Since the RS 2 Avant launched back in 1994, the RS badge has been reserved for models that combine supercar performance with everyday practicality. And that’s still true for the RS 4. Available exclusively in the Avant body style, it’s built around the 4.2 V8 FSI engine. Developing 450PS, and capable of a maximum 430 Nm of torque, it means the RS 4 Avant can sprint from zero to 62mph in under five seconds and on its way to a top speed of 174mph.
This formidable power is harnessed by the renowned quattro all-wheel-drive, as well as innovative high-performance 18-inch wave brake system.
Simply, it’s a car that provides extraordinary performance, every day.
A 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine is one innovation that sets the RS 4 Avant apart – and keeps it there. That’s thanks to Le Mans winning fuel-injection technology, which provides enhancements to fuel efficiency, power and torque. But this unit is capable of delivering more than just raw power; it’s also adept at using it. Launch Control combines both braking and acceleration to give you the quickest possible start, taking the RS 4 Avant from 0 to 62mph in just 4.7 seconds.
Once you accelerate, the engine provides consistent power build-up and superb responsiveness across the entire rev range. So, when you need to ask for that bit more power, whatever the situation, you can be confident it will deliver.
