Bigger isn't always better. Case in point: the new Audi RS3 Sportback. Based on the compact A3, the RS3 Sportback is a five-door premium sport hatch that packs a whopping 340 horsepower from its turbocharged five-cylinder engine – through to all four corners via Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system and seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission – to rocket to 60 in just 4.6 seconds.
The RS3 Sportback's nearly 50,000 euro pricetag in Germany would put it around $68,000 in the United States. Unfortunately, like the rest of the top-shelf RS range, Audi does not appear to be planning to bring this model to America, so this is one more European model we'll just have to admire from afar.
