The Audi RS family has grown with the introduction of the RS4 Avant in South Africa. See specification and pricing details below...
Blending practicality and performance, the RS4 Avant is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 engine that produces 331 kW and 600 Nm of torque and together with an 8-speed automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive, a zero to 100 kph sprint time of 4.1 seconds is achievable. Top speed is limited to 250 kph but an optional RS package takes that figure up to 280 kph.
Audi claims a fuel consumption figure of 8.8 L/100km which Audi says is a 17% improvement over the outgoing model while also being some 80 kg lighter. Equipped with an RS sports suspension as standard and a mechanical centre differential lock which can send torque to the rear and front axles as required, the RS 4 Avant offers agility and stability in spirited driving situations.
Luggage space is generous too with a full 1 510 litres at your disposal with the 40:20:40 rear seats folded down. With the seats up, the load bay offers 505 litres. The tailgate can be opened by using a kick motion under the rear bumper provided that a key is detected. An electronic tow bar is offered too and the RS4 Avant can tow up to 2 100 kg.
Key standard features include LED headlights and tail lights, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, RS exhaust and Audi drive select dynamic handling system. The interior benefits from Audi Virtual Cockpit and MMI Navigation Plus as standard as well as RS sports seats in Nappa leather with diamond stitching and lumbar support. A flat-bottomed RS multifunction steering wheel and stainless steel pedals add a sporty touch. Other nice-to-haves include a Bang & Olufsen sound system, automatic climate control and Audi’s pre sense basic, side assist and parking system plus with a rear-view camera.
