Spied: Test Mule for Facelifted Audi RS 3 Sportback

Now that the RS 3 is in its second year of production, it’s about time for Audi to start thinking mid-lifecycle freshening. That’s exactly what this RS 3 Sportback represents, spied last week near the Nürburgring.

Changes appear to be a slightly different shaped grille, with a change in the mesh and a modified front bumper. It also appears the Audi rings have moved up slightly within the frame of the grille, likely shifting to the new corporate flat rings seen on the recently introduced Q8 e-tron.

As usual, the headlights will likely retain the same shape but offer different graphic light signatures. The same applies at the rear.
