The second generation version of Audi's devastating RS3 Sportback launched in 2015 featured the most powerful production five-cylinder engine in Ingolstadt's history. The result was a super hatch that aimed to rewrite the shopping rocket rulebook. It's very, very fast, very, very usable and very, very rare.
Audi will tell you that its 'RS' - or 'Racing Sport' - brand is about 'innovation, technology and performance'. Its customers though, have told the Ingolstadt maker that they want more than that. Future RS products must also feature three other attributes - soul, involvement and emotion. The original version of the RS3 came up a little short in these three areas: this second generation model though, nailed them more effectively.
Certainly, there are other high performance hot hatches from the 2015 to 2017 era that might make your heart beat a little faster: this particular 376PS RS3 still trades the last couple of percentage points of focus for genuine everyday utility. But it's also true that while that might make it a couple of seconds slower around the Nurburgring, it also makes it a better car for the vast majority of customers. People who live in the real world. A very fast world indeed.
