    CarExpert's Take

    Anthony Crawford
    Senior Road Tester
    Anthony Crawford drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • The RSQ3 Sportback in Kyalami Green looks like a baby Urus
    • The 2.5-litre, five-cylinder turbo petrol is one of the world's great engines
    • Performance, pace, and grip through the fast-flowing bends is stupendous
    Misses
    • Do you choose the RSQ3 or RSQ3 Sportback?
    • Dual-clutch transmission won't always give you a gear on the downshift
    • Why the price premium on the Sportback?
