The new Audi RS 4 Avant will roll into dealerships this fall, with a base price in Germany of €76,600. Standard equipment includes the parking system plus, automatic air conditioning, the concert CD radio with eight speakers, folding rear seats including a load-through hatch, and an extensive package of safety features and restraint systems. This includes six airbags, the integral Audi head restraint system and Isofix anchor points for child safety seats in the rear.
There is also a wide range of comfort and convenience options. These include the convenience key, adaptive light, high-beam assistant, panoramic tilting sunroof, three-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning, tinted rear windows, shades for the side rear windows and a storage package.
Audi offers all of the assistance systems from the A4 model series for the new RS 4 Avant. The driver information system with rest recommendation function (standard) detects when the driver is getting tired. Adaptive cruise control keeps the car at a set distance from the car ahead.
At speeds below 30 km/h (18.64 mph), it initiates a full brake application in the event of an impending collision. Audi side assist uses rearward-facing radar sensors to make changing lanes safer, Audi lane assist uses slight steering interventions to help the driver to stay in the lane and the parking system plus with reversing camera facilitates maneuvering.
A wide range of multimedia components is also available. The top-of-the-line system is MMI navigation plus, a control and navigation center with a large hard drive, a DVD drive, a 7-inch color monitor with 3D graphics and whole-word destination input. Hi-fi fans can order the Bang & Olufsen Sound System, which sends 505 watts of power to 14 speakers.
The ideal complement to MMI navigation plus is the Bluetooth online car phone, which uses a UMTS module to connect the Audi RS 4 Avant to the Internet. Passengers can surf the web freely with their mobile devices via the integrated WLAN hotspot. For the driver, the system delivers tailored online services from Audi connect to the car – from Audi online traffic information to navigation with images from Google Earth to the new web radio Audi music stream.
