The spacious interior is sporty and elegant; the fit and finish of uncompromising quality. The controls, another classic Audi strength, are intuitive to the last detail. The terminal for the optional MMI navigation plus, for example, has five hard keys for the menu functions, and the volume control now includes a skip function for moving to the next song.
The interior is entirely in black. The one exception is the headlining, which is optionally available in lunar silver. Carbon inlays are standard, with matt brushed aluminum, 3D-look Aluminum Race, black piano finish or a light stainless steel mesh available as options. quattro GmbH also offers a selection of elegant wood veneers as part of the Audi exclusive range for further customization.
The S sport seats are standard in the dynamic top model. They feature large side bolsters on the backrest and the extendable seat cushion, integrated head restraints, seat heating and power adjustment, including a four-way power lumbar support. The S sport seats are covered with a combination of black leather and Alcantara.
Audi offers Fine Nappa leather in black or lunar silver accentuated with rock gray piping as an option. Other options include bucket seats or luxurious, climate-controlled comfort seats with a ventilation function. The Audi exclusive range includes high-grade leather packages, including bucket seats covered in diamond-quilted Valcona leather.
A world of wonders: behind the steering wheel
The leather multifunction sport steering wheel has a deeply sculpted rim covered in perforated leather. It is flattened at the bottom, and the shift paddles are in aluminum look. The control buttons and rollers provide fast access to the driver information system with its color display. It includes a special RS menu with a lap timer and an oil temperature gauge. When the car is started, both it and the MMI screen display an RS welcome logo, and the needles of the speedometer and tachometer briefly run up before returning to zero.
The bezels of the instrument cluster and the center console shine with a piano finish, and the design of the selector knob of the seven-speed S tronic is unique to the RS. The door openers taper down to separate, narrow bars – a classic RS detail.
The pedals, the footrest, the air vents, the MMI buttons and many other controls feature a gleaming aluminum-look finish. Chrome clasps encircle the power window buttons and the seat adjustment switches. Aluminum inlays adorn the door sill trims, which like the head restraints, the steering wheel, the instrument cluster and the gear selector lever are accentuated with RS 4 logos.
The Audi RS 4 Avant is a sports car with very practical talents for everyday use.
