The starting price of Audi’s new RS3 Sedan has leaked in Canada, as the car will cost CAD62,900. With this in mind, we can predict the price tag of the RS3 in the United States, which means that new model from Germany will go on sale for around $54,000.
Why is it so important to know how much the new RS3 costs? The reason for this is that many drivers from the US has always wanted to own an RS model and a special sedan version had to be produced because some fans of the Quattro thought that a hatchback would not be the cup of tea for this market.
The price of the 2018 Audi RS3 remains unknown in Europe, and it comes equipped with an upgraded variant of the 2.5-liter engine that will produce around 390 hp. This vehicle should hit 60 mph in just under four seconds, which is pretty amazing for a sedan. One of the reasons why this will be possible is the high usage of aluminum that will reduce the overall weight.
When you think about it, $54,000 is a substantial amount of money for a sedan. However, if you compare this price of the RS3 to the price of some other performance vehicles made by the German company, you will realize that this is not too bad. For example, there are the TTS and S5 Coupe that are at that level when it comes to price, but these two models are only available with two doors. What also makes the RS3 better is the 2.5-liter engine.
