This may seem an oddball question, but I just read on the Audi USA website the 2022 RS3 has a 40.5 or so foot turning circle (12.34m). This caught my eye of concern. I currently drive a 2016 Volvo S60 Polestar, and while overall the car is a nice car to drive, parking it has always been a bit of a pain for me. Parking lots these days have smaller spots and the rows seem closer together, thus preventing wide turn ins. Had I tested my car in poarking before I bought it, I would not have made the purchase in all honesty. My prior car was a 2008 BMW 335i and it simply zipped in and out of parking spots.

I have been leaning toward a 2022 RS3 this Fall after going through the inevitable acceptance of EV cars (I have range anxiety) but not yet wanting to buy one. I would be interested in a smaller performance SUV if there were one I liked in the US, but that is another discussion! I thought the 2022 RS3 might well be a great car for me. Perfectly fine at daily driving while at the same time very spirited for fun driving. Smaller as well.

So I am quite curious to know from current owners or those who have driven an RS3, do they park easily in a parking garage, etc, or do they require some finagling to get into the slot? I was expecting a much tighter turning diameter than 40.5 feet.. that is SUV like. Course, it could be a mis print on Audi's web site. I doubt there will be any chance for a test drive before ordering (something I'll need to negotiate) but parking woes with my current car leads me to not want a repeat. Thx in advance.

Thanks Sine. Appreciate the feedback. On a waiting list for the cars to show, so imagine it will be high demand for a while!
