A few months ago, the market arrived on. This is the most powerful variant of the thanks to the mechanics that are also used by the new and the Audi S7 Sportback, a supercharged six-cylinder that delivers a whopping 347 hp.
It is an option that can be chosen with the family body. In this case, it is not the most powerful in the range since there is the new one (450 hp) that honors the history of the one in force since 1994). Who could then interest the Audi S4 Avant?
The brand itself points out the S4 has been designed for those who demand a “good relationship between benefits and consumption.” The family body also provides a remarkable cargo space. Specifically, 495 liters for the 460 of the sedan, a figure consistent with that of others in the market, is the same.
And without a doubt, the RS 4 Avant is a car not intended for all audiences. Do not attend Audi S4 Avant with an unparalleled mechanical configuration in the segment. One can choose the gasoline one to have a similar power level, the 390 hp, or the one, which will have the 374 hp. But both are gasoline, and without a doubt, the consumptions will not be comparable to those of the S4 Avant.
The price is high because the Audi S4 Avant is low at 77,485 euros. Account (here in Europe, the same does not happen in China or the United States), with the 3.0 TDI diesel V6 engine, with 347 horsepower and no less than 700 Nm of torque, a very high figure. Although the benefits do not become like those of the rivals that we mentioned with a gasoline engine, they are very good: it is capable of reaching 100 km / h from a standstill in 4.9 seconds and, if it continues to accelerate, set 250 km / h of top speed.
And all this, with a consumption of 6.3 l / 100 km, a low figure also thanks to a light hybridization system ( ) with a 48 volt battery that, although it is not able to move the car by itself, Yes it helps in times of high demand and reduces turbo delay because it integrates the compressor. The compact, air-cooled lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 0.5 kWh and is located under the boot floor. Thanks to this, it has the DGT ECO label.
For the rest, like the sedan with an h10 led bulb for low beam. It has the eight-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox and the well-known Quattro drive system, which distributes the torque between the front and rear axles in a 40:60 ratio, but can send up to 70% of the total to the first and an 85 to the second if the sensors detect adhesion losses.
The S sports suspension has a specific adjustment and can have damping control. Highlight your front brakes with six-piston calipers and 375 mm in diameter or 18-inch wheels with 245/40 tires (among the optional ones, those of 19 with 255/35 tires or about 20 in 265/30 measures). And, of course, it offers aesthetic details that you won’t see in other versions, such as specific exhaust outlets or S mode on the screen of the optional Audi virtual cockpit.
