Buying a used Audi RS3 on finance is a smart choice for many reasons. For starters, you can get into a high-spec RS3 for lower monthly payments than buying new. Even 1-2 year old examples retain strong value but are more affordable. Finance deals also allow you to safely spread the cost without a huge initial outlay. And you still get all the benefits of RS3 ownership - effortless performance, quattro all-wheel drive, premium tech and iconic styling. With favourable interest rates, you can enjoy maximum value for money.
The Audi RS3 is the high-performance variant of the A3 hatchback. First introduced in 2011, the RS3 packs a serious punch thanks to its turbocharged petrol engine and quattro all-wheel drive system. With its aggressive body styling, lowered sports suspension and upgraded brakes, the RS3 delivers thrilling performance and handling with everyday practicality.
Performance models like the RS3 appeal to enthusiasts seeking exhilarating speed paired with usable luxury. Despite the performance, these are refined, comfortable cars thanks to Audi's excellent cabin quality and sound insulation. The RS3 is ideal for buyers who want a practical family car or commuter that also provides serious pace when desired.
The RS3 is available in Sportback and Saloon body styles, with no trim levels as such. Optional extras allow you to customise your car - popular options include upgraded brakes, adaptive dampers, matrix LED headlights and carbon styling packs.
The RS3 comes in two distinct body shapes - the 5-door Sportback hatchback, and the 4-door Saloon.
The Sportback has a large tailgate opening giving easy access to the load bay. With rear seats folded, it offers 1300 litres cargo capacity. The sleek roofline does impinge rear headroom slightly.
The Saloon features a conventional boot accessed via the rear tailgate. It offers less overall space than the Sportback but better rear headroom. The Saloon's styling is more conservative than the sporty hatchback.
The Audi RS3 is packed with technology and desirable features:
At the heart of the RS3 is a 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, tuned to deliver an extremely potent 400PS and 500Nm of torque. Quattro all-wheel drive puts the power down securely, with a limited-slip rear differential for tighter control of the rear wheels. Performance is startling - 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds with 174mph top speed.
Despite the brutal pace, the engine features cylinder deactivation to save fuel when cruising. Combined economy is up to 34mpg, meaning longer trips won't drain the wallet. CO2 emissions are also reasonably low at just 188g/km.
For even greater control, the RS3 offers carbon-ceramic brakes as an option - guaranteeing fade-free stopping power on track days. Standard safety kit includes ABS, stability control and multiple airbags. The RS3 achieved a full 5-star Euro NCAP crash test rating.
With its high-performance credentials and practical hatchback body, the RS3 appeals to a wide audience.
Younger drivers and enthusiasts will love the sports car-rivalling acceleration and handling. The RS3 is perfectly usable as a daily driver too, thanks to the automatic transmission and comfortable interior.
Downsizing families can enjoy the RS3's blend of pace and space. There's decent rear legroom and up to 1300 litres total load volume when needed.
Company car drivers benefit from the RS3's lower CO2 emissions and fuel costs compared to other high-performance cars. The premium badge also fits company car expectations.
Carplus offers two great ways to finance your used Audi RS3:
Also known as a personal loan, hire purchase spreads the total loan amount into fixed monthly payments. Once you've made all payments including interest over the term, you own the Audi RS3.
HP deals offer flexibility in loan length. We can tailor the term and deposit to create more affordable monthly payments.
With HP finance, the RS3 is yours once payments are finished - no final lump sum to find.
Our PCP (personal contract purchase) deals keep monthly costs lower by deferring a portion of the RS3's value until the end of the contract.
You agree a loan amount covering just the vehicle's depreciation during the term, not the full purchase price. Monthly payments are therefore much lower.
At the end of the agreed term, you have three choices:
PCP offers low monthly costs and flexibility, making the Audi RS3 more accessible.
