New Audi Sport RS quattro models take flight

Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive technology soared in the World Rally Championship in the early 1980s — captured in the iconic image of the Ur-Quattro rally car in mid-flight — and has only progressed immensely since. In the 2022 Audi RS 5 Sportback and Audi RS Q3 Sportback, the latest quattro technology makes both models still as thrilling and able to soar to new heights.      

The 2022 Audi RS 5 Sportback and RS Q3 Sportback available in Audi Philippines — the sole representative of Audi AG in the country — are assured of key ownership advantages which only an official dealership can offer. Chief among these is that only technicians trained at the Audi headquarters in Germany, who use only OEM tools, factory-supplied equipment and certified genuine parts, work on the RS models developed by Audi Sport — Audi AG’s high-performance division.

Audi Philippines’ access to the latest software updates and the service bulletins, both of which issued by Audi AG exclusively to official dealerships, also ensure the new Audi RS 5 Sportback and Audi RS Q3 Sportback will always perform in optimal condition. Plus, as an official dealership, Audi Philippines provides the models with extensive factory warranties, and backs these with complete and authentic documents that guarantee the cars are comprehensively certified and backed by proof that the correct amount of duties and taxes due to them have been completely paid for.   

All this benefits the ownership experience of the high-performance Audi RS models. The latest version of the Audi RS 5 Sportback arrives with numerous new design details and a host of intuitive digital technologies, so the car becomes an even more dynamic all-rounder by combining stunning pulling power and immense traction with daily-use practicality.

Defining the 2022 Audi RS 5 Sportback’s design are its wave-like shoulder line, RS Singleframe grille, plenty of air inlets, flared wheel arches, and perfectly balanced proportions that come as a result of having a long hood and short overhangs — features that largely marked the Ur-Quattro. Further making the car look more spectacular are the redesigned RS-specific bumper, lip spoiler, LED combination lamps, rear diffuser and RS exhaust system. The Black Optic trim package and 20-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels available in distinctive designs further sharpen up the look of the new Audi RS 5 Sportback.

Powering the 2022 Audi RS 5 Sportback is a 2.9-liter, twin-turbo TFSI V6 producing 450hp and 600Nm. An 8-speed tiptronic transmission tuned for sportiness transmits the engine’s output to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. The RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control constantly counteracts the pitch and roll movements of the vehicle’s body to bind the car to the road, especially during hard cornering.

Also combining outstanding performance with practicality is the 2022 Audi RS Q3 Sportback. The model’s RS genes are apparent in its wide Singleframe grille, RS front bumper with large side air inlets and striking boomerang-shaped blades, the flat slits near the hood, RS-specific roof edge spoiler, RS exhaust system with large oval tailpipes, and RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser. The model’s flared wheel arches also pay homage to those on the Ur-Quattro.

Audi Sport’s legendary line of 5-cylinder engines — also used in the Ur-Quattro — continue in the 2022 Audi RS Q3 Sportback. The model’s multi-award-winning, 2.5-liter 5-cylinder TFSI engine produces 400hp and 480Nm. Sending the output to the quattro all-wheel drive system is a 7-speed S tronic transmission.

In both the latest Audi RS 5 Sportback and Audi RS Q3 Sportback, suspension and performance characteristics can be chosen using Audi drive select, which offers comfort, auto and dynamic settings, plus the new RS1 and RS2 modes which can be individually configured, saved, and then selected directly via the RS Mode button on the steering wheel.

Through these technologies, Audi RS models take flight.
