2013 Audi RS4 Avant | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Audi RS4 Avant. 2013 Audi RS4 Avant is one brand new car from Audi that was released in 2013. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2013 Audi RS4 Avant.
Audi’s high-performance wagons are icons. The mid-1980s saw the 100/200 Turbo Wagon, and things got really wild with the RS2 launched in 1994. It was an over-the-top variation of the Audi 80 Avant created with assistance from Porsche, powered by a 315-hp version of Audi’s 2.2-liter turbo five-cylinder and wearing wheels from the 964-gen Porsche 911. (Its side mirrors and front turn signals were from the 993, too.) The RS2 was followed in 1999 by the first RS4, which packed a 380-hp, 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6. Audi launched the second-gen RS4 in 2005 with a naturally aspirated, extremely high-revving 4.2-liter V-8; this powerplant was engineered by Wolfgang Hatz, now head of Porsche R&D. For the first time, Audi offered a sedan and a convertible in addition to the station wagon. The previous-gen RS4 was sold until 2009. One year later, the RS5 coupe was launched on a platform shared with the current A4, as a sort of RS4 stand-in.
But now the RS4 returns but only as a station wagon, to be launched at the Geneva auto show next month. The engine remains true to its immediate predecessor, as the car is powered by a 4.2-liter direct-injected V-8 that produces 450 hp at 8250 rpm. Maximum torque stands at 317 lb-ft and is available from 4000 to 6000 rpm. The performance is more than adequate: Audi claims a 0-to-62-mph sprint of 4.7 seconds; we’re guessing that’s at least a few ticks on the conservative side. Top speed is limited to 155 mph unless you pay to relax the governor, at which point the fun ends at 174 mph.
Audi has modified the exterior with a wider body that ever-so-slightly recalls the Ur-Quattro of 1980, and the rear end is punctuated by two large, oval exhaust tips. The front and rear bumpers and the roof spoiler are unique; the front is characterized by large, functional air intakes and a silver-painted splitter. The interior is fitted with sports seats; the standard interior trim is carbon fiber, but it can be replaced by piano black, stainless-steel mesh, or aluminum in one of two finishes (brushed matte and something called “Race”). Finally, there’s a flat-bottomed steering wheel.
2013 Audi RS4 Avant Price :
The price is a cool €76,600 in Germany, which includes a 19 percent tax. That’s just about as much as the RS5 coupe. Its competition includes the Cadillac CTS-V wagon and the Euro-only Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG wagon. Will we get the RS4 Avant in the U.S.?… Probably not. Even the regular A4 Avant will take a back seat in favor of the A4 Allroad.
2013 Audi RS4 Avant Interior :
The Audi drive select dynamic system is standard. Dynamic steering, the sport differential and the sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) are available as options. The latter is a purely hydraulic system without any lag, whose damping can be switched between the three characteristics comfort, auto and dynamic via Audi drive select.
The design of the new Audi RS4 Avant also expresses its dynamic nature. The wedge-shaped headlights use xenon plus technology, and the LED daytime running lights constitute a narrow brace. The upper corners of the large single-frame grille are tapered. Sharp creases divide the engine hood, and large air inlets structure the distinctive front skirt. The rear lights feature LED technology.
2013 Audi RS4 Avant Exterior :
The high-performance character of the Audi RS4 Avant is clearly evident at first glance. The elegant exterior design is distinctively accentuated by sharp details that change the exterior dimensions compared with the volume model. The new top model in the model series is 4,719 millimeters (15.48 ft) long, 20 millimeters (0.79 in) longer than the A4 Avant. It has a width of 1,850 millimeters (6.07 ft), which is 24 millimeters (0.94 in) wider than the model on which it is based, yet its height of 1,416 millimeters (4.65 ft) is 20 millimeters (0.79 in) lower.
The hexagonal single-frame grille is set in a frame with a matt aluminum-look finish; its honeycomb insert is finished in high-gloss anthracite and adorned with an RS4 badge. LED daytime running lights encircle the xenon plus units like a clasp in the wedge-shaped headlights with a wavy bottom edge. The air flows through large air inlets broken up by angled struts and covered with honeycomb grilles. They are integrated into a boldly contoured bumper that tapers into a splitter edge. The low center air inlet is divided into three small openings.
The side view is dominated by the chiseled side sill caps and flared wheel wells. The flared side elements with the sharp horizontal upper edges are a small tribute to that all-wheel drive pioneer from 1980, the Audi quattro. The side mirror housings and trim strips have a matt aluminum-look finish, and an extended roof spoiler with a recessed center segment increases the downforce on the rear axle.
Catching the eye at the intensively sculpted rear end of the car are the RS4 badge and the prominent bumper. The two large, elliptical tailpipe tips of the dual exhaust system are integrated into the diffuser, which extends far upward. In the upper section of the diffuser is a honeycomb insert. If the optional matt aluminum styling package is selected, an aluminum-look contour above the insert separates the diffuser from the body. The standard LED rear lights radiate elegant light patterns.
2013 Audi RS4 Avant Engine :
The strong heart of the new Audi RS4 Avant has eight cylinders. The 4.2 FSI, which displaces 4,163 cc, combines excellent pulling power with instant response and an exhilarating willingness to rev, all backed by a widely differentiated, musical sound spectrum. The V8 produces 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) of torque from 4,000 to 6,000 rpm and puts out 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm. The maximum torque is 8,500 rpm. The naturally aspirated FSI has a specific power output of 79.5 kW (108.1 hp) per liter of displacement; each hp only needs to move 4.0 kilograms (8.82 lb) of weight.
The 4.2 FSI accelerates the new top model in the A4 family from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). This can be increased to 280 km/h (173.98 mph) upon request. The eight-cylinder engine averages 10.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (21.98 US mpg) – 26 percent less than the previous model.
The technologies from the Audi modular efficiency platform are behind this impressive figure. The cylinder barrels and the chain drive are characterized by minimal friction, and the oil pump is demand controlled. The normally aspirated V8 is also a visual experience. Its cylinder head covers are painted red, and an optional carbon inlay adorns the intake plenum. The hand-built 4.2 FSI has a classic cylinder angle of 90 degrees. The two opposing banks are offset by 18.5 millimeters.
First introduced 12 years ago, the Audi RS4 Avant is a modern classic. Audi now presents the third generation of the car, with a high-revving V8 FSI developing 331 kW (450 hp), a high-performance drivetrain and a diverse range of assistance and infotainment technologies. Like all RS models, the new RS4 Avant is a sports car for everyday use. It combines strong performance with unrestricted utility.
The new Audi RS4 Avant is immensely powerful. Its 4.2 FSI produces 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm, with 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) of torque available between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. The normally aspirated, high-revving V8 accelerates the top of the line Avant from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). This can be increased to 280 km/h (173.98 mph) upon request. However, average fuel consumption is a mere 10.7 liters of fuel per 100 km (21.98 US mpg).
With its long top gear, the standard seven-speed S tronic contributes to the good fuel economy. Launch Control manages starts with optimal traction at the push of a button. As with every Audi RS model, the engine’s power flows to all four wheels via the quattro permanent all-wheel drive, here in the latest stage of development with the self-locking crown gear center differential and torque vectoring. Audi also offers the optional sport differential, which actively distributes the power between the rear wheels.
