Undoubtedly, the most powerful hyper-hatch on sale right now is the Audi RS3 which is a raspy 5-cylinder 2.5 liter turbo-charged engine that puts out a strong 362hp and 465Nm of torque that would make you question the very element of sports cars that have an extra boot that drags along. Plenty powerful from the get-go this hot-hatch offers spine-bending performance that a lot of sports cars cannot match. It is now 55 kilos lesser than its predecessor and offers 27 more horses, this throaty car is quicker than before with 0-100kmph come at 4.3 seconds which by the way is three-tenths faster than the mighty Mercedes A45 AMG.
The RS3 is ballistic on a straight line with a raspy exhaust note and launch control to fire it forward. The torque is healthy enough to put down power whenever the throttle is pinned despite the gears and the optional sports exhaust makes things sound more fantastic. The RS3 comes with a seven-speed dual clutch S-tronic gearbox which is the only option available and it is lightning quick through the ratios in the up and downshifts. You get fixed rate and adaptive dampers as options on this car depending on the choice made.
Torque vectoring makes the car stick to the ground the harder you push it by changing the way the power is put on the four wheels. Driving this car on the road is like point and shoot as any trip is rapidly finished with exceeding fun and engagement. The car’s interiors also look sporty with comfortable seats to hold you while driving to the limit. The engine is full of character and it adds personality to this car making it a desirable choice despite strong competition like the Ford Focus RS and the Mercedes A45 AMG.
