We think the five-cylinder Audi RS Q3 (from 66,500 euros) is heartwarming. But how much does the fun cost in everyday life and how much fuel does the SUV use?
Our test consumption
The Audi RS Q3 comes with a 400 hp 2.5-liter five-cylinder petrol engine, which consumes ten liters per 100 kilometers according to the WLTP standard. In our test, the SUV consumed 10.1 liters, which means fuel costs of 17.47 euros for this route. The Eco consumption value is significantly lower at 7.9 liters - the petrol costs here are 13.67 euros. Sports drivers chase an average of 12.8 liters through the five combustion chambers - makes 22.14 euros. The fuel costs are calculated using the daily updated fuel price on our partner portal mehr-tanken.de (as of February 4, 2022, Super E5: 1.73 euros per liter).
Monthly maintenance costs
The annual vehicle tax for the Audi RS Q3 is 434 euros. According to Allianz Direct , liability insurance costs 333 euros in the same period. A partially comprehensive insurance costs 156 euros per year, fully comprehensive insurance is 880 euros. If you drive 15,000 kilometers a year, you have to budget for monthly costs of 411 euros. At 30,000 kilometers, the amount increases to 759 euros. Added to this is the loss of value.
How to test
The auto motor und sport test consumption consists of three differently weighted consumption runs. So-called “commuter consumption” accounts for 70 percent. This is a journey from home to work, which averages 21 kilometers. A particularly economical, approx. 275-kilometre-long eco-lap is included in the rating with 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent is accounted for by the sports driver lap. The length is roughly the same as the Eco lap, but the route includes a larger proportion of motorway and thus higher speeds on average. The calculation basis for the fuel costs is always the price indication of the portal "more refueling" from the day the article was created.
The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The calculation is based on the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz Direct, including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (accident-free/15,000 km per year, resident in the postcode area 70174, not under 21, partner drivers older than 25 years).

With an annual mileage of 15,000 kilometers, the monthly maintenance costs are 411 euros. If the mileage increases to 30,000 kilometers, the sum increases to 759 euros.
