Extreme Audi RS4 2018 Of Next Generation Debuted in Frankfurt

Audi loves sports models - there are as many as two types of charged versions in the hierarchy - "S" and "RS". And if the first are done according to the standard recipe "a little more power + bodykit" then the second is always some monstrous tuning experiment that leads to amazing results. So it happened with RS4, which debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2017.

In the Audi RS4 Avant movement, the 2018 brings a new 2.9-liter V6 engine with two turbines, which it borrowed from Panamera 2. Here it develops the same 450 hp as the previous "eight" TFSI of 4.2 liters, but The peak torque instantly increased from 430 to 600 Nm. At the same time, its lion's share is already available at 1,900 rpm. Instead of the seven-band robot S tronic on the Audi RS4 Avant in the new body, an 8-band automatic was installed, and the drive, of course, a full-quattro.

Due to the transition to a modular platform, the weight of the station wagon was reduced by 80 kg - up to 1,790, the average consumption dropped to 8.8 l / 100 km (-17%)

Receiving orders for the new Audi RS4 Avant began in the fall of 2017, the price of a car in Germany starts from 79 800 euros. The sales of the model in Russia are scheduled for the first quarter of 2018, the cost of the universal for our market will be announced later. In this case, as is usual with the Germans, the manufacturer offers a lot of additional equipment, for which it is necessary to pay extra. This, for example, virtual instrument panel, projection display, matrix head optics, body painting in special shades from the Audi Exclusive palette and much more.

2018 Audi RS4 Outstanding Performance

What in the end? In comparison with the predecessor, the acceleration time from 0 to 100 km / h at once was improved by 0.6 seconds - up to 4.1 seconds, while the maximum is limited to 250 kilometers per hour. Having paid for the optional "RS dynamic" package, you can get 280. Alas, in terms of acceleration, most of the competitors are a bit, but faster. In the Audi RS 4 database, the Avant B9 has a Torsen center differential, a sports-tuned steering and a suspension with other shock absorbers and shortened springs (the ground clearance is reduced by 30 mm), and for an additional charge, adaptive Dynamic Ride Control racks, an active rear differential with electronic control and carbon-ceramic brakes.

Brutal Design

The model is quite different from the usual version of the Audi A4 and it's not hard to recognize when you see it on the road. First of all, with the help of the front part, this model can be distinguished thanks to more aggressive LED optics and a massive bumper with massive air intakes and the so-called chrome lip.

When looking at the profile, we notice a difference in the wheel arches, they are more bloated than it is of the conventional version, also we have a chrome rearview mirror and a pair of aerodynamic lines added. By the way, this model has 19 light alloy wheels.

The rear differs with a spoiler on the top of the trunk lid, and it also received a more massive bumper equipped with a diffuser. In the bumper nicely inserted 2 huge round branch pipe exhaust system.

Luxurious and Sporty Interior

Speaking about interior design, it will be as usual chic with a large touch screen, a more modernized design of the instrument panel. The coolest features in this version can be considered as an advanced navigation system, LED lighting and wireless Internet access.

As for the salon, now it will become much more comfortable and convenient not only for the driver, but also for the passengers, because there will be more legroom. This model will be made with the help of natural leather, modern interface and unusual steering. The fact that this model is RS will say the corresponding signs that are located on the steering wheel, wheels, pedals, which are made of strong materials in the form of stainless steel.


The suspension scheme here is the same as on the S4 Avant: a five-lever front design and a multi-link rear. However, shock absorbers and springs have different characteristics, the stabilizers of lateral stability are thickened, the silent blocks are less flexible.
