Audi Ireland has announced the pricing of the new Audi RS 4 Avant, which combines breathtaking driving performance with accessibility for everyday use.
The fourth generation Audi model, which made its world debut at this year’s International Motorshow (IAA ) in Frankfurt, will retail at €102,350 on the road and will be available to order late 2017.
The Audi RS 4 Avant’s newly developed 2.9-litre TFSI engine delivers a balance of both torque and efficiency. From 1,900 to 5,000rpm, the V6 twin turbo sends a powerful 600Nm of torque to the wheels, 170 Nm more than its predecessor.
Pushing out 450HP, the RS 4 Avant accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 4.1 seconds, while using just 8.8 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres, 17 per cent less than the previous model.
Its sleek and sporty exterior is accentuated with striking air inlets, designed with the typical RS honeycomb structure. Together with the wide, flat single frame grille, the front of the car showcases how the overall design is inspired by the legendary Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO.
The sophisticated black interior and digital racing-style cockpit underscores the sporty character of the Audi RS 4 Avant. The Audi virtual cockpit and optional heads up display indicates to the driver the g-force, tire pressures and torque.
The quattro drive, which comes as standard, distributes the power of the V6 biturbo to all four wheels, creating a smooth yet powerful driving experience. The standard-fit RS sport suspension sets the Audi RS 4 Avant another seven millimetres lower than an Audi A4 with sport suspension.
