Audi RS4

The Audi RS4 has been heralded as the perfect RS car over the generations, despite the fact it isn’t the most expensive, nor the flashiest. What it is, however, is a superbly practical, supremely fast car that offers entertainment and enjoyment for those in the know.

The RS4 walks a different path to its main rivals, being offered as a wagon only. Audi knows the appeal of these go-fast wagons well, having made the call back in 2012 to stick with the boxy-bodied estate for the RS4, after a dalliance with sedan and convertible body-types in the generation prior.

The current RS4 moved away from the last’s thumping V8 engine, but now you’ll find a zinger of a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 under the shapely bonnet of the RS4 Avant. It’s priced from $147,900.

Audi RS4 Interior

Inside, it's a blacked-out, leather-wrapped space that feels both tech-savvy and well constructed. There's ridged leather on the seats, and a satisfying chunkiness to both the flat-bottomed steering wheel and the sizeable gear shifter. 

I've heard people complain about the positioning of the 10.1-inch centre screen, perched as it is above the dash a little like an afterthought, but I really don't mind it. Its big, clear, and positioned where it is, easy to both read and reach.

Audi RS4 Seats

The Audi RS4 Avant is a five-seat wagon, delivering a spacious cabin for front and backseat riders, as well as huge boot area that rivals that of an SUV.
