It’s yet to be determined whether Canada will be getting the “Sportback” (a.k.a. wagon) model I drove in Austria this summer, but we are getting the RS3 in sedan form, and that is a very good thing. Powered by the same 2.5L five-cylinder turbo as the TT RS, and developing 367 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque, the RS3 pulls hard and sounds like the business. Quattro all-wheel-drive, Audi’s S tronic seven-speed transmission and a kick-ass sporty interior with superbly bolstered seats means this is a driver’s car through and through. Like the Golf R variant, be sure to call out Audi Canada on bringing the wagon over so you can have your cake and eat it too.
