The current-gen Audi A4 is going to get a pretty significant facelift quite soon. With that facelift will come new headlights, a new grille, new taillights and likely some new interior bits. But it’s not an entirely new model. Along with the standard A4, the Audi RS4 Avant will also be getting facelifted, as seen in some recent spy shots. Though, the RS4 in those shots was wearing quite a bit of camouflage, to hide its new face and butt. So the folks at Kolesa.ru decided to render the upcoming Audi RS4 Avant and it looks quite accurate. (We don’t own the renders but you can see them here)
In this new render, you can clearly see the details of the new facelift. The grille is now shorter and wider and the headlights lack the little notch in them that the current car’s have. Overall it’s a smoother, sleeker looking front end that seems a bit more premium but also less aggressive.
Out back, it seems to get new OLED taillights similar to those from the Audi A6 and they look more expensive and high-tech than the sort of bland-ish ones one the current car.
The rest of it stays pretty much the same, though. There might be some interior changes, such as Audi’s new Touch Response MMI system, but those aren’t rendered here. Instead, it’s just a facelifted Audi RS4 Avant, nothing too overly dramatic looking.
It shouldn’t be any different mechanically, either. So it will be powered by the same 2.9 liter twin-turbocharged V6 and it should make 450 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. That said, it might make a bit more too keep up with its newer competition, such as the 502 hp Mercedes-AMG C63 S Estate. We don’t expect it to make over 500 hp but it could make somewhere in the 475 hp range, if Audi decides to bump it up.
