New Audi RS 3 2022 arrives in the United States for US $ 60,000

It's been a long time, but Audi enthusiasts in the United States will soon have a new sports sedan to enjoy. The RS 3 is scheduled to hit dealerships in the summer, and its MSRP will start at just under $$ 60,000.

and we mean only. The Audi list the RS 3 at $ 58,900, with a mandatory destination fee of $ 1,095 being extra. Added together, the total is $ 59,995, so you earn a lot. All RS 3 models have the same in-line 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, producing 401 horsepower (299 kilowatts). For the record, that's a few more horsepower than you'll find in the RS 3 across the pond, and the power still goes to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It's enough to send the sedan to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, and if you really love the bright green exterior.

However, it is only free color that Audi offers, so being less visible will cost you. You'll pay $ 595 for any other color in the palette, or if none of them suit your needs, you can choose something custom through Audi's exclusive $ 3,900 special paint color option. To find the most expensive RS 3 you can get, we naturally selected this option in our dummy version.

Other options include the RS Technology package by US$ 2750. This offers some notable goodies, including a heads-up display, navigation, the updated Bang & Olufsen stereo, and a six-month subscription to Audi Connect, among other things. The US $ 5,500's Dynamic Plus package adds ceramic front brakes, a carbon engine cover, and a speed limiter boost to 180 mph. More carbon fiber is available in the Carbon package, adding material to the side mirrors, side sill inserts and spoiler. Other miscellaneous items, like the Audi Side Assist with cross-traffic alert and sports exhaust system, bring us to the grand total: US$ 76,245.

Audi also offers some packages that are only available with the green exterior. That includes the Black Optic Plus package and the green RS Design package, but a Kyalami Green RS 3 with all the options selected is still not as much as picking something with a custom paint job. The total with these selected items is $ 74,595.
