New Audi RS4 Quotes

Performance

Although the C63 AMG Estate has a daunting 6.2-litre V8 engine the RS4 is powered by the same V8 engine as the R8 supercar which sees it rack up a surprising 444bhp.

The RS4’s seven-speed S tronic gearbox makes for swift and smooth driving so there’s minimal pause in acceleration and it tears through gears with ease. It has 4-wheel drive and a launch control system which makes it fast on the road doing 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph - giving exactly the same results as the Mercedes C63.

Depending on which option of RS4 is chosen, the top speed will increase to 174mph, which sees it streak past the BMW M3‘s top speed of 155mph and a 0-60mph of 4.5 seconds. Test drives will be available for all models of the RS4.

Running Costs

It’s expected that the RS4 is an expensive car to run, it boasts 26.4mpg, but it’s a more likely 19mpg with the V8 engine and with the 249g/km of C02 emissions it’s likely to cost more tax. However, the rival Mercedes C63 makes Co2 emissions of 285g/km and it has a pricier entry level at £58,130, compared with £55,525 of the RS4.

However, the RS4 has a distinct advantage in terms of re-sale/the used market despite the expense of servicing and insurance as it is a desirable sports car with enough family and luggage space to make is an everyday car.

Equipment

For the price of entry cost and running there is plenty of standard equipment including 19-inch alloy wheels, quattro permanent all-wheel drive with sports differential and brake recommendation system.

The interior includes leather/alcantara with RS embossing, leather armrests, RS Super Sports seats, Audi Music and Bluetooth interfacing, 3-zone climate control and carbon inlays.

The exterior collides between sports supercar and family car with estate looks but also roof spoiler and matt-finished aluminium-look door mirror housings, window trims and grille. Full standard specs for the interior and exterior of the RS4 are in the brochure.
