Audi’s RS3 Is So Insane It Has To Be Our 2023 Car Of The Year

From Alex on Autos.

The Audi RS3 shocked me this year. For the relative price, Audi gives you a pure stick of dynamite that goes 0-60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds and handles like it is glued to the pavement. The AWD system is insanely good, allowing for a true RWD feel with vectoring of 100% to either rear wheel. It has a Jekyll/Hyde dual-personality that allows for comfortable cruising when you need it but outright giggle-inducing fun when you want it. The best part? If you can’t afford and RS3, there is an S3 with a lot of the same ingredients that make the RS3 so good. Can’t afford an S3? The standard A3 has the fundamentals that make this generation the best in its class. You really can’t go wrong unless you want to fit three abreast in the back seat. Otherwise, this is hands down the best car I drove this year and wholly deserving of the Car of the Year title.
