New compact SUV on display at Audi’s Fouad Alghanim and Sons Automotive Co showroom

Fouad Alghanim & Sons Automotive Company, the exclusive dealer of Audi in Kuwait, has welcomed the new RS Q3 performance compact SUV to its range of vehicles.

The premium brand is honing its sporty profile with new RS performance models. The “performance” in the name stands for bot significant power boost and exclusive equipment that clearly elevates the respective models above the rest of the portfolio. This also applies to the new RS Q3 performance, whos pulse is driven by the legendary Audi fivecylinder engine.

Since 2010, an international panel of automotive journalists has named the 2.5 TFSI “International Engine of the Year” in its
category six years in a row. With its pulling power, free-revving character and inimitable sound, goosebumps are guaranteed.



Compared with the RS Q3, Audi has bumped up the output of the 2.5 TFSI engine for the performance model, with additional 27 hp.

Commenting on the launch, Tarek Al Shafie, General Manager of Fouad Alghanim and Sons Automotive Company, said: “Outperforming other compact SUV’s, the new Audi RS Q3 performance delivers more power, and a dynamic ride, providing an experience like no other.

Reaching top speeds of 270 km/h, with 0 to 100 in 4.4 seconds, drivers will be sure to enjoy every aspect of its 2.5 litre, five-cylinder engine, and other dynamic features, elevating the Audi journey.”



The standard seven-speed S tronic has also been rigorously tuned for sportiness. The driver can either allow the extremely fastshifting dual-clutch transmission to do all the work or change gears manually using the shift paddles on the standard RS multifunction steering wheel. In the dynamic mode of the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, each gear change is accompanied by double-declutching.

The quattro permanent all-wheel drive smoothly delivers the engine’s power to the road via a hydraulically actuated, electronically
controlled multi-plate clutch. Power is distributed automatically between the front and rear axles as needed, and even selectively to each wheel thanks to the networked Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC). Furthermore, the handling controller can be deactivated to
access a retuned sport mode.



The taut RS sport suspension on the Audi RS Q3 performance perfectly translates the dynamics of the powerful engine and lowers the body by 20 millimeters compared with the Audi Q3. Audi offers the RS sport suspension plus with damper control as an option. Its
characteristic can be adjusted between the settings comfort, auto and dynamic via the Audi drive select dynamic handling system.
Distinctive appearance The exterior design with its typical RS design details underscores the distinctive appearance of the Audi high-performance models.

These include the sportily designed bumpers with large air inlets up front and the heavily profiled diffuser insert at the rear and
the gloss black honeycomb grilles. The exterior of the RS Q3 performance is also characterized by add-on parts in a matt titanium-look finish that are exclusive to the new top model. The frame of the air inlet duct and the quattro logo within, for example, are
finished this way. Other parts finished in matt titanium-look are: The Singleframe, the lateral flaps in the air inlets, the trim strips at the side windows, the exterior mirror housings, the roof rails, the upper edge of the diffuser and the fins of the roof edge spoiler.



On top of that, Audi also offers the new paint finish Ascari blue metallic - another feature exclusive to the new RS performance models. Another highlight are the RS-specific, 20 inch wheels in a five twin-spoke V design. They are available exclusively for the RS performance model in a matt titanium-look finish, matching the standard add-on parts in this same finish. The RS Q3 performance comes standard with red calipers bearing the RS logo.

Audi also offers the calipers in black at no extra charge. The dynamic line of the exterior design is echoed in the interior. The dial instruments feature gray faces, white dials and red needles.

Audi offers the sport seats in the color combination black and blue with the optional RS performance design package at no extra
charge. Additional elements, such as the RS sport leather steering wheel, the selector lever gaiter, the center armrest and the floor mats feature blue contrast stitching.

Inlays in carbon twill blue, in which a blue thread is woven into the carbon material, round out this exclusive combination.

The Audi RS Q3 Performance is exclusively available at Fouad Alghanim & Sons Automotive Company Audi showroom, opens Saturday through Thursday from 9 am to 1 pm and 4.30 pm to 8.30pm.
