The design of the new Audi RS 3 is even more dynamic and powerful than that of its predecessor. In the front, the wide RS bumper, the redesigned Singleframe with its distinctive honeycomb grille, and the large air intakes give the compact sports car an expressive appearance. From 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, up to 290 km/h top speed, RS Torque Splitter, semi slicks, and specific RS driving modes – the new Audi RS 3 offers driving dynamics of the highest caliber and the best numbers in its segment. Equipped with a 294 kW (400 PS) five-cylinder, the high-performance engine delivers rapid acceleration with a highly intoxicating sound. The power unit now delivers 500 Nm of torque and responds even faster. Visually, the RS 3 demonstrates its sporty DNA with a widened body, RS sports exhaust system, and cockpit displays like those found in race cars.
New in the BMW 4 Series - straight-six diesel engines and exclusive optional extras
An additional BMW M automobile and a further model variant with a particularly powerful engine will underscore the sporty character of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé from March 2021. In both cases, an inline six-cylinder diesel engine and intelligent all-wheel drive ensure efficient driving pleasure. In the new BMW M440d xDrive Coupé, the 250 kW/340 hp powertrain with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology is also combined with an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, an M sports package and an M sports differential. Thanks to the outstanding performance of the 3.0-liter engine and its maximum torque of 700 Nm, the new BMW M440d xDrive Coupé accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds. With a maximum output of 210 kW/286 hp from likewise 3.0 liters of displacement and a maximum torque of 650 Nm, the drive unit of the new BMW 430d xDrive Coupé also enables spirited acceleration maneuvers. It takes just 5.1 seconds to sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h. In both straight-six diesel models, mild hybrid technology with a 48-volt starter generator provides a further boost to dynamics and efficiency. The system enables particularly intensive energy recovery in braking and overrun phases. This is stored in a 48-volt battery and used both for the vehicle electrical system and to generate additional drive power. When starting off and accelerating, the additional power of 8 kW/11 hp provided by the 48-volt starter generator optimizes spontaneous power delivery. In other load ranges, the electric drive can relieve the internal combustion engine and thus increase its efficiency.
