Today, Audi officially unveiled the 2018 RS 4 Avant at the Frankfurt motor show – the world’s best hot wagon is back, baby!

Instead of the previous generation’s V8, the new RS 4 Avant is powered by a 2.9L twin turbo V6 that produces 331kW of power and 600Nm of torque. Drive is sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed torque converter auto. These figures push the RS 4 Avant to 100km/h in just 4.1 seconds and on to a top speed of 280km/h.

The RS 4 wears either 19 or 20-inch wheels. They are in turn connected to sport suspension that is 7mm lower than a regular A4 Avant, or optional RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) and RS sport steering. Brakes wise, the RS 4 Avant packs carbon ceramic brakes front and rear – further, it has a rear sport differential.

Cosmetics wise, the outside of the RS 4 Avant is covered in menacing intakes – it also has Audi RS’ trademark dual oval-shaped exhausts and 30mm wider arches than a regular A4. Inside, it has sport bucket seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and plenty of performance highlights and stitching.

The new Audi RS 4 Avant goes on sale in early 2018 for a starting price (in Europe) of €79,800. What do you think of the new Audi RS 4 Avant? I love it – there’s nothing like a blue, turbo V6 wagon – put your thoughts down below.
