2022 Audi RS 3 spy shots: 400-plus-horsepower compact sedan coming soon

A new generation of the Audi A3 was unveiled in April, and like its predecessors the car will spawn performance variants. The S3 was revealed in August and an RS 3 is coming up soon.

A prototype for the new RS 3 has been spotted again, revealing many clues about the new performance compact sedan. Prototypes for the RS 3 Sportback hatch are also out testing, though we’re unlikely to see this model in the United States, just like with the current generation.

The new A3 represents more of a major update of the current generation than a true redesign, with both generations utilizing the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform. This will also be true for the new RS 3.
