Audi has completely redesigned its big car family in the past year and now, the brand is concentrating on upgrading the A4 range and that includes the RS4 as well. Snapped here for the first time riding through the rough winter conditions of northern Sweden.
As obvious, the A4 won't copy the headlight design of the A6. It will continue with those controversial units, which look like geometric apostrophes. Naturally, the graphics could receive some changes.
The front bumper, however, is getting redesigned. The grille, spoiler and the elements right below the headlights have evolved. While those look like a couple of speakers, they are actually the scanners for the ACC adaptive cruise control and active safety systems. There will be some changes at the back, too. Engine-wise, Audi will stick to the current 450bhp 2.9-litre V6 unit.
When the current gen RS4 came out in 2017, it replaced the old naturally aspirated V8 for the current V6 which makes a lot more torque. The new RS4 does 0-100kmph in 4.1 seconds and hits an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph. You can read more about this engine in our review of the Audi RS5 which is sold in the Indian market.
