Review: The Audi RS3 Saloon offers understated looks but supercar performance with a decent dash of practicality

You’ll need deep pockets for this special Audi but your reward will be a turbocharged car that looks, sounds and performs like cars should

The Audi RS3. "Designed and produced by the high-performance Audi Sport GmbH division, the RS badge has come to signify usability and performance and has graced some of Audi’s most exhilarating cars"
