The Audi Q2 was front and center at the Geneva Motor Show but the four-ringed brand also used the event to introduce the new RS Q3 performance. Set to become the third member of the RS performance family, the RS Q3 performance follows in the footsteps of the RS Q3 but is distinguished by matte titanium accents and 20-inch alloy wheels with a matte titanium finish. Customers can also order an exclusive Ascari blue metallic exterior that is unique to the model.

The Audi Q2 was front and center at the Geneva Motor Show but the four-ringed brand also used the event to introduce the new RS Q3 performance.

Set to become the third member of the RS performance family, the model follows in the footsteps of the RS Q3 but is distinguished by matte titanium accents and 20-inch alloy wheels with a matte titanium finish.  Customers can also order an exclusive Ascari blue metallic exterior that is unique to the model.

The interior largely carries over and it comes nicely equipped with leather and Alcantara sport seats with embossed "RS Q3" logos.  Other highlights include a flat-bottom multifunction steering wheel, blue contrasting stitching, and carbon twill blue trim.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that has been tuned to produce 367 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque.  It is connected to a seven-speed S tronic transmission and a quattro all-wheel drive system which enables the crossover to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 167 mph.

The Audi RS Q3 performance will start arriving at dealerships in the second quarter of 2016 and German pricing starts at €61,000.
