The Audi RS Q3 is receiving even more power through the introduction of a new "performance" package. That package will bring the horsepower of the Q3 up to 367.

The new performance version brings horsepower up to 367 hp from the 340 hp that that the facelifted RS Q3 had. Torque takes a similar bump moving from 332 lb-ft in the facelifted RS Q3 up to 342 lb-ft in the new Audi Q3 with Performance package.

Wonder if that's possible. I am going to troll Audi dealerships to see if I can go for a ride around the block in one.

You'll need to be in the EU at least - since AoA is NOT bringing ANY to the NAR ...

60000+ for that is a lot of money better off go for the porche mccan
You can find a Porche Macan -new - for $60K similarly equipped - where?

But an SQ3 - with the 292hp from the Golf R would be more affordable!!

Nice idea John!

@ ~40K OTD for a fully loaded R - I wonder if people like us would pony up $50-55K* for an SQ3?

*This is based my estimate price premium between R vs. GTI.

I still think I would go for it. While I like the Golf R, I think I would choose the Audi with this engine if possible in the SQ3 package. This already exists in the S3 - selling for $49K. If they price it the same I would jump on it.

So they revealed the model in Geneva. In addition to the engine improvements listed above, it also received some cosmetic changes.

Visually, it gains titanium-look trim on both ends, bigger air vents up front, a gloss black grille insert, a bigger air diffuser built into the rear bumper, and it rides on dark gray 20-inch alloy wheels. The cabin features a specific instrument cluster with gray faces, white dials, and red needles, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, as well as black leather upholstery with blue contrast stitching.
It will be priced at €61,000 in Germany, and it has not been said yet if the model will be available in the US.

It's NOT comng to the NAR anytime soon if ever at all - There's a much more likely scenario around a "performance" version or SQ3 with the 292 hp 2.0, DSG and a few other goodies just before the new model platform car ... but I'm not holding my breath for that either. There's more focus on another, smaller SUV - either the Q2 or TTQ coming our way -
