It’s Official: The 2018 Audi RS 3 is One of America’s Finest Sedans


Going into the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, our Audi dealers in Silver Spring, MD knew the 2018 Audi RS 3 was a special car. And that’s why, when this luxury high-performance sedan was named a 2018 Car and Driver 10 Best Car of the Year, we weren’t too surprised. Elated? Yes. Proud? Of course. But surprised? Not so much.

Even though the 2018 Audi RS 3 is Audi of America’s newest Audi Sport model, we had a hunch that greatness awaited. After all, this car’s sublime balance of functionality and class-topping performance is a combination seldom seen in any automobile, anywhere.

The Car & Driver 10 Best Award recognizes vehicles that deliver exceptional performance, excellence, and value, and every 2018 Audi RS 3 near College Park, MD is on the mark in all three categories. Car & Driver also cited this performance sedan for its robust structural design and its engaging behind-the-wheel experience. But when you consider the make-up of the all-new 2018 Audi RS 3 model’s powertrain, “engaging” is actually a big understatement:

-          All-aluminum 2.5-liter turbocharged 5C engine

-          Seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission

-          Capable of 400 horsepower and 354 lb.-ft. of torque

-          Engine sound is controllable via exhaust system flaps that open and close

-          0 - 60 in 3.9 seconds

-          Top track speed of 155 mph in “standard” form, or 174 mph with addition of the Dynamic Plus package (carbon-fiber engine     cover, fixed sport suspension, front ceramic brake rotors, individual tire pressure monitors)
