The New Audi RS 4 Avant in Carbon Black
History of Audi RS 4 Avant
The Audi RS 4 Avant’s prestige and performance take all the way back from the 1990s. It carries over its RS2 predecessors’ vision; an everyday usability car with strong performance matched with practical cabin space and functional utilities. Meanwhile, the German name RennSport, where it got its “RS” initials, literally translates as “racing sport.” Audi Sport GmbH for AUDI AG leads an assembly of the Audi RS4 in a production plant in Neckarsulm, Germany.
The first generation of the RS4 was introduced in late 1999 and went into production in 2000, making it available only in an estate/wagon’s body trims. It was much like the Audi A4 Avant but with more interesting technical features; thus, making it one of Audi’s most popular cars that year.
Its second-generation was a complete turn for the RS4, as it was made available in three different body trims and was considered the fastest A4. While the third-generation exclusively offered a station-wagon trim, marketed as a family sports car.
In 2017, the fourth-generation featured an RS4 version with a remarkable and unparalleled powertrain exploitable for everyday use. Providing the latest version with a 2.9 TFSI engine that could deliver a maximum output of 450 PS and 600 Nm of torque.
On its fifth-generation, the Audi RS 4 Avant reestablished the third-generation RS4 with the same power and torque but with a V6 Turbo unit. Serving the same purpose but with more technical upgrades as well as exterior refurbishment.
Available in a wagon/estate body style packed with exclusive Audi features such as Advanced Key, Audi Drive Select, and the Audi Virtual Cockpit. This generation has marked a new era for the Audi RS 4 Avant’s powerplant, setting new standards for everyday use vehicles. With 663,000 sales, China remains as Audi’s largest market, while its U.S. market is continuing to grow.
