Honda’s Civic Type R isn’t the only car making its long-awaited return to American soil. Audi took to Paris today to take the wraps off of the 2018 edition of the RS3 and has confirmed that the powerful sedan will be coming to the United States, too.

Even more powerful than the previous model, the latest RS3 boasts 400 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque thanks to its new 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine. That engine is also responsible for acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and is mated to a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission and Audi’s Quattro AWD. And since it’s a sportier version of the A3, the RS3 also comes with a tweaked exterior that includes a wider overall body, a lower stance, flared fenders, a front splitter, and a rear lip spoiler. Finally, the interior ditches the usual gauges in favor of a 12.3” LCD with Audi’s optional “Virtual Cockpit” and offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.

Expect the 2018 RS3 to make its way to American soil in the latter months of 2017.
