The new generation of the Audi A4 was missing its iconic crown jewel, but it is here. Audi has just presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show the new Audi RS 4 Avant, which as its range partners goes to turbocharging. Although it can be booked this fall, it will reach Spanish dealerships early next year, with a starting price of 96,890 euros.
This family of weapons take recourse to the 2.9 TFSI V6 biturbo engine that other brothers ride as the recent Audi RS 5 Coupé, with a power of 450 hp and a maximum torque of 600 Nm between 1,900 and 5,000 RPM, which means having much more power than before - concretely 170 Nm additional - and in a much greater range of revolutions.
The Audi RS 4 Avant 2018 accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds and can reach either 250 km / h (standard) or with a new weight of 80 kilograms (1,790 kg total). well 280 km / h with the optional RS dynamic package.
Of course, the biturbo engine's strength is divided between the four wheels thanks to the quattro all-wheel drive and the eight-gear tiptronic gear with sports management. It homologates an average consumption of 8.8 liters per hundred kilometers (199 g / km of CO2).
As standard, this ranchera mounts the sport suspension RS, which reduces the height of the body in 7 millimeters with respect to a conventional A4 with sports suspension. In addition, the RS sport plus variable hardness suspension (Dynamic Ride Control), dynamic steering with RS settings or ceramic brakes are optionally available.
Audi Sport says that the design of this fourth generation of its RS 4 Avant is inspired by the Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO: huge air intakes, RS honeycomb grille, wide Singleframe grille, Matrix LED lights (optional ), wheel arches 3 centimeters wider than in a normal A4 Avant, specific RS diffuser, oval exhaust outlets and roof spoiler RS, among other things.
Audi Exclusive also offers the blue color Nogaro with pearl effect, in a nod to the RS 4 of 1999, although there are also infinite possibilities of personalization, both inside and out. The 20-inch wheels are optional, being the standard forged aluminum and 19 inches.
In the passenger compartment, obviously based on the new generation of the A4 family, sports seats (optionally RS with honeycomb pattern), sports multifunction steering wheel, illuminated slats at door thresholds, specific digital instrument cluster (Audi virtual cockpit) RS, head-up display and decorative moldings that can be made of black plastic, carbon with aluminum or carbon with black elements.
