2019 Audi RS 3 Chassis

Observing the variables gives you greater control.
Handling and balance starts with the chassis. So we built the Audi RS 3 with quality components from the ground up, taking special care with chassis components like RS-tuned Audi magnetic ride suspension and RS-tuned progressive steering to help bring out the best in your performance, and your performance vehicle.

RS-tuned progressive steering

Increasing the steering ratio as you turn the wheel, sport-inspired progressive steering helps gives you tighter control in the corners.

RS-tuned fixed sport suspension

An available fixed suspension replaces standard Audi magnetic ride with a precision-tuned sport feel at home on the road or on the track.

RS-tuned Audi magnetic ride

Using a synthetic blend of hydrocarbon oil containing tiny magnetic particles between 3 and 10 microns in diameter, Audi magnetic ride adjusts the firmness of the dampers to help meet the current road conditions within a few milliseconds by creating a magnetic field within the shock absorber. Drivers can choose between a more comfortable ride or a sportier experience to suit the situation and their personal preference.
Let us show you how Audi Magnetic ride works.
