The Sportback variant further receives a sleek rear roof spoiler crafted from carbon fiber, adding to its dynamic appeal.

Premium Interior Touches
Inside the cabin, the ABT RS3-S exudes sophistication with exclusive touches such as the ABT RS3-S emblem badge, illuminated door entry lighting with the ABT logo, and custom floor mats bearing the RS3-S logo. An ABT start-stop switch flap adds a touch of flair, signaling the awakening of the powerful five-cylinder engine with every start.
