Report: Next Audi RS3 to get a 400hp 2.0L TSI four-banger

German outlet AutoZeitung reports that the incoming Audi RS3 could receive a whopping 400hp 2.0L TFSI turbo four-banger.

This coincides with Audi’s apparent decision to ditch their lovely high-performance turbocharged 2.5L five-cylinder originally from the Audi TT-RS. The 2.0L TFSI motor first debuted on the TT offroad Concept from the recent Beijing Motor Show. In the RS3’s application, the motor will be mated to a seven-speed S-tronic cogswapper along with Audi’s patented Quattro all-wheel drive.
