The central display on the dashboard grows to 10.25 inches in size in 8:3 format and features a particularly clear design and easy readability (standard from Exclusive-Line). The expanded scope of the MyMazda app gives customers access to a host of new functions. DAB+ and an alarm system with interior monitoring are now on board as standard.

The design of the new Audi RS 3 is even more dynamic and powerful than that of its predecessor.

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.
