When it comes to the initial acceleration, the 2018 Audi RS 3 goes head-to-head with the rivals. It may not be the fastest but it certainly isn't the slowest either. You have enough rumble to get you on freeways and more. Apparently, the 2018 Audi RS 3 quickly covers up its ground and takes only 10.6 seconds to reach the quarter-mile mark making it the fastest car to do so in its segment.
During our emergency braking test, 2018 Audi RS 3 takes forever to come to a complete stop. The brake pedal is on the tighter side and the feedback is minimal. Even though the car stops in a no-nonsense manner it is relatively the slowest to stop from 60MPH to zero amongst the competitors. The 2018 BMW 5 Series takes a meager 80 feet to halt from 60MPH which is a lot quicker than any other rival in the segment.
