"In addition to the RS5 Cabriolet, RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback, the RS Q3 is the fourth RS model that we are launching on the market in 2013. The RS family is growing to eight members - more than ever." The RS Q3 combines typical RS properties such as high performance and driving pleasure with lifestyle qualities and high utility value.
