Smile Q3 is the 1st Audi SUV to wear an RS Badge

Audi are targetting towards a serious market share by exploring new segments that even BMW or Mercedes haven't explored yet. Thus, Audi have moved a step further by introducing the all-new RS Q3 at the Beijing Automotive Show! Audi's RS vehicles are similar to those of BMW's M or Mercedes' AMG. Any RS vehicle worthy of the label begins with an outstanding powertrain. In this case, the RS Q3 features the same 2.5-liter TFSI turbocharged five-cylinder that is available in the TT RS, with 360 horsepower and a zero to 62 time pegged at just 5.2 seconds. The powertrain also features a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and full-time Quattro all-wheel-drive.

The pumped-up softroader also features several RS-themed styling cues, including a black honeycomb grille that Audi says has a particularly three-dimensional appearance. The concept also features brushed and polished aluminum trim around said grille, tinted headlights and an updated bumper with graping air intakes. The little Q3 also features massive 20-inch aluminum wheels coupled with a ride height that has been dropped by a full inch.

On the inside, the RS Q3 concept displays a blacked-out theme throughout, save for one high-class exception: The seat inserts feature dark blue Alcantara inserts surrounded by Nappa leather. The same dark blue re-appears in the form of door inserts that integrate blue luminescent glass fibers.

After this, We could hope BMW to launch an X1 M also!

This li'l cute compact crossover just played a game of Mortal Kombat!

Keep revvin'
