Product Overview

Audi RS 4 Avant B8 (Typ 8K) is a high-performance compact executive station wagon in production from 2012 to 2015. It was available with a single naturally-aspirated V8 engine that displaced 4.2 liters.
Interestingly, even though Audi fully committed to turbocharging for the standard B8 A4, the RS 4 Avant used an evolved version of the venerable 4.2L naturally-aspirated V8. Paired to a 7-speed DCT transmission (marketed as S tronic), this engine provided the enjoyable power delivery that only a naturally-aspirated engine is able to.
Styling-wise, the B8 RS 4 Avant is arguably a notable leap forward, too.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the B8 RS 4 Avant comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
