The 2018 Audi RS 3 Sedan makes for an excellent contender in the subcompact sedan class. With standalone trim on offer, the Audi RS 3 has a base MSRP of $54,900. It competes directly with the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45, the Jaguar XE S, and the BMW M3. Only a 2.5L Turbo Inline-5 engine is offered, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Together, they produce 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. Accelerating from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, the RS 3 maintains a combined fuel economy of 22 MPG. Audi offers the RS 3 in 7 stunning colors, with the Catalunya Red Metallic being our particular favorite.
