Audi RS4 QUATTRO Avant 2021 Radio Review

Nobody does sports wagons quite like Audi and the RS4 Avant is one of the best. Audi RS4 Avant Quattro is truly a beast of a vehicle.

Audi RS4 Avant Quattro Profile

Not in the way that it difficult to drive, far from it, but it has outstanding performance packaged into a stunning wagon design that commanding street presence.

 

The RS 4 Avant comes equipped with Matrix LED headlights, and all models have the Coming Home and Leaving Home feature, whereby a dynamic light sequence plays in the headlights and rear lights when the car is locked and unlocked.

At the heart of the RS4 is a 2.9-litre TFSI V6 engine with twin turbochargers, developing 331 kW of power and a reasonable 600Nm of torque from 1,900 rpm. This drives all four wheels through the QUATTRO system and an eight speed tiptronic transmission.

This is good for a 0-100kmh time of 4.1 seconds and a governed top speed of 250kmh. Not that we can explore those speeds in Australia.

Audi RS4 Avant Quattro interior

With a heap of RS styling cues such as 20 inch alloys, RS black grill, gloss red RS brake calipers and black tailpipes the RS4 looks stunning. Step inside and that theme continues with a special interior highlighted by comfortable and supportive RS seating with massage function.

The RS4 Avant is an absolute delight to drive with effortless performance and stunning handling. Its priced from $150,400 including options plus the usual costs.
