2020 Audi RS4 Avant: Facelifted wagon is coming to North America

Wagons are not the most wanted cars at the moment, especially not in North America. Most of the automakers are strictly focused on crossovers instead, and that’s the biggest reason why we can’t see the awesome Audi RS4 Avant here. However, things might change when the updated model arrives sometime next year. The nameplate will receive an extensive refresh inside, out, and under the hood, so the company could reconsider the idea of bringing the amazing wagon to the U.S. Moreover, they’ve released a tweet that hints the possibility.

The high-performance wagon currently works with a 2.9-liter turbocharged V-6 making 450 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Audi RS4 Avant will use the same option which might receive some additional horsepower. Also, the gorgeous car will continue to exploit an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-biased all-wheel-drive system. This will be a very fast wagon: with a 0-60 mph time being around 4 seconds and a top speed limited to 155 mph, the Avant can beat the fastest available crossovers without any problem. Though, if you want to push its gas paddle a little bit further, you can set apart some additional cash to get the optional RS Dynamic package that raises the stake on 174 mph.

Styling changes will definitely make the vanilla Avant even more attractive. Up front, the car will receive a new, widened, and lowered grille and a new light signature without the distinctive teardrop headlight treatment. A glance around back reveals a slightly refreshed rear fascia and redesigned taillight design. On the other hand, the oval pipes stay as they were. Although the prototype uses unchanged wheels, the production model might get new ones that will still exploit high-performance tires and beefy brakes.

Inside of the cabin, the 2020 Audi RS4 Avant is going to get updated infotainment which will be supported by a new touchscreen. Yes, instead of today’s screen which hangs on top of the dashboard, the new display will most probably be integrated with the center stack.
