5. Audi RS3
From the outside, you could mistake the new RS3 Sedan for a regular A3 four-door since this model retains the elegance and proportions of the standard sedan. So, you might think that this is another rather boring compact sedan with nothing to show.
But as soon as you press the gas pedal, you will understand how wrong you were. The 2.5-liter unit delivers 400 HP and 354 lb-ft of torque. This makes it the most powerful car in its class. The power goes to all four wheels over the signature electronically-controlled Quattro AWD system.
This ensures the perfect traction and grip in all driving conditions. All of this translates to incredible performance numbers. In fact, the RS3 Sedan is capable of reaching 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and topping 174 mph.
