Five-cylinder goodness
A four-wheel drive, techno-overload hot hatch that thinks it's a super-sedan. And probably really annoyed that the Aston Martin DBX has it licked for the Biggest Grille At Speed Week award.Ordinarily, the RS3's trump card is
That's over 200hp per liter
Audi describes this limited-edition hot hatch as a "true street artist", though it won't be painting a merry picture outside Europe because, um, you'll see why later.That's right, the most powerful production RS3 ever now bears
It's a strong possibility
You've already seen what the new-generation Vios looks like. Launched about two months ago, it premiered in Thailand as the Yaris Ativ with a 1.2-liter engine. A few weeks after that, the Laos market got their hands on

Will it still be the sedan king?
