No, my fingers didn’t stutter while typing out the title. Mat Watson from carwow loves pitting Audi against other OEMs but this time, he brought all three generations of the RS 3. He couldn’t get his hands on a MK III hatchback so the sedan version would have to do. So how do they stack up against one another? They all have the 2.5L 5-cylinder but the MK I has 340 hp/354 lb-ft and weighs 3,472 lbs, the MK II has 400 hp/360 lb-ft and weighs 3,329 lbs, and the MK III 400 hp/369 lb-ft and weighs 3,472 lbs. Will new beat old? I think the real competition will be between the MK III and the MK II.
Oh and shameless plug, our own RS 3 Sweepstakes is ending on December 31st. You get double entries and we’re giving away a prize a day this week and everyone who enters gets an RS sticker 3 pack that includes an RS 6 Avant RS Tribute edition, a Nogaro Blue RS 2 Avant, and an RS 3 sedan (while supplies left)!
Watch the excitement below.
