Audi is launching its revised version of its giant-killing go-fast  RS3 hatch with even more performance. 

Joining its sedan sibling in the local line-up the RS3 Sportback is priced from $80,900 before on-road costs, which is a rise of more than $2500 compared to the previous version. 

However, with the modest price rise comes a jump in outputs from the the 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, with power and torque boosted to 294kW and 480Nm, a rise of 24kW and 15Nm respectively. 

Coupled with the increase in engine outputs, Audi has also managed to shred 26kg thanks to a new aluminum crankcase. 

All this adds up to a blistering 0-100km/h time of just 4.1 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds faster than before. 

A slick seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission delivers the extra force to all four wheels via Audi's permanent all-wheel drive quattro system. 

Standard gear for the RS3 Sportback includes LED headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, large eight-piston brake calipers, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, DAB+ digital radio, 180-watt 10 speaker stereo and rear view camera with park assist. 

Safety equipment for the RS3 Sportback includes lane assist, adaptive cruise control and rear cross traffic alert among others. 

The 2018 Audi RS3 Sportback is now on sale locally.
