Audi RS4 Competition rumored to be coming to America
Exciting news for wagon fans and Audi enthusiasts: the Audi RS4 Competition may be heading to the United States, according to an inside source from the German automaker. The rumor started when a group of journalists drove the Euro-only RS4 Competition and the RS5 Competition in Spain, and expressed their admiration for the high-performance wagon. An Audi employee then revealed that the RS4 is indeed coming to America, but others in the room tried to downplay the comment as a mistake or misunderstanding.
Now, six months later, the same source confirms that the RS4 will be sold in the States, following the success of the RS6, which sold out its 2,000 units quickly. While wagons are not popular in America, there is a strong demand for high-performance ones among car enthusiasts. The RS4 Competition, with its 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 444 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, is sure to attract attention and admiration on the roads.
Future of RS4 likely to be electric
Although the exact release date is not known, it is speculated that the RS4 will be available in America for the final two years of its production, 2024 and 2025. As for the future, it is possible that the next-generation RS4 will be electric, as Audi is shifting its focus towards electrification. Meanwhile, let’s look forward to seeing the RS4 Competition in action on American roads, and hopefully, more wagons like the RS3 Sportback will follow quickly.
