The Audi RS4 Avant can be very comfortable in the right spec, but whatever suspension you choose it with, it doesn't handle in a way that competes on the level of an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifolgio, BMW M3 or Mercedes-AMG C63. And if it's a fast estate you want, the C63 has almost the same practicality, but bucket loads more fun.get the best price
Equipment levels are generous, even in this standard trim. It includes bespoke RS body styling, 19in alloy wheels, a sport rear differential, nappa leather seats (powered, heated and massaging up front), power-folding door mirrors, three-zone climate control, privacy glass, a 10-speaker stereo, twin infotainment screens (featuring sat-nav and Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto), front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and Matrix LED headlights. We reckon that's most of what you need, so it's our pick.
Engine: RS 4 TFSI Quattro
The RS4 packs more than enough punch for the German Autobahn. With 444bhp, it can get from 0-62mph in just 4.1sec and onto an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (this can be increased to 174mph as an option). That performance comes courtesy of a turbocharged V6; an engine shared with the Porsche Panamera 4S. In normal use, it’s a smooth and refined unit that fades into the background, while in Dynamic mode, it howls and parps. However, a turbocharged V6 will never be able to compete with the monstrous V8 in the C63 – an engine that sounds truly wonderfully and more engaging at almost any speed.
