audi range and sits at the very top of the hyper-hatch market.
The new Audi RS3 has been quoted by Audi to be able to achieve 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds and will feature RS sports suspension and RS braking system as standard. The 400bhp engine will be aided by a seven-speed dual-clutch S Tronic transmission and quattro four-wheel drive. You can view the full engine statistics in the table below:
|Engine Name||Fuel||Engine Size||Transmission||0-62||Horsepower||Top Speed||Combined MPG||CO2|
|2.5 TFSI Quattro S Tronic||Petrol||2.5L||7-Speed Automatic||4.1s||400bhp||155mph||34mpg||188g/km|
As well as that the RS3 will cost significantly less to lease than it would to buy due to high residual values expected meaning it will have lower monthly rentals and the initial payment will be a lot lower than a finance deposit.
Once you've had two or three years with this RS3, there will be another updated model to replace it, meaning that you can simply hand the old one back and start a new lease with a brand new RS3 down the line. Hassle and stress-free motoring in a brand new, top of the range Audi.
Compact saloons are not the most common body style at the moment but they are getting more popular as many feel a hatchback's boot space is not quite good enough anymore but they don't want the size of a larger saloon. The Audi Rs3 is one of a few compact saloons that we have on offer for larger families and for business use. Below are our recommendations for others to consider:
If our Audi Rs3 lease deals or our other recommended compact saloons don't quite float your boat then why not consider checking out our hatchback leasing page for something a little smaller, crossover page for something similar but a higher ride or SUV leasing page for something bigger. Alternatively, our car leasing special deals page has all of our latest offers for you.
