RS4 Avant

CAR (UK) - - Insider -

One of our favourite fast Audis is back: meet the new RS4 Avant, wicked wagon of choice for well-heeled fam­i­lies in a rush. Sadly, the V8 of yore is no more, re­placed by the same 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 you’ll ‹ind in the RS5. If you want high-rolling V8 tim­bre, best pop into the AMG show­room next door.

With a mir­ror-im­age 443bhp and 443lb ft, Audi’s load-lug­ger will hit 62mph in 4.1sec and top out at 174mph, if you spec the op­tional RS Dy­namic pack. It should han­dle through the cor­ners, too, with the qu­at­tro driv­e­train paired with an op­tional ac­tive di—er­en­tial to spread torque across the grip­pi­est wheels.

It’s due in UK show­rooms in early 2018, priced from £61,625.
