2019 Audi RS4 USA
2019 Audi RS4 USA welcome to audicarusa.com discover New Audi sedans, SUVs & coupes get our expert review. Introduced for the first time in 2000, the RS4 has become one of Audi’s most iconic nameplates, despite being available for short periods of time with each generation. First offered between 2000 and 2001, it returned for 2006-2008, and then again for 2012-2015. Each time as a station wagon, but Audi made an exception and offered a sedan between 2006 and 2008. Come 2019 and the AUDI RS4 returns for the third time, again in the avant-garde body styles. But this time around word has that Audi is also planning to revive the short-lived four-door sedan, which can also return to the United States. While the German company is a mother in the matter, I have made a speculative review of what it can bring to the table.
The fact that the RS4 sedan did not return after 2008 is a bit shocking if you ask me. Audi is super competitive in almost every niche and is even trying to create its own, but for some reason it doesn’t really want a piece of the action where BMW and Mercedes-Benz are making the big headlines. The decision to offer the RS4 as a wagon only seems strange to say the least with the last competitor of Audi for the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63 dates all the way back to 2008. But apparently Audi is finally getting to your senses and a new RS4 sedan could be just around the corner.
Let’s start with the good news. Heinz Hollerweger, head of Audi Quattro GmbH, says the expansion of sales in the United States is vital to improving the performance of the division. “Europe is becoming a less important market, the United States and China are where we see that growth is happening,” he told us at the launch of the press for the new Audi R8.

First, as reported above, Hollerweger confirmed that the new car will be switched to the six-cylinder power, with a Turbo unit instead of the charismatic natural aspiration model V-8. “I think the power has increased more than enough, and of course another performance is also improved,” he said, adding that the next car will have a higher production than the last of 420 horsepower. Although he did not discuss the exact time, he said the RS4 will be released relatively early in the production cycle of the new A4. We are presuming that it means shortly after the S4, which expires next year and will stick with a modified version of the current supercharged V-6 car.

Last seen paying his dues at the Nordschleife, Audi has finally unveiled the 2019 RS4 Avant at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Here are the title figures: 444-horsepower, 443 lb-ft. Torque, a BI-Turbo V-6, 0-62 mph of 2.9 liters at 4.1 seconds, and a top speed of 155 mph. Since this is an Audi we are talking about here, it probably goes without saying that the power goes to all four wheels and is delivered through a “sportily configured” transmission of eight Tiptronic speeds.
In addition to being a little faster than the commoner A4 on which it is based, the new RS4 predictably looks much faster than the base car thanks to wider fenders, a new rear diffuser, a pair of grease, oval exhaust pipes , and the more aggressive, carbon-honeycombed front and rear fascias, which also have vents on the outside edge of the lights. Do you have to cool those LEDs in some way, amirite?

2019 Audi RS4 Interior
Inside, the 2019 Audi RS4 Avant reminds its owner of its sporting prowess by equipping the already-elegant A4 interior with a pair of sports seats, a flat-bottomed leather steering wheel, and a version of the Audi virtual booth that can now be used to monitor G-forces, tyre pressures, and torque. Ah, and the welcome light that lights up when you open the door now projects “Audi Sport” at your feet as you get in the car, in case your appointment confuses your super luxury wagon as something… minor.
2019 Audi RS4 Price
Speaking of money, the new RS4 will start at €79,800. At this point, I could say that that is the equivalent of a little over $95,000 in today’s American currency, but doing so would be absolutely useless since-surprise, surprise-this thing does not come to the U.S.
