As we predicted, Audi just unveiled the wraps off the new Audi RS3 Sedan at the 2016 Paris Motor Show and it got way more power and looks that make any car enthusiast shaky at the sight. For those of you who bought the recent RS3 hatchback, we told you to wait didn’t we? we also mentioned more power would be a vital pill to the RS3 sedan version.

Oh but it’s not that much right? Wrong. The Audi RS3 Sedan is packaged with the same turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder powerhouse found in the RS3 hatchback, but now gets 400-hp and 352-lb-ft of torque. Over 50-hp more than the hatchback version and a good 108-hp more than the S3 sedan. Undeniably, both of those cars are good but this RS3 sedan is an M3 fighter that is pegged for the M2.

Now for the interesting gossip; Audi says the new Audi RS3 Sedan can dispatch a 0-60 mph time in just 4.1 seconds.  With an S-tronic 7 speed dual-clutch gearbox and all-wheel-drive, this car becomes insatiably irresistible.

Pricing is expected to be somewhere around the low $50,000 mark but that isn’t for sure yet. Either ways, i’m pretty sure we will be seeing this car a lot on the streets of Dubai and around the world. This car would be a perfect small family sedan with 400-hp, surely a package that is irresistible for the auto-enthusiast that is looking for something much more special than the current S3 sedan.

Should you buy?

It would be a perfect fit for you if you daily your sports car and wouldn’t want to shell out a lot of money for another German coupe that’s got limited space and a stiff ride. It’s also going to have plenty of exhaust drama like the RS3 hatchback but with the wider wheelbase, it could eliminate the annoying understeer present in the current hot hatch.
