So we got a 2016 Audi RS3 Quattro Sportback
How fast does a hot hatch need to be before it can be considered a real sports car? The Audi RS3 is now available in the UAE in limited numbers, and we got to answer that question ourselves.
The RS3 looks great in a subtle kind of way, with details you’d notice only on a closer look, such as the fancy front brake discs. However, we can’t help but feel it could’ve look even more aggressive.
But first, we had to look at whether the RS3 is as practical as a hot hatch should be. Clearly some of its rivals, such as the BMW M2, are not.
Cabin space is very good, among the best in the hot-hatch segment. It also gets a decent amount of tech, including that pop-up screen.
It can certainly fit a baby pram, but there isn’t much space left after that is done.
But boy does it drive with the tenacity of a sports car. More on that in the full review.
