Why should you buy used Audi RS3 on finance?

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.

About Audi RS3

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.

Audi RS3 trims

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.

Audi RS3 Body types

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.

Audi RS3 interior and exterior features

The Audi RS3 is packed with technology and desirable features:

  • Powerful 2.5 litre TFSI petrol engine with 400PS, quattro all-wheel drive and 8-speed auto gearbox delivers blistering performance
  • Aggressive exterior styling tweaks like honeycomb front grille, large rear wing and oval exhausts
  • Upgraded braking system with RS branding on front calipers
  • Heavily bolstered front RS sports seats provide extra support during hard cornering
  • Flat-bottomed leather RS multifunction steering wheel with paddle shifters
  • Audi Virtual Cockpit - fully digital configurable instrument cluster
  • MMI infotainment touchscreen with sat nav, DAB radio and smartphone integration
  • Premium interior finishes like Aluminium inlays and Nappa leather upholstery
  • Keyless entry and start, auto headlights and wipers

Audi RS3 technical characteristics

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.

Who is the Audi RS3 for?

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.

Audi RS3 finance options

Carplus offers two great ways to finance your used Audi RS3:

HP Audi RS3 finance deals

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.

PCP Audi RS3 finance deals

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:

  1. Pay the optional final payment to own the RS3
  2. Part-exchange the RS3 for another car
  3. Return the RS3 without further payment (subject to fair wear and tear)

PCP offers low monthly costs and flexibility, making the Audi RS3 more accessible.
