Audi RS 3 Hatchback (2017 - )

The Audi RS 3 Sportback is one of the fastest and most powerful hot hatches available, which gives it some real appeal. There’s no denying how fast you can go in it in all weathers, and it’s as well-built as we’ve come to expect from Audi.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

When the Audi RS 3 Sportback was given a revamp in 2017 it was considerably more expensive and more powerful than its rivals. But since then Mercedes-Benz has brought out the even-more-horsepower-filled AMG A45, and BMW has its M2 Competition, which also has more grunt, albeit not by much. Both are more expensive, too, and by several thousand pounds. What’s more, you’ll lose less money over time on the RS 3, thanks to strong resale values. Servicing, repairs and maintenance should be cheaper in the Audi as well. In the grand scheme of things, it won’t be cheap to run, but within the realm of ludicrously powerful, premium hot hatches, the RS 3 seems like a bit of a bargain.
