Supercar performance and the practicality of an Avant. Although seemingly at loggerheads, these two distinct qualities have been perfectly combined in the new Audi RS 4 Avant, a masterpiece of design and engineering that seamlessly marries high-performance motoring and everyday usability.
0 to 100 km/h
With the 2.9 litre V6 TFSI engine in the Audi RS 4 Avant, 331 kW and maximum torque of 600 Nm deliver pure driving pleasure. The vehicle sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and tops out at 250 km/h. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive with sport differential helps ensure superior traction and agile handling.
Dynamic driving experience
The combination of quattro all-wheel drive with sport differential and the optional dynamic steering and RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) create the perfect environment to delight the most demanding performance aficionado. Coupled with the standard Audi drive select dynamic handling system and RS brake system – which can be optioned to ceramic braces – the RS 4 Avant delivers an exhilarating driving experience that demands to be explored at every opportunity.
The performance character of the RS 4 Avant permeates the superbly finished interior, where luxury combined with meticulous attention to detail are evident throughout. From the RS sport contour leather steering wheel, complete with multifunction and aluminium shift paddles, to front RS sport seats in fine Nappa leather, with the distinctive RS honeycomb pattern in rock grey – every aspect of the interior has been carefully considered and beautifully executed. Once again, customers can elect to further customise their car with the RS design package in red, which adds red accents throughout for its own distinctive look.
Few cars can match the RS 4 Avant for its sheer performance and handling prowess. Fewer still offer that high-performance in a luxury package that includes generous accommodation for an entire family and their luggage. From the rear seat which can be folded 40:20:40 to create myriad storage options, to the convenience of opening the boot compartment with the touch of a button or a simple foot gesture when your arms are otherwise occupied, the RS 4 Avant takes the everyday in its stride. That practicality is further enhanced with the storage and luggage compartment package that ensures all is neatly stowed away, while the optionally available rail system with load-securing kit keeps luggage and equipment secure even when the RS 4 Avant high-performance side is unleashed.
