RS4 Specs The compact Audi A4's ultra-high-performance RS4 variant trades agility for all-wheel drive capability.

Although it has loud V-8 power, it also has a comfortable and useful cabin for daily use, at least for passengers in the front seats.

Although it sounds great and accelerates like crazy, you're always conscious of how much it weighs, and steering is very numb for this type of vehicle.

The Audi RS4 Avant is likely to remain one of the most alluring vehicles to never be exported to the United States.

We greatly prefer the new RS4 Avant, which has a broader body and a lower stance than the standard A4 Avant.

Flared fenders, redesigned front and back fascias, and the car's massive 265/35R-19 or 275/30R-20 tyres highlight the added width.

A 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged, intercooled V-6 with 444 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of maximum torque is available from 1900 to 5000 rpm.

The ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, which functions so quickly that many drivers may mistake it for a dual-clutch gearbox, distributes the torque to all four wheels.

The V-6, which was jointly developed with Porsche (but was led by Audi), has no turbo lag and a slightly muffled, forceful growl.

Even while the blown six still falls short of the naturally aspirated V-8 thunder of the previous model, we'll take the smaller engine's improved performance and less weight any day.

Audi claims that the acceleration from zero to 62 mph only takes 4.1 seconds, which is almost as rapid as the two-door RS5's claimed acceleration time.

The Audi RS4 has plenty of adjustability for drivers, like many contemporary performance vehicles. We switched to the Individual setting from the Dynamic driving mode.

to maintain the most aggressive tuning for the powertrain and differential while choosing a softer suspension tune and lighter steering.

We also enjoy the stability control system's Sport level because it lets you steer a little bit with the gas pedal while still maintaining the electronic safety net.

The engine of Audi RS4 can still be heard clearly even in Comfort mode, and the throttle response is fast, if not quite as quick as in Dynamic mode.
