And then now, with the new B9 RS 4, Ingolstadt’s favourite union is back agian… with a back.

When Audi first introduced the RS 4 at the turn of the century, they made a conscious decision to field only an estate vehicle. Quite a bold move, considering that BMW fielded both a sedan and an estate.

Maybe they could see that estate cars were the way to go making a name for themselves when going up against the likes of BMW M and Mercedes-AMG vehicles. Five years on, the next RS 4 is introduced with sedan and estate bodies… so maybe not… and then they went solely estate again, with the B8, or third generation car.

And then now, with the new B9 RS 4, Ingolstadt’s favourite union is back agian… with a back.

But personally, I feel that Audi should stick with their Avant body style when building the RS 4. There truly is something magical about the way the car looks. Some of their design inspiration is taken from the IMSA GTO prepared Audi 90 quattro. The RS 4, like its RS 5 sibling , both feature box style wheel arches, and both cars also sport similar vents at the edges of the front and rear lamps, albeit just being decorative mouldings, reminiscent of the Audi 90 GTO’s rear-ward facing vents which flank the tail lamps. As with all RS vehicles, the RS 4 gets a pair of elliptical tail pipe finishers, and within each one, a real pair of tail pipes reside.

The RS 4 is easily identifiable in your rear view mirror with its ‘floating’ spoiler up in-front, its hexagonal grille which houses its RS 4 badging, Audi rings and at the base of the surround, ‘quattro’ relief badging, indicating the car’s ability to drive all four wheels.

The RS 4 is wider in the front by 15mm and 29mm at the rear, the car sits lower by just 5mm as compared to the S4 Avant. Length-wise, there is an additional 36mm over the S4 Avant, which is mostly attributed to the frontal overhangs. At 2,826mm, the RS 4 has a wheelbase which is 60mm more than its RS 5 Coupe Sibling, hinting off a more comfortable ride.

In keeping with its sporty styling, the Avant body style naturally features a rear windshield with a low angle of rake, and to complete the roofline, a dual-finned wing at the rear.

Our test car was also equipped with a set of fancy and limited production, design aluminium alloy wheels, each one milled from a solid block of aluminium alloy, and then colour accented with Anthracite Matt Black. (Mental note: do not kerb those rims)…
