Mat’s finally got his hands on the all-new Audi RS3!

He’ll be testing out both the Sportback & Saloon versions throughout this video to find out if this maxed-out A3 has what it takes to compete with its predecessor, along with competitors such as the A45!

For starters, it’s clearly not shy of performance when you check out what’s under the bonnet! That’s right, the 2.5-litre 5 cylinder is back, pumping out the same 400hp as before along with slightly more torque, at 500Nn. Audi claim it’ll hit 60mph in 3.8 seconds, but will it?! You’ll have to keep watching to find out…

When it comes to the design, there’ll be no mistaking the RS3 for either an A or S3, with the aggressive grille upfront through to the huge oval tailpipes at the back really helping it to stand out. What’s more, once you take a look inside, you’ll find a whole load of red stitching & accents throughout the cabin.

But is it really worth the £51,000 starting price? There’s only one way to find out… Stick with Mat for this all-new review!

  1. 06:26 – Do the fans look cheap & RUIN the interior? VOTE BELOW!

  2. Mat's aggressive swearing is what gets me through the day lmao

  3. I love the trim. It really helps the interior pop .

  4. Outstanding! I didn’t know he could curse😃

  5. When does Matt start on top gear??

  6. Matt Watson for next Top Gear presenter. I said it first.

  7. Audi RS3 has Porche like handling and a much nicer interior than the Golf R but still the same reliable engine.

  8. Just another Yank here insanely jealous you get the hatchback version of this…

  9. Dont the cupholders have the holders tucked away it looks like they can flip out when u need them to

  10. Exposed interior paintwork shouldn't be on a car of this cost.

  11. That new rev counter picture is a nod towards the old Reventon but the other way around.

  12. Epic, great car and video…

  13. NO WAY MAT…..AMG was better on this test. GR Yaris is at least 2 to 3 points less compared to A45S

  14. Reaction to the quarter mile time 😂😂😂😂

  15. adds flavor to it

  16. my dream car, I always come back to watch this video as many times as I can, I wish to own this one day

  17. Amazing car, Audi has stopped taking worldwide orders on this model, I wonder if they'll open the books again, could be the last ice RS3

  18. I wish we had this one in the North American market 😫

  19. very expensive than fabric

  20. unfortunatelly this car polish showroom price started 3174 pln

  21. For the money about as good as it gets. Very impressive.

    Of course the BMW didn’t let you in you weren’t signaling until they already passed ahead of you you pillock! 😂 Learn to use your blinkers properly and people will tend to accommodate…mostly…even beemer drivers…sometimes…maybe.

  23. Audi RS3 / TTRS has Rally Car DNA and is designed for ultimate performance around Europe/Alps/Various other mountains.
    So although it is quick around the track and 1/4 mile, when you go on a road trip you will see it come to life.
    I had a 2013 version, put Contact 6 Sport SP's on it and was 4 wheel drifting around mountain hairpins (not recommending or advising to do, but if your an advanced driver and have the skillset try if you wish).

    In terms of Tuning APR has the best off the shelf map, you probably do not need to do more than that if your buying the new RS3.

  24. what’s the name of your site again? I’m having trouble remembering
