Default New Audi RS3 Getting More Power And The 2021 VW Golf R's AWD System?

Quote:
Audi RS 3 (2021) again with five-cylinder turbo
By Katharina Berndt

Ever since the presentation of the new A3, everything has actually been waiting for the most powerful variant - the RS 3. When it comes to performance, Audi will not spoil it. It stays with the five-cylinder turbo. Frank Michel, Head of Sales and Marketing at Audi Sport, let this shine through to Auto Express. The 2.5-liter engine with 420 HP and 500 Nm could increase 20 HP and 20 Nm respectively compared to its predecessor. A seven-speed DSG is still used for shifting. For the standard sprint, the three could come before the decimal point.

The RS 3 currently needs 4.1 seconds to run from zero to 100 km / h. The top speed should continue to be - electronically limited - at 250 km / h and be increased to 280 km / h for an extra charge. There is also speculation about whether the RS 3 will get a new all-wheel drive system from VW. More precisely that from the Golf 8 R and Tiguan R. There, the rear axle drive distributes the torque not only between the front and rear axles, but also between the rear wheels.

Visually much more aggressive than the base

Visually, Audi should also go a step further with the compact sports car and design it extra wickedly. Reason enough for the AUTO BILD draftsman to create an illustration of the RS 3 based on ErlkŲnigen. The front should have significantly larger air inlets and a frameless single-frame grill like the RS Q3. In addition, the Sport-A3 gets much wider fenders, which makes it look beefier. The roof edge spoiler at the rear is also growing and, like the other RS ***8203;***8203;models, is shaped more so that a central indentation is created. The color of the taillights is also based on RS 6 and Co: The glass is a tad darker than the regular model. A real eye-catcher should be the new apron with an embedded diffuser and two large oval tailpipes.

Market launch and price

Audi is likely to present the new RS 3 in autumn 2021, and it could be available at dealerships by the end of the year. In terms of price, the power compact will probably cost a little less than 60,000 euros, in the base.

I think the RS3 is probably my closest to ideal every day car.

Agreed Professor. Just can't bring myself to that transverse layout with the Haldex system. Miss the smaller packaging of the B5 A4.

the current 3 hatchback is gorgeous... so disappointing that we'll never get it.

Me too. I think the A4 is a much better platform than the Sedan-Golf-Haldex A3, but it's just so big now.

Modern cars and my preferences seem to be diverging, so a perfect fit is too much to ask.

O/T let's see what Acura offers with it's new sedan. If it comes with AWD I may be sold on it, if it comes with DWS/AWD and Manual I will definitely be sold.

The 5-cylinder engine is the best and worst thing about this car. Best in that it's a great engine and makes the car very fast in a straight line. Worst in that the added weight over the front axle makes the car an understeering pig even with staggered setup.

The new Acura looks nice but itís a class bigger than what I need. I really hope that Acura offers an ILX Type S with the civic type R engine and AWD at some point. That would get my attention.

With the Golf R getting more front camber, I expect the RS will get more front camber? That should help a bit.

Acura announced a new small sedan coming already, not called ILX. Maybe Integra. Hopefully it's not just a 1.5L FWD 10th gen with nicer leather.

That's what I am meant. There is a "new" smaller sedan that Acura will be adding to their lineup. Smaller than the, massively huge exterior and insanely cramped interior, new 2021 TLX.
