I must say, I’m very unhappy with this “put our sportiness into our SUVs with a center of gravity that’s ten feet off the ground” trend, but here is Audi tossing their hat into the ring.

Enter the RS Q3 Concept. I personally appreciate the 2.5ness of its TFSI engine that is mated to the ever-techy 7-speed S-tronic trans. As for the numbers: we have 360 horsepowers, a 0-62 time of 5.2 seconds, and atop speed of 164mph. Kind of goes without saying that the signature Quattro all wheel drive system is included.

Aesthetically, the proposed RS Q3 sports a carbon fibre-reinforced polymer front spoiler, tinted headlamps (?!), an upgraded “honeycomb" grille and a sportTACULAR black and blue interior.

The shade of blue is fun stuff. I’m also noticing the matte finish. It’s just a rendering.. but I’m noticing, you know? Who’s down?!
