Exterior design is more aggressive than on the base model and the RS model is slightly larger. After the newest spy shots leaked online, more details about this crossover are available. From the inside, Audi RS Q3 will offer better legroom at the back and the cabin will look premium.
2020 Audi RS Q3 Looks Sporty
The all-new 2020 Audi RS Q3 was spotted doing road testing in cold Sweden. However, camouflage is so pointless that we can see all of the body features. RS variant is slightly larger than the base Q3 model. It features more aggressive styling and it looks sportier. RS Q3 model comes with large air intakes in the front bumper.
Fenders are wider and the roof spoiler is bigger. The rear end sports a more sculptured bumper and smaller diffuser. Also, new and sharper taillights are available. The 2020 RS Q3 model comes with larger 20-inch wheels as standard. Plenty of black mesh inserts are visible and the LED lighting system is standard too. Overall, the design is very aggressive and sporty.
The interior of the RS variant will be an upgraded version of the Audi’s “S” line. Imagine the SQ3 model but even more premium. The 2020 Audi RS Q3 will offer more standard equipment and it will introduce more upscale materials. That includes more aluminum, Alcantara and leather upholstery and more carbon fiber.
Four Rings automaker also promises better rear legroom in its new RS model. On the other hand, the cargo area will stay intact. That means there will be 50.3 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded flat. The cabin will be extremely modern. It comes with a fully digital gauge cluster and flat dashboard. The new three-spoke steering wheel is in the offer too.
