Default 2019 Audi RS4 Avant

Quote:
The new Audi RS4 Avant has been spied ahead of its full reveal next week.


The German automaker has confirmed the new Audi RS4 Avant will make its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, and these latest spy photos give us an idea of what to expect.

Although itís still wearing quite a bit of camouflage, some of it has been removed to reveal green paint on the roof and pillars. We can make out the aggressive front end of the wagon with its large front grille and side air intakes.


The hot wagon is powered by the same 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 found in the Porsche Panamera 4S and is expected to provide a bit more performance with 450 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque, like whatís found in the RS5. That should be good enough to allow the RS4 Avant to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in under four seconds.

Remember this article couple years ago.

Next Audi RS4 Switches to V-6, May Come to the U.S. as RS4 Avant or RS5 Sportback
Quote:
Let’s start with the good news. Heinz Hollerweger, head of Audi’s Quattro GmbH, says that expanding sales in the U.S. is vital for improving the division’s performance. “Europe is becoming a less important market, the U.S.A. and China are where we see growth happening,” he told us at the press launch for the new Audi R8. So naturally we asked him about the replacement for the current RS4 (pictured)—specifically its prospects for America. And those prospects look good.

Firstly, as previously reported, Hollerweger confirmed that the new car will switch to six-cylinder power, with a turbocharged unit in place of the outgoing model’s charismatic naturally aspirated V-8. “I think that power has increased more than enough, and of course other performance is improved too,” he said, adding that the upcoming car will have a higher output than the last one’s 420 horsepower.

Although he wouldn’t discuss exact timing, he said the RS4 will be launched relatively early in the production cycle of the new A4. We’re presuming that means shortly after the S4, which is due next year and which will stick with a modified version of the current car’s supercharged V-6.

The more pressing question is whether the new RS4 will make it to the U.S. Hollerweger confirmed that it will launch as an Avant station wagon, saying, “that is what people expect from the RS4.” Based on past experience, that means Audi America is likely to deny it to us. But there is a glimmer of hope. “The U.S. is changing, and there is more demand there [for wagons], so maybe that will change,” Hollerweger said.

So will there be a sedan? Hollerweger suggested not: “we have to think of where we want to sell cars, and what is expected there. The potential in China and the U.S. for RS models is getting us thinking about body styles that may work there—maybe a hatchback, like the RS7.”

With a Sportback four-door version of the current S5 having already been sold in certain markets, that sounds like a pretty broad hint that we’re likely to get an RS5 Sportback rather than an RS4. RS4 Avant or RS5 Sportback, we’ll take Audi’s maximum A4 however we can get it.

This 535 touring of mine is pretty stodgy if I'm honest, although I do like it. Definitely need wifey to upgrade me.

Now, at the Frankfurt auto show, that car has arrived in the form of the all-new Audi RS4 Avant, a vehicle that always sets our hearts to racing—even though there are no current plans to offer it in the United States.
