2018 Audi RS4 Wagon Design and Specifications. Last April, the prototype of 2018 Audi RS4 was spotted doing some tests at Nurburgring street. And, we were very lucky to be blessed with some spy shots.
Since Audi A4 that was revealed last year feature many significant updates, we have so many expectations for this more powerful muscle wagon. Unfortunately, Audi RS4 is set to debut in mid-2018, which is still pretty long, so the information about this car is still very limited.
2018 Audi RS4 Specifications
Features, Exterior and Interior design
The new 2018 Audi RS4 prototype doesn’t show a lot of changes. It still retains the distinctive styling cues from the current version such as the aggressive front bumper, strong-looking fender, and its iconic oval-shaped exhaust tips. Sadly, we probably will not get other hints of the visual update until the official revealing comes.
The most noteworthy change is in the weight of the 2018 RS 4 car. Taking advantage of MLB EVO platform and its lightweight construction, the weight is significantly reduced. And, it is now 3,600 pounds lighter compared to the current S4. MLB EVO platform is also used in Audi A4 and will probably be used to underpin other models that will come in the future.
Engine changes — 2018 Audi RS4 Avant Wagon
The engine for the upcoming RS4 Avant will be downsized. While the outgoing model comes with 4.2 L naturally aspirated V8 engine with 450 HP and 317-pound feet of torque. Then, the new Audi 2018 RS4 will be powered by a V6 engine. Probably the twin turbo version of the recently launched S4.

It is very likely that Audi will give the significant boost of power for the upcoming RS4. Hence we can expect it to have around 460 to 475 HP. The engine maybe will be paired with eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox from RS6, RS 7 and S8. But, the 7-speed dual clutch transmission is also possible. Furthermore, we can also expect this car to come with the all-wheel drive system.
2018 Audi RS4 Release Date and Price
The full specifications will be unveiled in late 2017. And, the sales will commence sometime in summer 2018. The official pricing probably will be announced during the unveiling. It is still unclear whether 2018 Audi RS 4 will also be released in the US or stay inside Europe region just like the current model. But, Audi representative once stated that the possibility for RS4 to enter US market is not ruled out even though it is not common for a muscle wagon to go to the US.
However, even though at the end that RS4 doesn’t available for US customers, you don’t need to be sad because Audi still has something great like RS5 Sportback for US market.
