Performance Cars: Audi RS3 Sportback

The Audi RS3 Sportback proves to be a great performance car for both the driver and its passengers. Not only can the car perform well from 0-62mph, but it can also transport your family from one place to another in a safe shell. In respect of the category of ‘performance cars’, it rivals many of its more expensive competitors and in the majority of cases, it actually has a lot more to offer.

The car’s power is not one to be underestimated, and it provides a sleek design alongside a comfortable interior, which bodes well for all of its passengers. Some performance cars may have the tendency to worry about pulling power, or the ‘power to weight’ ratio. All the RS3 worries about however, is entertaining all of its passengers, whilst ensuring their safety.

From brand new, you can be looking at paying around £40,800 for the RS3 Sportback. That price tag includes a 2.5 litre engine, 364BHP, a 0-62mph time of 4.3 seconds, and an ‘S-tronic’ automatic gearbox which is extremely responsive to your movements and enables plenty of fun to be had (behind the wheel).

The RS3 does not compromise on speed, luxury, style, or design. It provides immense performance capabilities, whilst ensuring a smooth and steady ride on all terrains at all times.

Many people have also commented on the exhaust sound of the RS3, it’s one that simply sings beautiful symphonies to one’s ears and many say it’s incredibly hard to rival.

Insurance for an Audi RS3 Sportback

The RS3 is ranked as 40 out of 50 in terms of insurance group ratings. Yes, this is at the higher end of the spectrum, but providing you have the right level of cover in place, and are a sensible driver with full NCB and no points etc. you should still be able to obtain a reasonable quote. A ‘Performance Car Insurance’ policy will also help to ensure all the valuable assets of the car are covered to their full and true value.
