AUDI statements it invented the “Premium Compact Large-Efficiency SUV” specialized niche with its to start with-ever RS Q3, which launched in Australia back again in early 2014. And there’s no doubting the success of this functionality flagship, viewing about 500 of them uncovered households here in excess of the subsequent 5 years. 

 

But the aged RS Q3 was never ever rather all it could be. Riding on a circa-2003 system (the PQ35, a la Golfing Mk5/six) with an oddly undersized entire body and an without doubt oversized motor (Audi’s 2480cc iron-block 5-cylinder), the primary RS Q3’s equilibrium of powers did not rather unite to sort a strong bash. 

 

But 2nd time about, the new-era RS Q3 knows exactly what it wants to be – as functional as any SUV in just earshot of its sizing and price tag, backed by not only bahn-storming functionality but also chopping-edge dynamics and a conventional products checklist with additional highlights than a Schitt’s Creek demonstrate-reel. 

 

All for a price tag that’s only marginally northwards of what a 2014 RS Q3 price tag when new.

 

In rapid SUV terms, it not only appears promising, it is promising.
