The new Audi RS 4 Avant will go on sale in Ireland priced from €102,350.

Under the bonnet, the Audi RS 4 Avant’s newly developed 2.9-litre V6 twin turbo TFSI engine V6 twin turbo has 450hp and 600Nm of torque. The car accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.

Inside there’s a digital racing-style cockpit. RS-specific displays indicate to the driver the g-force, tyre pressures and torque.

Quattro four wheel drive comes as standard as does an RS sport suspension that sets the Audi RS 4 Avant another seven millimetres lower than an Audi A4 with sport suspension.
