Audi RS Q3 enters production image

Audi has recently started the production of the RS Q3 in Spain, at the SEAT facility in Martorell.

After it was officially unveiled just a few months ago, the Audi RS Q3 is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker announcing its production start in Martorell, Spain, at the SEAT plant. The model in question is the most powerful compact SUV in the world and also the most powerful production vehicle ever to be produced in Spain. The Audi RS Q3 will rival the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG and the new Porsche Macan, which will hit the market over the following months.

The powerful compact SUV is coming with honeycomb grille inserts, new front and rear bumpers, different side skirts, rear diffuser, roof mounted spoiler and 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels. The Audi RS Q3 is powered by a 2.5 liter five-cylinder petrol engine, which is good for 310 HP (228 kW) and 420 Nm of torque (310 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission. Power is being sent to the Quattro all-wheel drive system, which is helping the model sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
