Currently on display at the Geneva Motor Show, the 2017 Audi RS3 Sportback now uses the same engine as the Sedan and TT-RS and therefore delivers an equal 400 PS (395 hp) and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque between 1,700 rpm and 5,850 rpm.

When mated to a swift shifting S-tronic seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel drive, the new RS3 Sportback accelerates from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in a brisk 4.1 seconds and hits an electronically-limited 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed.
